Since Equipoise does not make the body retain much water bloating is not a problem. So you can be sure that what you have is lean muscle not water weight.
The Equipoise cycle usually takes 4-6 weeks before the steroid takes effect. With Equipoise the effects start kicking in around the 6th week of the cycle. Equipoise cycle done for 10 – 12 weeks will be optimal. The recommended dosage in an Equipoise cycle is 200-400mg per week.
Be sure to use PCT after this cycle to retain your gains and to kick start your natural test levels.
