well i've started working out a few weeks ago, lifting weights and doing crunches, mainly to build muscle but also to lose some fat and get stronger and in shape.
I've been doing bicep curls with 25 lbs dumbbells and doing 4 sets of 8 reps every 2-3 days. Lately I've noticed that the veins in my arms, especially my forearms have become much more pronounced and there are more than there was before. Is this normal?

yes hell monkey, you should be worried, at that pace your skin will become as frail as wet paper and then you will bleed out of every orifice in your body, drop it down to 10 lbs.

highly doubt that there are actually "more veins"

you just probably werent able to see some of them previously, since lifting weights will make your veins alot more noticeliable in your arms.

What?


You're fine, I believe I read somewhere that to burst your veins your blood pressure has to be like ten times normal blood pressure. Even if that's wrong, you'll still be fine.

haha same here.


but it's strange, i worked out for a long time and only had a few veins, but i stopped for a year and now i have all these veins and even a bicep vein. they do make me look more buff though. it just means i've lost fat, so the veins are more pronounced.


EDIT:
also, when your muscles get bigger it pushes the veins closer to the skin. it's kind of common sense...
