    Water retention and YOU

    HOw many of you hold Alot of water and How many of you hold slim to none.

    I myself dont hold water very easily, so when im on cycle, i tend to somewhat get discouraged because i dont gain 20 pounds in 4 weeks due to dbol because i dont hold alot of water...
    Granted my stregth goes through the rooof but my weight gain isnt as dramatic as some.

    anyone else have this happen t them? or am i in this by myself?

    The title of this thread sounds like a pamplet you get in grade school

    To answer the question. I hold water like no other. I'm actually not looking forward to the bloat off dbol because I'm already holding 5-10lbs of water that shouldn't be there. I hate water retention

    Well, I would be very happy. At least with minimal bloat, the loss of weight from water retention at the end of the dbol wont fuck with your head.
    I'd probably gain and lose 8-12Lbs of water on the dbol without l-dex

    well there are some AS give me moon face and some others give me skinny face. With anadrol I always retain water. Now I'm doing a cutting cycle for 12 weeks winny and primo, eating clean and doing cardio, no water retention at all.

    I am not holding much water at all. Currently in week 10 of eth/deca cycle. I have also been taking creatine throughout. So I am hoping that I wont loose too much of the 22lbs that I have gained, hoping that it is lean mass. Just have to wait and see.

    Well, I bloat like crazy. I'm on fina and eq and I'm bloated. Not so much in the face thank god but it's there. Test and d-bol gives me the WORST face bloat and I can't stand it. And there's the dramatic loss when you come off. Trust me bro, it's way better to not have bloat. WAY fucking better.

    speaking about this, I just made a few posts about this...

    I've been terribly bloated from my t200/eq cycle...I havent added the winny yet, but will be soon...

    Anyways, it sucks when your face, stomach, and love handles looks HUGE and disgusting...... I started taking 1mg liquidex instead of .5mg and the bloating has went down a little already...so thats a better sign...

    We'll see how it goes, but BLOATING SUCKS..

    P.S. this is my first cycle...check up on my diary called " Diary Of LookingToCut "

    Pardon the pun, but does the theory that the more water you drink the less you hold, hold any water I've been drinking about 1 1/2 to 2 gallons a day.

    i am currently in the middle of wk 3 of a dbol /enanthate / deca cycle.......i am up 12lbs....minimal bloating...i think that is due to drinking about a 1 1/2 to 2 gallons of water a day and nolva ED.

    Using Testosterone Cypionate , I have not retain a lot of water, despite drinking tons of water (more than before I started this cycle). It's probably because I have sweated it out--my neck and back were getting drenched at night.

    I would never take creatin wiht AS...thats like double the water retention...don't get me wrong your muscles blow up and look huge but when you get off all that water goes away and whats left is a big let down...
