  • Something cool just happend for me......

    So I have been doing leangains now for six weeks. My body fat when I started was 29.10 % when I measured this week, I was at 26.30 %. I have lost 15 pounds of fat in that six weeks.

    Anyway, I was just doing my work out today, and was finishing with a set of dumbell concentration curls when I looked down and saw a vein poking out on my forearm. Vein pop, the first time in my life. How cool is that for this fat boy...... Leangains is working.
    I Kettlebell therefore I am.

            Wow, LG really works for you! COOLness!

            I did not know that veins popping is a measure of a good lifting session, lol. I thought it was useful for going to do a blood test - I always do it after lifting now. Before it took nurses 2-3 tries to locate a vein. And if you ever had a needle wandering the inside of your elbow for any significant amount of time... yeah.

              I know all about that... I have deep veins. One time it took 5, yes, 5 people to get some blood. BTW, never ever let the Doctor try...... I usually say, "Why not use a butterfly needle and take it from the back of the hand" Just maybe, when I reach my goal of 15% BF, it will no longer be a problem.

                You would get to your goal BF% faster if you pledged allegiance to the University of Alabama.

                Just sayin'.

                  In my experience it is not BF, it is the amount of blood-flow through the vein. Basically, I was advised by a senior nurse once to drink a lot of water before going to do a test, but lifting seem to be super-effective in bringing them up. I was actually worried about it, after my husband pointed it out a few months back. I hope it doesn't have any negative side attached to it, like high blood pressure or something? It's just from lifting?

                    I was also amazed at how many veins I have as my fat disappeared. My hands look like tree roots, and now I'm getting those hoses on top of my biceps!

                      Really? Do I have to go to Tuscaloosa to do this, or can I just pretend to say it in my head?
