    Gear-induced change of skin color

    Can anyone explain the reasoning that gear produces a reddish/brownish/bronzish hue to the color of skin. My appearance has taken on a sort of orangish/bronze-like tone over the course of the past several months. It appears as if I'm hitting the tanning booth (I don't) and/or I have some Jan-Tan bronzer all over my body. I know this is due to the gear but what is the medicinal/scientific reason??

    I notice most guys including my self start to get more red looking. I always through it was due to increase RBC in the blood. I'm just guessing... but I do notice it.

    I read this effect of the gear somewhere but I can't remember where nor can I remember the details and actual way the gear does it. You might be onto something with increased RBC production.

    Got it checked 2 weeks ago. While I was relaxed, it was Pre-hypertension range: 157/91.

    I tried to do just this and they wouldn't take it because my B.P. was 2 points too high.

    Do something that helps you... ahhh "relax" - then go back. Maybe load up on some extra potassium and have an Epsom bath first.

    I'm noticing this too, especially after a workout. My upper chest especially gets pretty red. Even when I'm not lifting though I look kinda tan

    Actually, you're right. The prior appt BP was 133/90 which he called Pre-Hypertensive but the recent 157/91 was considered Hypertensive.
