    I've gone from about 170lbs to 205lbs so far this semester... i eat and eat and eat... i see significant gains but on top of it all i've noticed im gaining stretch marks where my arm pit is... on both sides... i mean im not fat for say im roughly about 15% body fat at the moment... so is this common? probably a stupid question but i dont want them to leave scars...

    ya its common, I've never had stretch marks in my life until just recently. They are starting to form on my lower back, just where my waistline is. But for yours to be on your armpits I would try and treat it because thats a hard place to cover up when you are trying to show off the guns. There are a lot of lotions out there that suggest they work, who knows? I have heard that baby oil can help make the skin much more elastic so the stretch marks don't get worse.

    I have some massive stretch marks in my armpit area and I've had a few of them for a good year or so. They're a weird blue-pink color now, kind of faded.

    that shit doesn't work, I think the best way is the preventative way be stretching. I don't remember any of the details though

    That's so weird, I got one on each side between the top part of the chest and armpit area too. Only got them about a month ago after the end of my bulk, and I've been using cocoa butter once or twice a day on them. I'm not too worried yet, if they get bad, there's always plastic surgery to the rescue... lol.
