    Pin Size For Delts

    im currently 1 week into my test E cycle. the lady at the pharmacy screwed up and gave me 5/8 inch instead of 1 and a half like i asked for. originally i was gonna do my glutes, but now i was forced to do my delts. very easy let me tell you. the whole fear of pins for me was a bunch of hype. now i love pokin my arms. anyways, im gonna use the 5/8 for tonight and then do you guys think i should switch to 1 inch cus i get payed on friday and funds ran REALLY short for me. or should i stick to 5/8. i just dont wanna loose anything from this cycle, im guessing the deeper the better. any thoughts?

    No, just bury the 5/8", you could use it for Quads too if you'd like. But yes a 1" would be better IMO. It also depends on how a few other things, like how big you are, how much BF, stuff like that.

    depends on how big your delts are and BF% but 5/8 will work just 1inch would be better. I use 1in on delts and 1.5 on quads and glutes. thats all i shoot

    well, im not sure how much BF % but i know its not too much. the only place im laggin really is in my stomach area. (got real lazy and am starting to cut there again) arms are pretty much no fat at all. not too big, bout 180 solid at 5/8. i got up to 185 on creatine but i lost 10 lbs of water weight.
