    Smile what size canon

    I am preparing to start first cycle ever of 4oomg test cyp
    the needles and syringes i have ordered are 3ml and 22 gauge 1 1/2 needles does this sound right.
    how far should the needle go in (glute area), about an inch
    any tips on first inj, i mean mental prep as well as positioning.

    You will hate needles if you start with 22 gauge. Thats not a HUGE needle but it is a pretty good size for a first timer. I would try to get some 25 gauges.

    Pull the gear out with 22 gauges then switch the needles to 25 gauge. It will take a little longer to shoot, but it wont be that bad.

    Also you should probably go pretty close to all the way depending on your body fat.
    Some people can easily pass with only an inch. Other must go all the way.

    read lots of places about injecting but am unsure as the best way to get the needle in
    is gently throw it like a dart or stretch the skin and push gently

    Doing glutes with 22 G is fine,

    Just some people don't have the nerve to just shove it in there.

    Try it out and if you dont like it then go with a 25 G, it pretty much slides in pain free.

    And 1 inch is fine but make sure you go all the way in.

    ha ha... just stick a nail in you and see how that feels lol



    and the only bad thing about 25 gauge is it takes a little while to shoot, but at least its slow and steady and sometimes that can be beneficial lol

    I just started so my expirence is limited but I did my test with a 25. It takes a while to draw up but it will. I did mine in the quad area. Wasnt too bad, i was pretty nervous though at first. Spot was a little sore the next day but not too bad. Good luck 5.0

    draw with a 21 or 22 g and then switch needles... "carefully" it makes the process much quicker

    22-23g to draw and 25g 1” for delt and 25g 1.5” for glute….. just run the syringe under hot water from the faucet to make the oil easier to inject. Never had a problem!

    I have 22g,23g, and 25 g and I can tell you there is a huge difference between 22 and 25g personalyl I only use 25g now the only reason I had the bigger ones was for some thick winny shots.

    alot of people can use one inch on glutes others need to go a little deeper. Remeber you wanna get that pin deep in the belly of the muscle.
