    Out of the blue im holding a lot more water in my face than normal...makes no fucking sense other than the green mag ive been taking, but im on week two of it now.....so id have expected it to start earlier............another difference in my routine is i started supplementing more of a casein protein blends rather than ON's 100% whey......besides that my diet has been cleaner than normal.....fuck if i know whats going on. it could just be that i havent had enough gallons of water :dunno:

    I've never had water retention from Green Mag myself.
    I used to get a little from creatine mono but increasing my water intake usually solved that. You definitely pinpointed the three possible causes I would attribute it to... How much of the caseine blend are you consuming? It might be a factor with me moreso because I'm lactose intollerant.

    honestly i ran out of my usual ON which im going to replace with Syntha-6 because I love that stuff :yum: so I was taking the casein blend "Max Milk" i think from EAS if im not mistaken 3x/day like i would any whey....it was a blend of casein/concentrate/isolate i beleive if im not mistaken, so about 75 grams more a day...I guess that has to be it.

    just ran out of good sources and took some time off, never planned to juice all my life, im pretty much probably going to remain natural for some time if not the rest...........did a couple cycles, good enough.

    Good call. Although I must admit that after seeing your goals before you got banned last time (wasnt your goal physique Levrone or somebody?) I was sure you would up the dose.


    I basically did the same thing however I did 2 cycles WAY before I was ready. got good gains from em but now my natural gains for the past 2 years have been S L O W.

    no slower than they would have normally been.

    relativity and increasing on a bigger frame will throw people off.

    Youre probably right. Problem really is mental. I was "spoiled" by gaining 20lbs in 2months with gear, now Im struggling with the ~10lbs a year Im gaining naturally.

    Im weak minded.

    :rofl: You actually give a fuck what people that you will never ever meet have to say on an internet message board??

    Fuck that.

    I can't deadlift 600lbs and I highly doubt I ever will. I can't lift x amount of weight like some people on here say you're supposed to before you ever touch a roid and I don't give a fuck if I can or can't.

    I'm going to use roids to reach my goals and I don't give a fuck what anyone anywhere has to say, whether it's on a forum or in real life. I've done my homework and I will continue to do it until I feel that I'm ready to use drugs.
