I'd say your at about 12-13%. Drink 1-2 gallons of water a day and keep the sodium intake lower to get rid of the majority of water weight.

Ya I agree around the 12% range give or take a few percentage points.

I'm not sure why people think creatine itself causes bloating. It causes intracellular hydration and glycogen uptake, which fills the muscles out in a similar and perhaps less pronounced way that steroids do.
If creatine powder is causing extracellular bloat, its due to something else being mixed with the creatine.

What would you say is the best way to drop some body fat without losing muscle... I want to incorporate cardio without losing gains (and I'm currently 1 week into PCT).
Should I just keep eating the same amount of calories, lift the same and add 20-30 min of HIIT cardio 3x/week after training?
I really don't want to lose any strength but could lose some lower belly/lower back body fat. It would be awesome to be down to 12-10%...
Any advice is appreciated.

But would it hurt my gains to start doing 20 min of HIIT cardio after lifting a couple days a week?
If not, when is it advisable (how long after PCT) to begin to maybe have a few days per week where I maybe have a caloric deficit and focus on cardio?

I'd take peptides like GHRP/GHRH and a fat burner that doesnt effect appetite negatively like Albuterol.
HIIT cardio EARLY AM fasted. Drink only BCAA's or something similar for another hour or two afterwards then start munching around mid morning. Get at least 10g EAA's (essential amino acids) every 3 hrs or so.
Start this way, do it for two weeks. Sprints early AM for the first two weeks, maybe 4 times per week. Make em count. After a few weeks of doing this, cut carbs in the evening, but not calories. Keep eating lots of food, just eat ur carbs mid morning to mid afternoon (or up to whenever u train) then reduce/avoid carbs after the workout, focusing on protein and healthy fats only.
Sounds counterproductive to mainstream dieting, I know. This is also why it people dont know about its effectiveness. It has worked well for me.
I've gone from 14% down to about 11% in 6 weeks and I havent done a single bit of cardio yet. I hold cardio out to get peeled. Save the best cards for last.

fueled would you be so kind to post one of your sprinting routines? And maybe a routine for a beginner to intermediate(sprinter) not a beginner lifter...

Sprint 15 seonds
Walk 15 seconds
Repeat 5 times, do this several mornings per wk
Same as week one but 7 intervals
20 second sprints
20 second walk
Same as week three but 7 intervals
20 second sprints
10 second walk
And so on...

Actually the LOW end of a normal body fat percentage is in the low 20s. So you are actually on the low end of normal. It will probably go down a bit as you gain muscle mass also.
