If you like the look of big and bold veins running wild and ramping down your arms when you’re just chilling, you’ll probably love this article, because today you’re gonna find three fundamental things that will make your veins to show.
- Reduce body fat
Veins are like abs, everybody’s got them, but showing them? That’s a different story.
You need to drop some fat in order to get your veins closer to the skin, that means you have to put yourself into a slight deficit.
Think of it like this:
- You’ve got skin.
- Underneath your skin, you have a layer of fat.
- Under that, you have veins.
- And underneath, you have muscle.
So in order to get veins closer to the skin, not just that you have to increase your muscle size, but first you have to drop that fat layer in between.
2. Have an optimal balance between volume and intensity of training
This thing goes hand in hand with the first one, because when you’re in a calorie deficit, your body will tend to destroy muscle tissue rather then lose fat.
You don’t want it! You want to build muscle, to push your veins closer to the skin! But in order to do that, you need to force them to build muscle while losing fat or in case of intermediates and advanced, to keep muscle tissue, as much as possible.
The amino acid that is responsible to increase vascularity is called Arginine.
Arginine is a non essential amino acid that boost nitric oxide level during workout and increase energy. Nitric oxide relaxes and widens blood vessels, which means more blood can flow through it and that means more oxygen, more nutrients, more fluid, resulting into a bigger and more visible vascularity.
