    Exclamation Wrong guage needles? Help!?

    I just started my first cycle, injecting 250mg of testosterone cypionate once a week. After my 4th week and 4th injection, I realized that I used a 25 guage needle for my 2nd and 3rd injection, and possibly my first as well. I read that a 22 guage needle is required for oil based steroids ; does this mean that my previous 25 guage injections were a total waste? If so, should I consider my 4th week as my 1st week and continue on for 10 more weeks? Help!?

    Also how much cardio should I be doing? I'm 6'2, 190 lbs, 8.5% bodyfat, but I'm hardly ripped or anything.

    Your help is very much appreciated,
    -LionHeart

    hey mate,

    you should have a look at www.spotinjections.com

    25g /1inch is ideal for quads/glutes but can be used anywhere

    25g 5/8 inch is ideal for triceps/delts/biceps

    where you injecting?

    Your fine. 23 gauge or 25 are both preferred. A little slower to inject with the 25's but that also helps make you less sore from the injection. I am not up for 22's - too big for me but some people are fine with them. I draw from the vial with 20g so it goes into the syringe fast, then switch needles to a 25g for injection.

    Also scar tissue is slower to build up with the 23's and 25's
