just stick w/ l-arginine. it the most commonly used part of most over priced N.O. products. take 3 grams before work out and 2 grams after (or during). try to take on a empty stomach, if you can. RPM by applied is a good product,used for energy and intensity in the gym, i think it also helps with vas.

Overall no. Workout, yes.
Vascularity on regular basis is based on genetics and BF%
I used to use Nitrace at 3 caps morn and after noon then 1/2 serving Pre-WO booster, over a few weeks i did notice it was up some.
My top few preWO supps...
WTF Pumped ALRI
Assault by MusclePharm
Vasocharge by Scivation
R4W by Diesel
and thats really the only ones i can think of that stand out.
Bulk stuff, Citrulline Malate, Arginine, Beta Alanine.

Plasma Jet..I hear good things about that..my bodyfat is down to 8%, so I'm pretty tight, just lacking some veins.
08-27-2008, 02:56 PM
Vascularity is highly genetic. Getting leaner can help, supplements will not make big difference.

I am decently vascular. But after I used Drive/RPM from AN I had logs running down my arms. I looked freaking sick at the gym. I also developed a couple at the bottom of my abs I never had....or maybe was just always too fat too see before lol.

It is certainly a genetic issue more than anything else. Now, if you diet down and get a bit leaner, the more you will see. For me, something with an arginine base is very important. Some of the recommendations here are good, however, I will add Swell into the mix as well.

is there such a thing as being too vas.
08-27-2008, 05:30 PM
Im taking activate xtreme and it really seems to be bringing out alot more vascularity.

try taking a diuretic especially after a cycle. i tried taraxoatone last summer and the vascularity i had was even more visible.

Also look into a quality antioxidant formula. Research shows them to be highly effective at restoring and maintaining vascular endothelial tone, especially in response to NO induced vasorelaxation.
required: NOxidant would be the most superior option here.

Not really a supplement but carb cycling and decreasing bodyfat (as mentioned) will add to vascularity. Vasolidators (arginine for example) improve vascularity.
But the king of vascularity is steroid related...OT but somewhat relevant.

RPM and Cordygen5. Cordygen makes me really vascular.
08-28-2008, 08:42 PM
In order to get more vascularity you have to lower body fat first. Anabolic Pump is great for lowering body fat as it increases AMPk which causes increased lipolysis. Furthermore, Anabolic Pump gives insane pumps and vascularity.
08-28-2008, 08:46 PM
I have worked out with a buddy for years who has so much vascularity. When we do upper body days you can see every freeking vein in the kid. When i say that tho, you would think of some skinny ass person, but he is just like i am: thick. I really hope when i start my AN stack here in a few weeks it helps me out because i would really like to increase my vascularity
08-29-2008, 01:31 AM
i want to see my vasc way more. im gonna have to try some of the stuff mentioned here. the superpump works good as hell but it goes away. ; (
08-29-2008, 06:48 AM
to the guys that are not vas., when lifting, do you lift at a slow or more of a fast rate? especially doing curls, skull-crushers and other upper body work. how ids your form? are you "rocking back and forth to curls those DB's? it seems like the guys in my gym who ask me how i got so vas. are lifting quite quickly, where as i lift VERY controlled, watching form. may not have anything to do with my vas. but courious....

Or any other glycerol. **** works for pulling water into muscle, i take it along with creatine and your veins also pop out. Its so cheap compared to other stuff that claims do it. But the pumps are insane. Especially when you work out.

Don't know about you guys, but pretty much any potent thermogenic formula will increase my vascularity, even more so during/after exercise.
08-30-2008, 04:50 PM
I find a good NO product helps with pumps, but my vascularity is not great unless I'm at a low bodyfat, regardless of the supps I'm consuming.
With that said, at around 12-14%bf right now, NOS ETHER and GlycerGrow are the only two supps that still enhance my vascularity I've heard Plasma Jet is good, but have not used it yet.
08-30-2008, 05:29 PM
pgcl... oh wait you said supp haha... honestly glycerine monosterate but its temporary

Vascularity is based on genetics and bodyfat .. I heard the more water you drink helps also
09-06-2008, 11:57 AM
Make sure your diet and lifestyle are leaning toward vasodilating and not vaso restricting rather than just looking for a supplement to help you.
I've recently read a book on heart health which gives some good advice in this area. Some foods like garlic have a vasodilating effect on your body and can make, and keep, your vascularity more prominent.
