I am 21 years old and have been working out for a full year. about 4 days a week. I am 5’8 and 160 lbs. Even though i have gotten bigger, I have noticed that I am not that vascular when I am at the gym or just flexing. Why is that? I don’t have defined veins anywhere, even on my bicep. Mostly I see it in the inside of my elbow.
When I was in middle school I remember showing off how I could get veins to pop out when I flexed. Perhaps it is because I was naturally lower in my fat then, but I do not consider myself that bulky or doughy now.
Should I be drinking more water? I think that could be an answer since I know I don’t drink as much as I should. Would that help?
