S60turbo saidNo It's not what ya think.
Lately after work out when I've been doing chest presses I've been noticing two distinct larg blue veins across iether side of my chest running from my shoulders into my pecs.
Is this good and a sign that blood flow is increasing in the area or am I over doing it?
Thanks in advance
Alternatively, you could ask a trainer at your gym, or perhaps call up you GP and tell him about it, and ask if it's worth an appointment, or maybe a referal to someone who specializes in sports medicine.
I've always had a run around with my GP when it comes to my "weight". Modern medicine, at least when it comes to the US, seems to be stuck in some 1950's mentality that people don't know anything about their bodies. The usual argument goes like this:
Dr: "you're 225, you should loose some weight, you should be betwen 175-185"
Me: I'm 222 naked, 18% body fat, so I'd not only fall below 1% body fat, I'd have to cut off a leg or something"
Then my doctor looks at his notes on me, where, presumably it says "don't bother to argue about weight with patient, he knows too much" he nods and then goes on.
He has refered me to sports medicine doctors who are like "you could do to loose 15-20lbs of body fat, but not ANY more"
But hey, check with your doctor, read some journals, listen to NPR, and develop a good feeling about yourself and your body, and a healthy skepticisim about all the crap fitness and medical professionals feed you.
