Hey everyone, I put on about 20-25 pounds fairly quickly between late August and December, doing TBT and the first half of ABBH I, from 6'2 ~170 to 6'2 195-200 down to 6'2 ~190 after some time off from the gym over the break and not eating my regular bulking diet.
I'm obviously not done gaining weight, but my problem is that i'm getting some stretch marks on the top of my biceps and under my armpits. I'm staying hydrated and eating well, taking fishoils, multi vitamins etc. I've started rubbing vitamin E and aloe on my stretch marks at night before I go to sleep, is there anything else I can do?
My plans as of now: once I finish the second half of ABBH I (I divided the program into two three week programs for before/after winter break since I had travel plans that interfered with lifting regularly) I'll start Quattro Dynamo, eat a bulking diet, and hope to put on a few more pounds of muscle. Hopefully this won't worsen my stretch marks terribly, as QD is more strength than size focused.
My goal for the near future is to be a lean 210. I've got a fast metabolism naturally, so the lean part won't exactly be the problem, heh.
