Can the pump be dangerous?

Hi guys, sometimes when I workout, I get such a huge pump that my muscles feel like it’s going to burst out of my skin. I know that’s desired by many but can that be dangerous?

Also, I seem to only get these pumps mainly in my forearms and chest. Never my biceps or back. Why is this?

Only if you’re hidin’ plastic explosives under the long head of the bicep. If it feels uncomfy just take extra time to stretch that particular extremety. Before and post-workout. On a sidenote, I occasionally get a really freky spasm in my left forearm, sometimes abs if they’re worked over (see King’s 12 weeks to killer Abdominals). No biggie. Lata.
