Hi,

I do have a problem with skin cracks! :shock: If I do too much weight my skin cracks so I lowered the weights and increased the repetitions to 25!

What do you think of that? It's kind of funny: If I train too hard with too much weight I explode like Hulk...strange thing... :?

I wish i had this problem!
As long as you keep improving, it's good. Up the reps, the weight, or both. If you grow too fast ( :shock: ) eat or train less :?

eat less? No way! I love food....but do you think 25 reps are alright or more?

If you eat excess calories, you will grow. How you train is what determines where you grow - muscles or fat ;)
When you love to eat and don't want to grow, train with very high reps (at least 25) to build endurance. You could also do very low (no more than 3) to focus on strength, but that will also grow muscles, but probably less than doing 6-12 reps.
Add cardio or other activities to stay lean (and small). In fact, do the opposite of what Jonathan does :lol:

The problem is that I get muscles - for example I get these skin cracks at my biceps or the back but not like some pregnant woman at the belly or something...

hmmm, I really want to grow so that is my problem - I want to become as big as it gets but I really don't know if i can achieve this if I get ugly skin cracks. I wondered if bodybuilders like Arnold Schwarzengger had these kind of problems and if you look closely at his arms and shoulders you can see some huge skin cracks - dunno, maybe it's alright and nobody will notice...

I don't think skin cracks are ugly.
In fact, i love them :D (on me, but they don't deter me on women, either ;) )

I have not many, but i'm proud of those i have 8)

Skin cracks is called stretch marks in english. Cocoa butter can be used to try to stop them but they are largely genetic. I don't get them but I think they'd be kind of cool to have.
