I've been reading some stuff about retaining water after workouts. Is it actually true that muscles hold water after a workout?

At IMFL last year I went to the race weighing 143-144, I finished the race weighing 150+. I had to much salt ans to much water on the bike. When I finished I looked like the Michelin man.

I sweat a lot and have a very high sweat rate. I can easily lose 3-4 lbs on an hours run. (Without fluid replacement.) If you are gaiing weight duriing a workout, I'm assuming you are talking about running or biking or some other aerobic workout and not weight lifting or something, then you may be getting to much fluid.



My name is Sheldon and I approve this post.

I agree with Sheldon. I have the same problem and fought all last year with deydration. I started the salt tablets this year and have been much better.

I have a long workout Saturday, I think I'll do a pre/post weighing to see how things are going.

It's gotta be an individual thing. I've ran marathons, biked centuries and everything in between without having any kind of Michelin man effect. dunno

I'm not having a problem, per se. I just notice that on the days after I run, sometimes I don't feel as light as I did the day before. I drink at least 64 oz every day and usually a lot more.

I don't know about weight because I never weigh myself before and after runs. However, anything I drink after a run goes straight through me.
