    Stretch Marks

    Any good ways to kind of get rid of it, or make it less visible? I've gotten some stretch marks on my lower back, and my legs. Pretty noticable actually.

    This is what I did. Take vitamin E gel capsules, tare them open and apply the gel on the areas you want.

    The pink went away in weeks though it's taken years for the scars to heal and some don't

    Thanks. I have some legit ones on my lower back that aren't going away. They look pretty bad, almost like little cut marks. I'm wanting to stop the ones on my legs. What exactly causes these? I've put on about 35 pounds in 2 years, but my back I got in my first four months of working out (10 lbs).

    They are honestly more trouble than it's worth you can google a bunch of ways but it takes months or years and they just get less noticeable.

    From my understanding there caused by bad technique, or gaining or losing weight to quick.

    Even than, I'd assume you can get them just by lifting weights moderately.

    I have them on my shoulders as most lifters do, they were bad at one point, but there my flesh color now, so not to bad. When I first started lifting was when they were the worse.

    I've never seen or heard of them being on domaines lower back though, I dunno what that's about.

    I've got them really bad on my *** and going down my legs. I kind of do near my armpits but they're not bad or noticeable unless you really look for them.

    Yeah I mean it just comes with getting bigger. I don't really see it as a bad thing though.

    How could they be from bad technique?

    If your not getting them around your belly, don't worry about em

    Yeah I've never heard of them being from bad for. I think it's just from gaining a lot of weight fast.

    I was told if your doing something like flys, and overstretch it could cause stretch marks, I dunno though. Kind of makes sense though.

    So if you stretch before you workout like say your legs and over stretch do you get stretch marks?

    I don't think so, because your muscles aren't flexed.

    When you do flys, sometimes you'll see people let there arms over extend, especially with the added weight pulling there muscles down, so when they contract, not only are they overly stretched, but the muscles are also fully flexed, leading the skin tissue to expand.

    At least that's how I was told bad technique can cause stretch marks to the shoulder area.

    That doesn't make sense. Then everyone who does yoga would be covered in stretch marks.
