Vascularity, in bodybuilding, is the condition of having prominent, visible veins.
Vascularity is enhanced by extremely low body fat, low retained water, high blood pressure and muscle engorgement. Some bodybuilders use topical vasodilators to increase blood flow to the surface skin as well. Vascularity is a highly sought after aesthetic for many male bodybuilders, but less so for female bodybuilders where the target aesthetic is relatively more towards aesthetic symmetry than extreme development.
