    How far do you push it in?

    Hi Guys

    Firstly the title of this thread was made with a smile on my face, left open for Lovbyts to leave some outrageous comments lol..

    Anyway more serious, I went to get my bloods done yesterday and a great 30 mins conversation with the guy about AAS. At the end of the meeting I stocked up on needles etc and he asked what sizes I had been using on which site so I said blues for all site injections (23Gx1 1/4'') and he said you are using these on delts, ouch.. Anyway I told him that I push the needle all the way in when injecting and he said I shouldn't be doing this on delts as it can cause serious damage, glutes are fine but no delts..

    This is the way I have always done it, question is am I doing it wrong? how far do you put the needle in when injecting?

    Thanks for reading guys and I look forward to your answers..

    I'm not sure about damage, but that is considered far on for delts. Technically, it should be just far enough to thoroughly penetrate the muscle belly. Since delts don't have significant subcutaneous fat, 3/4 of an inch is more than enough.

    ^^^ agreed! I use 23g 1" but also don't go in all the way... You start to feel it penetrate the muscle w/more experience...

    Insulin pins work great if you're shooting 3mL or less per day. Either backload or just be patient when drawing. I do think that sticking yourself repeatedly with a 23g can potentially cause scartissue.

    As long as your rotating between 6-7 sites... This(scar tissue) should be at a minimum... In my experience anyway...

    Although I could easily pin w/something smaller in gauge I've always liked 23-25g 1" except for traps/bis/chest.... Just my .02
