    Dam I wish I had as little as you, wait till your legs get bigger and they appear on your inner thigh and shit.

    Peace, Spirit.

    Don't you get stretch marks from growing too fast? Maybe do a lighter cycle and grow a little slower?

    Guys, you need to see if you can put some lotion on your skin. I use lotion with aloe and vitiam A, and I have gained 65 lbs in a year before and never had stretch marks that bad, those fucking things look like they hurt.

    It also has something to do with the elasticity of your skin, seek a dermatoligist help if your concerned.

    Personally I dont think that they are to appealing to look at but hey if you guys like them then go fot it.

    You need to ensure that you feed your skin so that it is able stretch easily. To do this you need to hydrate it.

    Mabe try something like this - sorry, cant gaurantee you that it works.

    http://www.greatmothersgoods.com/esbb_moreinfo.html

    Basically what you need to try and do is maintain hydrated skin.
    Having said this, bulking very quickly is likely to give you very prominent stretch marks, however, some people who bulk quickly will never get stretch marks, genes that Mum and Dad gave you, some say, play a part in who gets stretch marks.

    Good luck Rage Control. Hoped I've helped in a small way.

    Rage, I have some just like your picture but no where else. I think it is purely genetic. My mother got bad stretch marks when she was pregnant, some women don't get any. Funny thing is I got mine when I was about 15. I was really thin, didn't have much to workout on and was doing pushups like crazy and my chest just exploded too fast for my skin to catch up. If it makes you feel better they get less red with age.

    Mine were as red as yours and now they are very light in color to where no one will notice unless they look closely.

    Battle scars!

    Q: Is there any way to get rid of stretch marks? -- Ashley in Fredonia

    A: Many creams or lotions claim that they can repair stretch marks, but the truth is that there is not much you can do about them.

    Stretch marks reflect the separation of collagen of the skin. They first appear as bright red lines and eventually fade to become silver lines.

    Stretch marks appear in 50 to 90 percent of all pregnant women. Genetics, weight gain, nutritional status and ethnicity also play a role in their formation.

    While no treatment will repair the stretched skin, there is an excimer laser technique that can improve the appearance of the silver stretch marks. Talk to your dermatologist for the best advice.

    I think I saw a thread on here one time suggesting mixing vitamin e oil with your lotion. I think suppose to help the elasticity of the skin. I'll do a search and see if I can find it.

    peace,

    I just did a search on "stretch marks" and there are MANY good ideas on how to deal with them. I was gonna post the links, but shit there are too many different posts, all with different and good ideas. RetinA, Neosporin, Vitamin E with cocoa butter, etc. Check it out, lots of useful info.

    peace,

    Give em a cool name like "Battle Scars" and be proud of them. S-T-R-E-T-C-H means growth. Besides, over time they will fade. Tanning will also help, and you don't have to go through the hassle of creams and lotions which probably won't help to prevent marks so severe anyway.

    I had strech marks before too but they faded away. Now they are white instead of red. I'm natural too, so my muscles grew slowly over time.

    I've got stretch marks on my inner thigh and under arms. At first I thought they were scars from shaving... but soon realised that they are battle scars from the gym.... WOO HOO.

    I figure in time they will heal up.

    Ive tried every cream and lotion they make to get rid of streach marks and none of it got rid of them, but i still use coco butter everyday to try to prevent any more from appearing.

    This is the exact experience I had. Mine are about the same as yours and now they are so light you would hardly notice them if I was in the same pose as you in the first pic. They will fade, give it time and skin lotion everyday.
