Depends what you want to get veiny for.
Firstly, obviously you have to be lean. Also, if you are depleted, you won't have that great vascularity compared to when you are carbed.

Niacin is shit. It will make you hot and itchy and turn your skin red.
Do a Search on this board for Synthelator. That will make your veins stand out more than anything out there. Within 1 hour of taking it you will be like an anatomy chart and you won't feel itchy, etc, just great.

I hear drink a little wine before a show helps. And there is non-flush Niacin that doesnt have those sides.

Insulin has made me alot more vascular. When carb/insulin loading before show makes you so vascular but as the others have said you need to be lean already .

Hi Raybravo there may be an article in the articles forum about it otherwise just do search on insulin posts I have made . I take my insulin when dieting exactly same way as when bulking so try search on any insulin posts.

Ray I continued it while dieting and it worked fine. Even though I was still taking in 250grams of simple carbs and 150 grams of whey isolate in the 2.5 hours after taking 10IUs of Hum R.

Seemed to help me hold on to muscle BUT this is just a guess.

I have always heard that EQ was good for getting veiny. I have not had so much luck with it though. I have not gone over 400 mg though.

Training for vascularity

Other answers are all good. To increase the size of the surface (or any) veins, they have to be stimulated to carry a higher capacity of blood. Supply this stimulus consistently (like lifting stimulates muscle cells to grow), and the veins will become larger.

The best way to do this IMO is by lifting w/ high enough volume / short enough rest interval / w/ using drop sets, etc. that gives you a massive pump and fills the veins up during training. The body (veins) will adapt to this consistent requirement to carry much blood and increase the diameter of the veins, making you more vascular. IF this is not how you train best for gains, you could add some high reps days in now and then for variety, or finish your workouts / bodyparts w/ 1 or 2 high rep sets.

Biggest thing, of course is still leanness, though, without a doubt. One reason (aside from a belief in spot-reduction) that BB'ers have oftentimes gone to lower loads and higher reps / more sets in the weeks before a show might be to maximize this vascular adapation. Having a larger capacity in your (Sub-q) veins means a more effective system for circulating fluids, which might just make it more difficult to hold water under the skin...

if u try to increase volume , decrease rest time , drop sets etc during cutting , all ive had is muscle loss . when i take it easy and take my time to cut and allow the cardio to do the work of strippin off the fat , ive kept most of my muscle . so although what u say might be true to bring out vascularity , it might not be the best way to preserve muscle.
