    Yeah yeah...theres no real way to do it but surgery. How the fuck do you get guys blowing up 60-70lbs in the offseason and then coming in tight as fuck??? What are some things I can do to help tighten up loose skin? The skin on my chest is tightening and I'm sure it will be fine by competition time if things keep up the way they are. But I have this fucking disgusting loose skin hanging over my lower abs. On calipers it doesnt measure more than 3mm on average up to 5 in some of the ticker spots. But it looks fucking disgusting...What can I do:wtc:

    honestly I think GH has a lot to do with keeping keeping pro's skin taut, but I may be wrong

    increased collagen, perhaps?

    jeremy, not much you can do.. try yohimburn.. it helps both with spot fat reduction and water loss, maybe losing water from that area will cause it to tighten up?

    ronnie uses it.

    be patient, probably just takes time for it to shrink back up. how fast did you lose the weight and how long has it been?

    It doesnt matter. That shit just doesnt go away, the only permanent fix is surgery after a certain point. It also depends on how long you were fat.

    Doesn't work that way. It'll thicken the skin a little but thats about it. Most is genetic and off season most BB'ers don't get obese.

    so if i've been slightly obese all of my life, there's no way i'll ever have a 6 pack without surgery?

    If you've been severly over weight then no. There is a picture in a thread that has a guy that was a fat powerlifter and now hes lean. You can see abs along with skin under his arm and lower abs. If you're younger or have great elasticity then its another story but even then there are limits.

    You'll know when you get leaner if you need surgery or not.

    Bartley was also close to 300 and the dude is like 5'6" so that's a bit different.

    It was an example that was availible. There are other examples on this board but it would be wrong to point them out.

    EDIT: A good indicator is stretch marks, thats an area that has been stretch past the limits of elasticity.

    in your guys' opinion, will i be able to get defined 6 pack? i am lean for the first time in my life, and am 21, will the skin 'shrink' enough for me not to need surgery and have definition in the lower abs?
