    I've seen a few guys take niacin (sp?), makes them super red.

    I've never tried it, but I heard it works for some. Do a search, there was a few threads about it a while ago.

    what to get vascular

    you know i found it awkward i don't drink anymore someone suggested redwine, i am no spring chicken so i am probably going to have to take heart drugs before to long anyway, so they were out of the question, so ihad a snickers bar but had it like fifteen minutes before when thirty would have been better. i got really vascular after pre judging, then again i had to walk by the fitness girls that probably helped too. come to think of it my wife saw me while i was vascular and when we got home she straight away gave me a couple of snickers bar. ijust fell to sleep. good luck mate

    niacin, nicatimic acid, nicatinamide... all are very similar. I personally use niacin spray before I go onstage.. the pill make me retain water in all the wrong places... you can buy the spray very cheaply at bodybuilding.com... it's called Hot Stuff and it's made by pro tan. You only need a lil' bit though... do not over do it with this stuff.

    I like to use the protan brand vasodiolator spray along with some red wine and plenty of sugars before pumping up! Yes, I heard niacin works too but I don't like that flushing effect......best of luck!

    Niacin really makes my skin itch!!! I used hot stuff... It is hot but it doesn't HURT. I think he was being a little over dramatic. It does work for bringing out vascularity. It also seems to deepen your tan/dye, well it did for me.

    hot stuff is nice b/c you can apply it area specifically. Nicacin flushes your whole body... I felt like I had a sun burn for 3 hours and I felt like complete ****. If you are going to use the pills make sure you test it out before you get onstage to see how you react to it.

    I agree ... I tested just half a niacin pill out a few weeks pre comp and OMG it was horrible. I was in the gym turning beat red and itching. Never again!

    Just have some sugary carbs and give it a few hours. I also took an double NO drink an hour before stage.
    Buy the dip!

    Use SuperPump

    I had the same question and my friend recommended SuperPump. This has multiple advantages including vasodilation, in which vessels dilate and the flow of blood is increased due to a decrease in vascular resistance; causing your veins to pop out.

    Go to gnc and type in superpump
