A little background. I’m a nontested 220lbs class powerlifter. Competing in 2 weeks and weighing in as of this morning at 225lbs ish. I’m running Test E @100mg/E3D, Anavar @50mg/ED, Tren A @65mg/ED, and the E/C stack at 75/600 respectively. By the cycle I’m sure I can show you that I am trying to build a lean dry body with main focus being strength. However I’m on a pretty substantial deficit and cannot seem to lose any weight. I’ve noticed mainly that I seem to be bloated in the midsection (ie. Subq water and distended gut) however chest, arms, delts, and quads look lean, full and vascular.
Just went in for bloodwork this morning to check sensitive E2 and prolactin along with Test. On this dosage of test I’ve never really needed an AI and thus haven’t added one in order to make sure joints stay healthy. However along with the bloat I’m noticing lots of anxiety and ED (weak erection and premature ejaculation) I’ve since added .25 caber twice weekly to combat in the case it’s prolactin related. But why would I look so wet? I’ve read that it could be cortisol so I’ve added 700mg Ashwagandha which has definitely relieved some anxiety and it’s only my second day on it. I also dose about 600mg B6 for help with prolactin as well. Has anyone experienced this bloat while on Tren? Can someone shed some light on it?
