Like I said, any man with almost any kind of muscles has them. Lean, muscular bodies have side effects. That's one of them. At least they don't have to prick us twenty times. My nurses are overjoyed they got an easy one for a change. You also don't hear them complaining about getting your weight under control.

That Ronnie guy on page 3--what percent body fat do you think he had there? Will most any guy at that body fat percentage be that veiny, or is it a result of being so muscular?

*Nobody* walks around at that level of body fat. It is incredibly demanding to be that lean and those smiles? Fake. They are so miserable at that point: starving, dehydrated, etc. People not in competition have no reason to be that lean and never will be.

Ha, very-very little. Most guys like me are just in the forearms and wrists or hands. When you have it in the shoulder you have to be like him. For the record I can put 375 up once. Only once, that's all I can do. lol Repetition at that amount takes hard work. And yeah, you would get veins really popping if you could do a set of twenty of those.

To take those pics, do bodybuilders lift a few first? I know muscles pop a bit after weightlifting; I tend to grope the manliness after my husband does his bench presses.

I don’t know any bodybuilders so I don't know. I've seen some televised contests where they pose and stuff. Is everybody in the back, pumping iron so their muscles pop?

I would certainly guess. Not to mention grunting and flexing in front of the mirror first! lol

I love this look. I'm trying to get these veins on my neck. The cold forces me to hide my bulgy bad boys on my pythons with a jacket. If I get on my neck, even a turtle sweater can't hide them. Once I get those, I wanna get them on my jawbone. Some dudes grow a thin beard to make their jawbone appear stronger...I want veins!

I don't want that! lol I just don't want to be a p*ssy when it comes my turn to move something really heavy! lol Three of us moved a large vault a few weeks ago. It went about 1200. It was enough to crack the linoleum where the dolly wheel rolled.

Sorry to be so blunt about, but that kind of logic is extremely flawed. It ranks right up there with people who think every guy who drives a nice car is compensating for a small dick. I'm not saying it's the case here, but those type of attitudes are usually born out of jealousy.

Ones who compete in body building.
Since I'm a proud owner of a vagina, I'm going to go out on a limb and say "not jealous".

I'm not uninformed. I simply stated what *my* experience was in *my* life with the people *I* know who are serious athletes.
