    i have used 5/8 on my thigh and they seemed to work fine... kind of depends on how much fat you have, but since you say you are pretty lean, you should be fine.

    bro if you arent carrying much fat 5/8ths would be fine for quads, i have used them everywhere but glutes, with no problems

    I would use a 1 inch needle. Just to be sure that your going far enough into the quad muscle. You should be fine if you are pretty lean

    exactely.... by not getting the opil deep enough into the muscle, u risk getting an abcess... those are not fun.... trust me i speak from experience. got a nice 6 1/2 in scar from getting them taken out on my quad
