Thread: ..Stretch marks???
10-21-2003, 01:28 PM #1
I've got them all over my biceps...some on my sides (from when i was a fat fucker ). But they're mainly on my biceps. Some say its from using too much weight, but I'm tryin to bulk up and if i dont use a good amount of weight, then I feel like I'm not getting a good workout and I'm wasting my time...Can anybody tell me how to prevent these? Because i hope to compete one day, and the judges wont like seeing them too much...I know they show that you have gained decent muscle growth, some people like em. I'm not one of em personally though...help me out guys!

Can't prevent em bro. If you grow too quick it's bound to happen.
I put lots of pressure on my biceps/triceps/delts/traps. I got strech marks all over my arms, shoulder area.
Just try some cocoa butter for a while, it fades them slowly. Plus, tanning a little bit couldn't hurt.

a few weeks before you go on a cycle use coco butter to make your skin elastic. also run somethin like liquidex in your cycle that way you wont be as bloated and your skin wont have to stretch out as much

It's best to treat stretch marks before you get them. Stretch marks are basically scars in the skin caused by lack of elasticity. To find the absolute best thing, you'd have to speak to a dermatologist. There are products now that help to hide the stretch marks also.

from what i understand, the only thing that will make them less noticible is laser surgery.
