Stretch marks from bulking?

  1. I have gotten stretch marks on my biceps from bulking. Is this normal? I'm not exactly clean bulking because I have some sweets occasionally, but for the most part it's pretty decent.

    They'll get better but never go away completely. It's normal, my armpit/delt area has tons of stetchmarks.

    good news is that you're growing, bad news is that it takes months-years for them to lighten up

    If your stomach/arms/legs/etc. go back to their normal size before you started bulking:dunno:.

    Cocoa butter will help, they may not disappear completely. You should have used the stuff before you started bulking, and they may not have appeared at all. This is what women use when they are pregnant.

    I've got them on my chest/shoulders and am getting them on my triceps. :hs:

    I've got an 8 inch long, 1/2 inch wide one that goes from the top of my bicep, under my delt, and onto my upper side chest on each side. Worst stretch mark I've ever seen. Then lots of little ones in the armpit areas

    not always from muscle...most likely a fat stretch mark. I have done it before myself...back when i didnt know any better and used to bulk. If you get them when cutting and your under 8%....thats growth
