Hello, i got problem with my skin. Is it possible that i got like small scars at some places on my back and shoulders because of workout?From what i have heard its because my muscles are growing and my skin can not keep up with it. Is it true?
If anybody has this problem, do you know how to reduce or make them not so visible.

I think you're referring to stretch marks, which are micro tears in the skin. Every bodybuilder gets them, but they fade over time and tanning hides them pretty well.

Yeah bro they are stretch marks, I got some when I first started working out around my bicep shoulder area. They make some lotions that will help deal with this, im pretty sure.

Yo, i have stretch marks too.
I got them on my inner biceps near my armpit.
A mate of mine gotten really bad ones on the armpit towards the back shoulder. He said good dieting got rid of them for him.
Blames it on fatty food.
