Small bumps on left forearm, doing more workout, bumps appear doing workout. What could be this?

Hi, I have been working out for a little more than a month now and I have noticed that I have three small bumps on my left forearm. They only appear during and some time after I've been lifting. However, these bumps do not appear when I am flexing outside of the gym. The bumps are scattered around my left forearm. Also, my right forearm does not have these bumps and my right forearm is stronger than my left forearm.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
It sounds like subcutaneous lesion which is usually seen after the exercise because muscle is tense and such lesions are more visible then. So it can be lipoma,fibroma or some other benign tumour as well as varicose vein. Whatever it is if it doesnt cause any problems you can ignore it but if you experience some symptoms you can surgically remove it. WIsh you good health.
