    Stretch Marks


    Do any of you guys get stretch marks? I'm getting more in my armpits. Does anyone know what can you do for the them?

    I guess it's really just a matter of the elasticity of the skin compared the local growth (muscle or fat). If gains are slow enough, or skin elastic enough to accomodate the expansion, I would imagine little to no stretch marks would appear. Of course moisturizing daily would help skin elasticity, just like pregnancy

    Just learn to live w/ 'em holmes....my armpits, crotch, insides of arms, calves, all have them horribly. Since I started training 2 years ago, I gained around 100lbs. Not all muscle, but w/ the help of PH/PS's the amount of fat I gained along with it is barely even worth mentioning at this time. I've tried all that crap, and nothing worked. My advice to everyone is don't try to blow up to quick if your genetics are good enough to actually let you, cuz the stretch marks will be totally disgusting and somewhat not worth it than waiting it out and gaining ultra slow and steady-like.

    When I'm with a girl, I have to first explain to her what all the red marks and nasty **** is in my groin area. Try to explain it before she thinks its some kinda STD. It's totally embarassing and ruins the mood....

    I'm gonna look into having them lasered off or whatever they do these days, cuz its a pain to deal with...

    i got them on my calves and shoulders, and biceps.

    bb.com sells something called barmon's stretch mark cream, i was going to try it.....if it doesn't work they give you your money back for up to 3 bottles, and theres before and after pictures of people who used it.....check it out.

    using mederma right now, it helps get rid of the smaller ones, the deep ones are hopeless i think.

    do it in the dark have you tried mederma? i know several who use it, and although it doesn't get all the stretch marks out, pretty much everyone has told me its gotten rid of the red/purple color.

    LOL, **** that I want to see her while it's going on, especially if she's a freak

    But yes I have them bad around the armpit down even to the bicep a little....it happens to alot of guys with quick gains. I remember back in high school my football coach would get pissed if he saw anyone with big red stretch marks, he wanted a clean team (which I actually was at that point, lol).

    maybe you should adjust the settings of your computer monitor weave; especially if you cant see the porn w/ the lights off.

    LOL, that was clever JB...haha...

    Anyways, yes, I've used Mederma before, didn't do much. But really though, when you get them as fast as you try and get rid of 'em, its kinda pointless....

    What I don't understand is, that I have the most oiliest skins than anybody you know. I have a natty tan year round, and my skin is really smooth....I'm 100% Italian so thats probably why. I could only imagine what they'd look like if I had really dry skin...

    I remember some guys were using Tazorac, but don't know if it worked for 'em..if so, I got a box full of that stuff from my early teen years.....my face resembled a huge zit with two eyes portruding out of it back then, LOL...

    Actually, I am cutting right now with Tri-max and I just noticed today that the stretch marks are becoming less noticable.
