Brief Answer:
Workout substances are not included in drug testing

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using HealthcareMagic. I've reviewed the attached image.

There is good possibility that you will not fail any drug test as drug tests are limited to substances of abuse. In the workout substances mostly there are anabolic steroids which are tested on athletes but not on the common man.

I hope this answers you.
Feel free to write back to me.

Thanks again.
