    How to GAIN water weight?


    This may seem like an odd question and I really haven't seen it asked before.

    What are good, different ways to INCREASE water weight in the body? (non-hormonal)

    complex carbs. for every 3 grams of extra over the top glycogen, you retain a gram of water. also 20 grams a day of creatine monohydrate like he said ^^

    Why would you do that? To add overall weight? Just curious?

    Reason I'm asking is replenishing muscle glycogen right after an intense workout and taking in plenty of water will push your weight up slightly. I've noticed this when I workout. I think I read that glycogen weighs 4 times what the same water molecule weighs, so if you are looking at packing on some weight, albeit "false" in the sense of muscle density, making sure you are at a 3:1 ratio of simple carbs to protein can be just as import to retaining weight as is taking in enough water.
    They hit everything though, you guys are well read. A good PWO mix that I use is 2 full scoops of powder gatorade (contains around 108 grams of sucrose/dextrose and electrolytes [both sodium and potassium) with 2 scoops whey isolate (50 grams) and a bannana (for added fructose [about 25-30 grams] and potassium). This will keep that weight up. Drink a crap load of water and be carefull with running high levels of sodium for long periods, it can be as important to cycle sodium loading as you do your creatine. It can put undue pressure on your thyroid.

    Gatorade. I'm sure you've heard of Louie Simmons. On his way to a meet with his buddy Chuck Vogelpohl he was drinking can after can of gatorade because he wanted to compete in a weight class higher than his. Needless to say he GAINED a ton of water.

    Agreed unless it is Post workout. You eat brown rice and red potatoes wight after you workout to create and insulin response, replinish glycogen stores, and make sure your protein is used to make muscle?
    Interesting. Sounds like a gross shake.....i'm kidding, but only half-way. How do you get the neccesary simple carbs needed after working out to go with your protien if not through some powder that can be mixed and consumed quickly?
    You're stats indicate you are leaner than me by about 15 lbs, so I would think a quick glycogen replacement would be extreamly important with your BF. What are your thoughts?

    Thanks guys. Keep the advice coming if you have it.

    I'd like to increase my water weight a bit. I like the way my arms and traps look when I have some additional water weight. I'm very lean, and Im not going to cycle anymore... so Ive noticed it's difficult to keep my water weight where I like it.

    The quickest and easiest is to consume a high amount of carbohydrates.

    Otherwise, the other main things to do are:
    * Decrease water intake
    * Increase sodium intake (but keep water intake the same)
    * Use a product that will cause/help with water retention

    Actually, for every 1 gram of CARBOHYDRATE, you retain 3 grams of WATER.

    well yea i drink a whey shake post workout, eat fruit like bananas/berries with an equal glucose/fructose ratio when im in the car. when i get home i eat the full meal of pro/fat/complex carbs. you arent depleting your glycogen completely, there have been studies that show only a rather modest % used even after intense exercise. now if you sprint for 1.5 hours straight then yea, 100% intensity of activity will deplete your glycogen very much. otherwise, lifting weights or doing BJJ/muay thai (in my case) provides a range of different intensity of workouts, so energy is derived from fat oxidation as well as muscle glycogen.

    i eat a paleo diet so i dont do processed sugars or corn starches or anything like that. i used to be the dextrose/maltodextrin guy but it bloated me, gave me heartburn. that stuff is not necessary. now im leaner and i recover faster, figure that.

    Decrease your potassium intake. Increase your sodium intake.

    Or you can just have someone punch you in your kidneys real hard to damage them so you can go on dialysis from acute renal failure.. you'll be able to gain all the water weight you want!

    Hmmm....getting punched in the kidney......

    Never thought of that. Good idea.

    Try the sodium first though, might help you with your lift more than a sucker punch to the kidney.

    A massive cheat meal... without the use of any GDAs or diuretics.
