    Recently, I’ve been working out a lot, maybe overdoing a little and have decided to take a little break and hit them gym just twice a week.

    I noticed after a workout, I would look in the mirror and the veins on my head were highly visible and prominent.

    The whole point of me working out was to get in shape and look better. I don’t want to see veins popping on my face ... after a good sleep, they have calmed down, but it’s not good.

    Anyone ever have this?

    Ooph, bro, that's definitely not normal. Could you get it checked out by a doctor?

    If you get lower BF% then you will get veins at places depending on how your body was formed.

    Some people get leaner and veins show in their faces. Perfectly normal.

    Just to be on the safe side, test your blood pressure a couple times over the next dew days. Other than that, god blessed you with cock veins...on your face

    So, you’re saying that if I want to get lower BF, I'm going to just have to get used to veins on my face?

    I don’t want face veins ... they look gross.

    I may have to reconsider this whole low BF thing.

    My face has gone all skinny, too. I may have to re-increase my fat percentage!

    Maybe this just ain’t for me.

    The writing is on the wall. I think I am ...

    Just gonna have to go through the 5 stages of grief and accept it.

    I wanted lower BF to look better, but If I look worse, it kind of defeats the objective.

    That's actually normal. And women definitely think it's sexy.

    Needles will collapse a vein. Have you considered heroin?

    Just keep cutting, you can bulk up after you get lean

    Really? I think it looks gross. That said, I am a little squeamish when it comes to blood, needles, veins etc.

    I mean, I want to rehabilitate the strength in my arm (I broke my right humerus years ago and never completely rehabbed it), so I think I will continue going to the gym twice a week.

    I think I might just eat more food to keep my face looking a little fatter.

    There's nothing serious about veins popping up although it may be a sign of stress but there's no negative correlation when it comes to working out. Trust me bro, get lean first then bulk up. Ask your PT and he'll tell you the same thing.
