    Looking for a new injection site.

    Ive been hitting glutes but due to scaring it is getting hard to push the needle in and inject. im thinking quads but ive heard some stories where guys can barley walk at first because of the pip and with my job i need to be walking around all day. when i first hit glutes i could barley walk and had to take ibuprofen for the pain used the excuse that i slipped on ice.

    My preffered spots

    For TRT amounts (1ml or less) I go shoulders and biceps.

    I preffer shoulder, but use the biceps too, as I do EOD injections.

    For cycle doses (over 1ml)
    I prefer quads exclusively, and also use shoulder and biceps as well.

    But pinning quads takes 3x as long to do as shoulder for me. That's why I save them for things that will be injected every 3 days

    There's always virgin muscle pain. You'll be over it in a few days. Go for the thighs, they're big muscle group.

    I've been hitting quads exclusively this cycle. Over 3cc's 3 times a week or almost 10cc total. Zero pip. Hit the area right where your hand would cover if you put it in your jean pocket. Top slightly to the outside. Poke around a little to find a spot that doesn't hurt on initial contact. Moving even 1/2 inch can make a big difference. I consider it a bit of an art but you get used to it. Occasionally I nick a nerve which feels weird. Seldom get much blood. I can push 3.2cc through a 1 inch 25 gauge pin in about 30-40 seconds.

    would the the pain be less with with less of an injection (.4cc with 25 gauge)? i just fear the pain i went through the first time i was literally about to call it quits first time was(1cc 23 gauge).

    Rotate glutes, delts, and lats for now that's 6 sites which is plenty. Later you can add in biceps and triceps as you get more advanced.

    Shouldn't need a 1.5" for anything. If ya gotta use that - you're too high on BF for roids anyway.

    2 Locations. I inject sitting down on the edge of chair:

    (1) Opposite side of pant pocket (top 1/3rd of the area)

    (2) 2-3" away from the kneeLooking for a new injection site.-couch.jpg

    Anywhere in between those 2 points I have no had success with.

    The quads didn't hurt much at all. Glutes hurt like hell the first couple of weeks. If you do quads, and I can only recommend outer quads because I haven't done inner, do it in the middle and all the way perpendicular to your body, not on top of the quad, or top-side. I found those places hurt like hell.

    Subcutaneous: The most I've done is .5mL. If I did more and felt it uncomfortable I'd break it up and shoot Sub-Q

    Stand up with your arms to your sides, shoulders back. The place your middle and ring figers touch is approximately where you want to inject. If your arms are like mine, the fingers should be touching halfway down your femur, on the side of the leg.

    Lmfao.. I would never pin my bi again.

    Lats are easy as fuck.

    I've been tempted to do forearms

    Also, OP. If you're lean enough. Slin pins are a life saver

    Never done Tri's or Lats, but everywhere else... And I hit pecs all the time, super easy to reach. My favorite are Delts and Quads.

    I have only done glutes for like 8 cycles, just started doing quads. The first shot was really painful, the second nearly the half as the first, and since than I don't even feel them.

    Only time I started running out of places to pin I was running a lot of high pip gear. I pin all over glutes, front delts, side delts, lats, bis upper and lower, tris side and back, quads rarely, pecks upper and lower, and I have sub q'd belly with suspensions which I do not recommend.

    Yes and I did it again anyway so I had 5 or six for many weeks. It is like it burns the fat and irritates it

    I would NOT stick a needle into my forearm there is a VERY high chance of fucking up your whole arm if you hit the wrong nerve. 1.5" pins are too long for site injection IMO I'd stick with 1" pins. Same with the side triceps head, major nerve runs down the arm and hitting it can leave you with permanent injury and you'd potentially need a surgery to fix it and have a big scar. Shoot Bostin Lloyd an email he'll tell you all about it lol.

    I'm not being dramatic here, just stressing my take on this. I'm very liberal with this shit and not opposed to trying somewhat risky things to accomplish my goals....BUT, when the risks FAR outweigh the benefits then it simply doesn't make sense anymore. There are certain places, IME & IMHO, that people should not stick a needle into due to the anatomy of the body and likelihood of complications.

    My two closest friends also swore by quad shots until my one buddy got a major complication after hitting a nerve in his INNER quad (ALWAYS stick to outer quads IMO based on what I've seen) everyone is different so surely itll be fine for some but I feel it's easier to just keep injections to places with minimal risk of complications.

    Also, the amount of oil you're injecting should be taken into account. I wouldn't put more than 3cc's in a big muscle (glute, lats) and no more that 1.5cc in a small muscle (side delt, bi's tri's) but this will vary depending on your size of course...
