some people have veins showing in their biceps all day long.
I can see them sometimes, depending if i’m training, if my arm is flexed, or the position of my arm.
I would like to have them showing all day long. Is it just a matter of keep increasing the weight and training harder?
The people who have them showing all the time could you tell us when did it happen and what you were doing at those moments training wise?[/quote]
This is largely a factor of genetics and how lean you are. If you were in contest shape, you would be able to see your veins…unless you have NO muscle mass whatsoever. For some people, their bodies simply carry too much subcutaneous water (even at relatively lean body fat percentaged) or they don’t lean out in certain areas until their body fat levels are very low.
Muscle size can also play a factor as the bigger the muscle gets, the larger the need for blood so the larger the veins in the area become to handle the blood volume. Ronnie Coleman has a huge vein running down his biceps that is as large as some kids’ arms. Naturally, if he had no significant muscle mass, he wouldn’t have veins quite that large.
That means if you can’t see yours, either get leaner, get bigger or both.
