Piercing the skin on injections!!!
okay, lately injecting my glutes has been very difficult, i can't pierce the skin easily and it ends up hurting, Does anyone have any suggestions to make the syringe tip slide in easily???? i use a brand new tip everytime, i throw away the tip I use to suck up the sustanon .

Hey bro, I have the same problem. I think I have leather ass! Try and let a little juice roll down the needle for lube. The other thing to try is to just push a little harder during the puncture.

IT's scar tissue build up.... try other sites on your body.

Yup, scar tissue for sure. Don't hit the same spot more than once a week, start incorperating new sites.

Spot injections is the key. What size needle are you using?

scar tissue for sure. i combated this by rotating my injection points everyday for prop, from legs to glutes to delts ! and when in legs, inject in different area

One thing I have always been told, and always do, is to inject with the bevel up on the needle...so you should be able to see the bevel when it goes in.

Try rotating your sites depending on how often you inject. I always inject in the A.M. right after a hot shower. The skin is more permeable and it makes for an easier injection. Also try and pull your skin tight so there will less resistance. If your still having some problems I sometimes give the syringe a little twist/turn so the bevel of the needle acts sort of like a screw and it'll penetrate a little easier. Good luck.

I know I don't have scar tissue. I'm doing my first cycle now and I'm getting ready to go on week 3. Can scar tissue even build up that fast?

Yes if you don't rotate sites often and are doing frequent injections.
