    First Pin question

    So yesterday I used my first pin of 1ml test-e in my quad. Not a drop of blood or any real pain during the injection. I warmed the vial and even used a heating pad on my leg afterwards. This morning I wake up and and my leg feels like I a mean charlie horse. No lumps or redness or swelling just that charlie horse pain. Is this normal?

    ^yup. I wouldn't be pining quads as a rookie. Stick to delts and glutes. Too many nerves in the quad and veins to easy to knick

    This is normal. Are you using ugl grade gear? Couple of things could have happened: your hand could have been a bit shaky/injection technique, it's virgin muscle, experiencing pip.....post injection pain caused by a high BA count in the compound. There are others but these are the most common, keep an eye on it to see if it gets worse.

    Ok I for some reason thought the quads would be easiest. I will switch to the glutes.

    I am using Balkan Labs. I pinned tuesday and today there is less pain and still no redness or it is not swollen. So that seems good.

    ^^ for me also, but there is a way... Most try the tear drop first(no Bueno), I like outer and about 7" down from top of hip bone... I've had a few times I had to re pin, but I can usually tell w/in the first 1/4" or less up fits a no go....

    Delts leave little room for error, imo... Glutes(upper outer quadrant), tris(where long head and short head come together - top of horshue(sp), we have a video as well on proper pinning techniques and sites... Just put it in the search engine...
