    Question about water weight

    i know a lot of sups/gear cause water retention, but where does the water go? does it sweel every muscle in the body making it bigger, but puffy looking? or does it all get trapped in the gut? i noticed when i was running test that I could push out my stomache to make it look like i was pregnant, but that could have been all the food i was eating, one more thing, when we lose water weight, do we lose size, say my arms are 10" and i go off my cycle and lose the water, will my arms shrink to 9 3/4" and harden? just curious because i never really guaged the effects that water retention had on me.

    ok, yah thats makes sense, cuz when i was on my test cycle, my face looked bloated and i think i was just puffy all around, that makes sense tho, like with most things it depends on the person.

    ahahaha... 10 inches?! haha. that's awesome. anyway, my friend just got done with his first cycle, & his cheeks were real bloated. the rest of him didn't look like it had too much water in it, but a lotta people said his face looked fat (not to his face, but to me)

    Where & how much water retention is individual. Generally, water goes to ones extremities like hands, feet face. Many times we do not notice how much we are actually retaining . Taking a picture while on is the best way noticing your face. Also if you have a wedding ring or any ring it should be very tight showing extra water. And yes when you loose the extra water you will feel flat and smaller but hopefully more defined.

    I hold a ton of water in my lower back. My face and gut holds quite a bit also.

    Like MMA said..the water retention generated by some substances are more noticeable in different areas...

    Using a substance like creatine...for example..generally...creatine draws water into the muscle cell..creating a state of hyperhydrosis...Creatine can also draw water subcutaneously (below the skin)..creating that puffy look (via a film of water directly above the muscle but below the skin)

    That example being given..when one 'loses the water' it is expected that some 'size' will be lost.Depending on the location and the 'type' of water retention, that can result in the muscles either looking harder..OR less full
