    ^^Exactly.

    Depends on the amount of adipose tissue between the skin and muscle. For a bruce lee look a like, 1". For someone Trey Brewer's level, well you can guess the rest.

    when I use 1.5" i always just hold back the last half inch on my quads or smaller muscle... i have low bf so i feel like it penetrates too much... on my glute where ive got more cushion--i go all the way in.

    KIM even if the needle doesn't reach IM, it will still work just as efficiently.
