    No 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

    OP, if you were in any kind of good shape, I would attribute this to just being vascular, fit, pumped.
    I get very "veiny" when working out. Only people I see get like this or either thin/defined like me, or muscular and Bbers. Not fat guys.
    I would check with your doctor to be on the safe side.
    I could be 100% wrong, and I hope I am.
    Good luck. icon_wink.gif

    Wow, what a bitch walk this is, and to think I was enjoying the site.
    Sorry if the question was so offensive.
    I've gone from 249lbs as shown in my pics to 211 and my body fat has gone form 36% to 22%.
    without trying to sound sappy I was finding this site a real source of inspiration and really don't get the personal attatcks........oh well.
    I'm guessing this sort of behavior may have something to do with all the
    "troll" attacks everyone is always talking about.
    Have a good day guys - time for work.

    Well personally I think you look good in your original photos. And with the changes you've made since....WOOF!

    This site seems bipolar at times. Postings in the forums get nasty, but comments on the photos are most always very supportive.

    OP, I think you're looking good. It's great that you've lost the weight. You do look good in your pics and you're on the right track.

    Oh well, don't come crying here after being hospitalized from a clotted artery because you listened to the people here instead of going to a doctor.

    WTF?
    What's with the personal attack? icon_confused.gif
    I was telling you that I don't think it's normal for fat guys to see a blue bulging vein while working out. There are some fat guys at my gym that work harder than many, and they don't get that.
    You're upset that I used the word fat? Boo-fucking-hoo! You are.
    You are 5'9 212 at that height and weight, if you are not muscular, then you are fat. (36"W on 5'9" is fat) I commend you from being obese to what you are now. Think it's great. Pretty soon you will attain your goals!
    It wasn't meant as a personal attack. Why act like such a little girl about it?
    But don't worry, it certainly got you some ego-boosting compliments from some.
    Instead of crying about it, take that anger/upset to the gym and keep going to where you physically want to be, And earn those veins! icon_wink.gif

    Tristan I think you were a bit insensitive but correct. the veiny look comes from the low BMI. The orginator of the thread does not have the low BMI that would create the "Veiny" look.

    S60turbo, Fucking see a DR. That is why you have a Doctor they are the only ones who can make a quaiantative anaylsis of your body and your Cardio Health. You Unzipped, don't call people "weasly faced" because they don't fawn over you and your weight loss.

    I would think it's just part of being pumped during a workout. But if you are worried, see the doctor.

    One of the great things about RJ is very often when you ask a question...you get an answer. However, if you want the gentle, cuddly "Oh you have such a pretty face" kinda answer, you may wanna join the gals over at Weight Watchers.

    You may also want to read some of the profiles of the dudes who are answering you before lamenting your "bitch walk."

    Paulflexes, I believe, has lost something like 60 pounds and completely transformed himself. He is offering solid - if overly blunt - advice based most likely on his own RL experiences.

    Having had some interaction with Tristan, I can tell you he does not bother to mince words EVER and is quite dedicated to fitness in general and muscle / body building specifically. He is equally straight forward when complimenting as he is when discussing weak points. He was not attacking you. He was using specific words to illustrate statements of fact.

    You have chosen a very specific main pic and even state in your profile that you will post pics "when worthy." Clearly you are aware of your comparative fitness status on a site like this. In short, if you wanna swim in the ocean be prepared to see a coupla sharks and learn to swim as fast as them. You are already on your way!

    Now, in the interest of indulging you a bit, here is an answer that is more in line with the one you may have been hoping for:

    DUDE - yer gettin' vascular cuz the muscle you are building requires more oxygen and your body is responding to the massive pounding ya been giving it. Nice work Man - pecs are bulging really nice and yer gettin' real peak to to those biceps. Keep going Bro - yer lookin' awsome. Shitz seriously HOT Dude!!!!!!!!

    That being said - DO check with you doctor and keep going, the rewards are tremendous!!!!!

    Good luck!!!!

    Have some tact...

    none of us is perfect and he's already said that he comes here to get inspired. I mean shit...do you have to have your eyes like that when you take a picture? It's creepy.

    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.
