    what if i injected into the wrong muscle in the quad?

    i injected into the middle of my quad. you know the right tear drop part of your right quad? when you flex? i just followed it up to the middle of my leg and shot it where i thaught there was the most muscle. is it hard to miss a muscle in your quad? i used a 1 1/2 inch needle , but left a 1/2 inch out. the outer part of my quad seems like there is not enoug muscle. ive looked at all the pics and stuff, but they arent real clear. any suggestions would help, i guess my quad is messed up.

    a friend of mine did the same thing and he still cant contract his quad. He said it felt dead. It's been about 2 months. I'm curious as to the answers on this question myself!

    you're not going to miss a muscle, but there are a lot of arteries, major veins, nerves, connective tissue that you don't want to inject through or into.

    quad is the best place to inject IMO because i can use 2 hands. pecs are great too, but may be tricking if you don't have thick pecs.

    hands can't keep up with brain, or brian is just too slow... either way it's a handicap.

    I posted some pics of this before, they were pretty clear, let me try and give u my explanation...even though i've never injected into the quad


    Anyways, if your sitting down, look straight down on your lap. Now draw a line, going straight from you knee cap to your hip. This is DIVIDING what you are looking DOWN at exactly in half!!! Okay, so now, you have an imaginary line, now half way on that line, go about three inches to your RIGHT (outter quad), and that's where you are injecting.

    when i inject quads it's more to the top instead of toward the side of my leg, almost in the middle.

    I thought you were supposed to inject on a slight angle, like my picture above shows. Is that wrong?

    Cool I'm with you, Terinox . . .

    The picture you post is exactly on target. I'm not sure what you meant about angle, as the needle should go straight in at a 90 degree angle. (I assume you were referring to position, but the one you showed was correct.)

    As I've described elsewhere, I use the "handbreadth" standard: Hold your hand, flat pointing down, with the fingertips at the knees. Note where your wrist sits on your leg. Then put your hand, again pointing downward, so that the wrist is on the pelvic crest (top of your pelvic bone) and note where your fingertips end. You can shoot anywhere your hand did not cover - between the two handbreadths. Inject in, or near, the side of the leg, never in the actual front of the leg.

    Eye_candy, that's the first I heard of the pocket idea - nice idea, and it seems to be right on.

    By the way, quad shots are the only ones that I do to myself - the two hand factor is important when it comes to injecting at the proper angle and aspiratuing the nsyringe. (When I do delts or glutes, I have someone else do the shot.) Dr. Evil is correct about the nerves - you have more nerve endings and veins near the quad than you do near the glutes or delts. If you feel like you're hitting a nerve (and you []iwill[/i] know when you hit a nerve), simply pull out and use a different spot. And use only a 25 g. 1" needle in the quads - if you're shooting oil-based solution, it will go in slower, but it will be easier to stick than a thicker needle.

    if your quads are defined enough you can use a 5/8 in pin too. as far as injecting into the wrong muscle not really sure you can it does all end up going to the same place... altho if you injuect into one muscle on one quad makes ure to use the same on the other quad for aesthetic reasons.

    TNT, yes I meant the angle of injection, not the angle of the needle itself
