No Shame Game

No Shame Game

Posted by Mike Chisnall on Oct 30, 2021


There is no shame in wanting to look your best.

For yourself.
For Judges.

For…. Um.. those who you may want to… like romantically. Ha!

So let’s look into one of the ways we can show our muscles off, Vascularity!

No one can deny the intimidating and impressive visual effect of vascularity. So, what is it? Can I make myself look for like that… or should I?! The truth is that there are two immediate reasons why having pronounced veins is a sign that you are in better shape than others. Firstly, it is a visual indicator that your muscles require more blood to fuel them than those without enhanced vascularity, implying that you are stronger. Secondly, it is a sure-fire way to see how low your body fat percentage is; your veins will only pop if the layers of fat under your skin are low enough to let them show.

So how do I get my veins to pop?! There are some amazing products that help the key areas of our body we need to look after to become more vascular. However, they are all based around some amazingly simple steps that we are already familiar with…

Lose Fat 

I know this sounds obvious. As I said before, everyone has a different body type. Some people naturally have more vascularity, so if you are not one of them then you need to use every facet you have to your advantage. The less fat you have under your skin, the more your veins will pop… so lose the fat!

Build Muscle

Again, this is an obvious one, but bigger muscles demand a higher blood flow. That’s a simple fact. There are two parts to this step. Yes, we want to build muscle mass in general, but we MUST go after the PUMP! If you are not familiar with the term, we are talking about ending your session with high-intensity, controlled lifts with short rest in between sets. By shifting your focus to building muscle and achieving the pump, your veins will adapt to higher blood flow to your newly built muscle mass.

Don’t Skip Cardio

There are countless reasons not to skip cardio day. Additionally, if you’re looking for higher vascularity then keeping it in your routine is a MUST. Cardio will obviously help keep your caloric deficit high and keep the fat off. Consistent cardio will increase your capillary density and ultimately increase the blood flow to your muscles.

Now that we know more about vascularity, there are a few specific supplements and ingredients that will help your vascularity improve. This will come as a result of increased blood flow, relaxing/widening blood vessels, and improved circulation by having a direct effect on your Nitric Oxide levels in your body.  By relaxing your blood vessels and arteries, the following SUPPs will make your blood flow more effective for the ‘Pump’.

Hype Reloaded by Blackstone Labs

One of the most effective ways to boost nitric oxide levels and get that look we want is with Hype Reloaded by Blackstone Labs. Packing a powerful PUMP punch with key ingredients like Citrulline Malate and Horney Goat weed which both have an efficacy level through the roof on vascularity!

Noxygen Liquid Caps by Purus Labs

Noxygen delivers that one-two punch that really amplifies vascularity. Punch one is Sodium Nitrate and punch two is Hydromax Glycerol! This combo helps relax your veins so your body can respond by pumping more oxygen/blood through your veins. This helps create that epic vascularity that impresses. It also helps boost pumps which no one is going to say no to.

Seismic Surge by Hard Rock Supplements

Another excellent choice is Seismic Surge by Hard Rock Supplements. As well as being packed with everything your veins want, this PWO also contains L-Arginine Alphaketoglutarate and Agmatine Sulfate that high dose feed your muscles while you work out. This PWO is called the 6th gear for a reason.

Amentoflavone XT by Serious Nutrition Solutions

Amentoflavone from SNS is another great supp that delivers maximum pumps and supercharged vascularity! The miracle worker is Selaginella Tamariscina. 200mgs helps deliver fat loss, increased pumps, insane vascularity, and for the dudes.. it helps with your uh… manhood.

Vascularity can be achieved! Your genetics only play a role in your starting point. Following all of these simple steps is shown to help increase the size and clarity of your vascularity.

With the right SUPPs and the proper training, you can transform your body into a vascular machine!

And remember, there is NO SHAME IN THAT GAME!
