    Do steroids make your veins bigger?
    Just wondering why really big (and lean) gusy have such huge veins - do we all have the same size veins, that just come out when we are shredded or do steroids (or size in general) dictate the size of our veins?

    I would imagine most of it is genetics...but probably the increase in muscle mass and decrease in fat mass pushes them to the surface a bit more or at least creates that illusion. Increase in blood flow also would streetch the vein itself no?

    I would imagine so, just as it does a muscle...

    More muscle requires more blood, so blood volume goes up especially on gear.

    But what if your genetics give you fuel lines for the 150? Is this the guy that's bound for a heart attack?

    I would suppose so, but the veins are elastic. Meaning they become bigger as needed. Probably.

    Paul Dillet has some freaky veins in his chest and delts. I've never seen chest veins like that before.

    Unfortunately those are varicose veins. Never seen a fat chick?

    Your body is able to adjust, people aren't born with those huge rope like veins otherwise they'd look kinda fucked up when they were a buck fifty.

    You'll remember they told Matarazzo if he hadn't had the vein structure he developed he would have been dead because some of his arteries were damn near 100% shut.

    Big veins take away from a physique IMO. Picture Paul Dillet with a couple veins in his arms, a few in his legs, and that it. I bet you would be more impressed with his physique. I don't see that big deal with people that want large veins. They look horrible!

    I think vascularity complements big muscle size, making one look ripped up and lean. My vascularity gets pointed out a lot in the gym - a lot of the guys want it. Don't get any from the girls though. lol.

    As men we love the vascularity, but for some reason women will never understand it and don't seem to be huge fans.

    I love Mudge's analogy!

    Test and eq seem to increase rbc count. EQ relly does, and some folks worry about being on it for too long because of making their heart pump molassas. I know that running test e/eq/tren e....I get more vascular than any other time. I'm pretty vascular as it is, but the veins in my chest/delts/tris really pop on that stack. Hell, even the veins that cross my shins pop out while just standing around on that stack.

    You like Dillet's veins?

    I think they look like crap. Some look good, but too many looks horrible. I would never want to have veins popping out all over my chest like that.

    If I could be the same size and bf% with Dillet type veins, or not... I would get with the latter.

    I agree Easto I mean a nice Bicep vein and some veins in the legs and forearms are attractive but when your all fuckin veiny and lumpy it just doesnt look good IMO.

    Veins are good but Dilletts are extreme...at least he cuts down on the odds of hitting a vein when he injects!
