    I can relate. I used to love my stretch marks because they let me know I was growing. Now they're kind of unsightly. I have a group of them that extend for about 8-10inches along my arm and chest.

    I'd start using cocoa butter immediately if I were you.

    ^ You were probably a fatty.
    Peeps with higher bf% don't get them as much.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    I got them when I was a fatty and getting fatter. Now they have shrunk and are all wrinkly. I'm hoping to stretch them out a bit with muscle this time... So far so good.

    Dude... Trust me, you don't want stretch marks... Get big, but don't hope for stretch marks...
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Same, I went from 170->245 last year and got no stretch marks. I'm a consistent 225lbs now and bulking and I don't have a stretch mark to my name. I was always a skinny kid growing up, I think I just have naturally oil prone skin which has aided in retaining moisture and avoiding stetch marks as I grow. I'm happy with or without em' tho, as long as I'm big!

    I personally would be jacked up if i got stretch marks. It would be a reminder to me that all the hard work paid off and that I'm actually getting bigger.

    I'm already coated in stretch marks from being a fatty, would love some new ones for the muscles to go over the ol wrinkly ones.

    Hey, it's one of the first truly tangible signs that you're making good gains.

    Mixed blessing. Kinda like your first car payment on new car.

    Kinda.

    I'd rather not have them. Why would I want cosmetic flaws for all the cosmetic gains? Makes not sense, but sometimes it's a catch .22.

    lol good analogy belial. i was same way; got really excited when i got them around my groin/top of quad from squats....but now they are kind of gross.

    i feel bad for you guys that get them where other people/babes can see them cause only other hard lifters will appreciate them.

    OH NOES! Marks that prove I got bigger fast and made good progress!
    I'd wear mine proudly, but a display would get me arrested for public indecency, and I don't want to have to be a registered sex offender.

    Besides, We don't need flawless skin. That's for girls....who happen to like scars and such. Stretch on, skin.

    Fat people get stretchmarks, they're nothing to be proud of.
