Vascularity for gym/photo shoots
There are endless amounts of threads regarding the best pump products. I have found that some hinder in gym performance because high rep work gets painful much quicker.
Anyway, gym performance aside which products or ingredients give the best appearance of vascularity? I will be going into photo shoots around 6% body fat and like to have something to give me an edge.

It is a good suggestion, I will be doing this anyway and looking for something extra.
Any other suggestions?

One of the glucose products like Anabolic Pump or Slin Sane
And a nitrate product like Yok3d or Creatine Nitrate
Good vascularity has been reported with Erase as well, as it dries you out quick at 3 caps per day.

It's not something I'd recommend but http://women.timesonline.co.uk/tol/l...cle7122173.ece has some info from a male model:
OrMany male models drink alcohol — brandy and gin are favourites — to speed dehydration. “I open a bottle of red wine the night before, and on the morning of a photoshoot I have another glass of wine and some wine gums,” Martin says. “The sugar in the sweets and the alcohol draw more water from the skin, leaving you looking as lean as possible.”
“Before a shoot I would often eat jelly beans, as the sugar improves blood flow and vascularity. Having your veins stand out is desirable because it makes you look as if you are in the best shape you can be.”

The pump product is a bonus because it takes no extra effort to take a couple of pills or a serving of powder for a little bit of enhanced vascularity. I will be dehydrating, carb depleting, carb loading etc anyway.

For a 15 min affect,
10g Creatine Mono
1oz Red Wine
^Mix all together and drink.
1 tbsp M&M's
works like a charm for me 15-20 mins prior to going on stage. The only danger is that it will fill you out and make you more vascular for a short period of time, but after those 30 mins, you will flatten out and look smooth, so timing is essential and can really F u if things get delayed.

what about a plain old diuretic to get rid of water?

I had really noticeable vascularity on GPLC.

~3 hours prior, use a GDA with clean carbs and fruit
~1 hr prior, use 4.5g GPLC, 5g creatine mono, 20g PeptoPro, and 50g WMS.

It's mainly for electrolytes and to help digestion of the carbs.

Plasmajet by Gaspari was absolutely the most ridiculous vascularity/pump supp ive ever used! Im naturally a very vascular person, but this stuff had veins popping out of my face it was so intense. The only downside is the feeling that your head is gonna pop from bp I guess.

Do NOT waste your money on anything that anyone has mentioned here please. The ONE and ONLY thing you need other than to be very lean and full, is Pro Tan's product "Hot Stuff." It is what every single NPC competitor at my last show(including me) used. It works amazing and you will look sick! Now it WILL burn/tingle a little, hence the name hot stuff, so expect that, but it is hands down the best thing i've ever used. It will also darken your tan at the same time. Just google "pro tan hot stuff."
