Stretch Marks and Chaffing
I'm not a big guy by any means and my gains come slow as an ectomorph. I'm 6'-1" and my weight is usually around 200-210. I'm struggling with stretch marks where my bicep, chest and shoulders meet. Also getting stretch marks and chaffing bad on my inner/upper thighs.

Using Palmers stretch mark lotion and it helps a bit. Any other tips?

not on anything like that. Only protein and Pre/Post Jym. Creatine HCL on off days and multivitamin. Not in a big calorie surplus either.

re: Stretch Marks and Chaffing
For one, based on your body dimensions I wouldn’t describe you as an ectomorph. Also, those stretch mark areas are very common with muscle gains and not a big deal. Wear them like a badge of pride rather than getting worked up over it.

Those body dimensions started at 6-1 and 130 pounds 12 years ago. It's been a long road to get to 210.

I don't get worked up over them they are just painful and looking for tips to help avoid them.

Can you describe the pain? I’m honestly curious because I had similar stretch marks to what you are describing when I started gaining size a long time ago and it wasn’t something where I felt pain

Almost like an itch you cant scratch to make go away. Not like I'm doubled over agonizing obviously but it's a nuisance. If there's a better way to take care of my skin I'll do it cause I can feel it when a new mark is coming in.
