The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Vascularity, the how's and why's...discussion

    I was just thinking about vascularity and how it changes from person to person. I myself am higher bodyfat so I'm not vascular at all really, but when I start to lean out I can start to see my veins in my arms for example, although faintly.
    Its just my predisposition to carry bodyfat in my upper front arms I guess. Anyway my question is: Is bodyfat level the #1 factor in a person's vascularity? I'm not talking about size of veins, just visibility. Or the bigger the muscle tissue the more it pushes veins to the surface of the skin.
    I know a guy at work who is about 130lbs and so low in bodyfat his veins pop out everywhere. Although his nickname is Bones so he's not muscular at all. What are your thoughts on vascularity? Muscle mass? or low, low bodyfat levels more an influence?

    If you can't knock out a dozen or so chins, your either too fat or too weak, take your pick...

    bodyfat%is a really important factor for vascularity also don't forget that the thickness of skin will differ from a person to another.I don't think muscles could pop your veins out if you don't have the factors I mentioned.And I've seen people like Bones alot If you don't beleive me get a BB mag and watch those giants without oil and b4 they train.

    Actually fat is very vascular. That is one reason why larger people have heart problems, because as you get fatter that tissue needs to be supplied with blood as well.
