Stretch marks on skin

Postby repo » Nov 16, 2006 20:42

3 years ago I started to stretch my chest/arms. I thought it would help with recovery from weight lifting (bench press etc.). Over the course of a 2 years I went from 185 lbs to 210 lbs, but I noticed a problem! I have big ugly strecth mark scars on the front/back of my armpits and down my biceps. They are still visable after years. I don't beleive my arms increased in size that rapidly to cause it, so I wonder if the stretching could have damaged my skin?

The exercises I did were:

Stick behind neck/back with arms straight (chest/bicep stretch)

Grasp hands together behind back (tricep stretch)

Now I only stretch my legs because I have a fear of making my arms worse.

No. Possible causes include your bodybuilding routine/diet, obesity or rapid weight gain or loss. I would strongly suggest speaking to a dermatologist.

As "notsoflex" said in the post immediately preceding yours, "I would strongly suggest speaking to a dermatologist."

It usually depends. We get stretch marks sometimes because of our yo yo diet plus our lack of exercise after staying fit.

In this case you can try about the Dermabrasion, chemical peels, or laser surgery can be used to address unwanted stretch marks.
