Ever since I started taking Creatine Monohydrate this week, I just noticed a pink/redish mark right above my left armpit, which one of my friends labeled it as a stretch mark. I've been doing a lot of bench pressing, including the flat, incline, and dumbbell benches. Is that would it could be? A stretch mark?
I'm 19 and weigh only 150, and Im not losing any weight....I thought only people who lose lots of weight get stretch marks?
Everyone that weight trains has them around the armpit area( inner bicep/pec/etc.), myself included.Nothin to be embarassed about.Most of the ones I have, I got while starting out and I was only 145lbs and doing very light weights without supplements.Theyll eventually fade to a shade very close to your natural skin tone, but never fully go away(so theyll be far less prominent than they are now).Dont worry, their an indicator your makin gains!!!!!!!!!
I also have them. They fade in time. At this point they are hardly noticeable. Keeping yourself properly hydrated and rubbing topical vitamin E oil on the area affected can minimize the occurence of new stretch marks.
The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
Im not sure if anyone knows, because nobody has mentioned it, but they do have creams that you can rub onto stretch marks to make them disappear. I don't remember the name of the stuff but if u ask for the stuff that makes stretch marks disappear, they'll know what you are talkin about
Thicker skin as a rule is more elastic. Asians statistically have thicker skin, otherwise most humans share approximately the same skin thickness other than based on bodyfat percentages which is obviously individual. Which group of asian peoples I could not say, perhaps "all." I would imagine Eskimos to have some thickness there for protection.
