    Stretch marks?

    This might sound like an odd question, but yesterday after my workout, I did a few flexes in the mirror and noticed something I hadn't noticed before: stretch marks between the deltoid and pectoral area for both arms. Is that normal?

      Yep, this is normal. Any time you gain weight, you'll get some stretch marks whether that weight is from muscle or from fat. Skin, after all, is and organ designed to adjust to the size of your body and stretch marks are just a visible display of that change.

      There are some ways to reduce the issue of stretch marks by making sure you drink enough water and applying different kinds of lotions and oils (several work), but these methods aren't necessarily going to stop you from developing stretch marks entirely.

      Honestly? I wouldn't be too worried about them, especially as they likely only show that you're making some pretty decent gains.
