    Iím a pussy? Quad injections

    On trt and usually inject subq to avoid poking so many holes in my muscles. But now I’m blasting 2-3 times per year. Using test/deca /mast so can’t subq. Surgery on both shoulders so can’t possibly do glute injections as I’m as inflexible as a fuggin statue. So my only options are delts and quads.

    But every time I shoot quads it hurts like balls. Tried 1/2 inch, 1 inch. Hurts going in and I almost always seem to hit a nerve/vain. And I sit there like a candy ass for like 10 mins before injecting. Am I an enormous pussy? I don’t mind getting in the ring and getting punched in the face for minutes at a time but when it comes to a quad injection my 3 year old is more of a man than me.

    Anyone else have this?

    Literally laughed out loud reading this. I’ve had labrum surgery on both shoulders and am like Frankenstein but still manage to hit my gluteus. Get exhausted doing it though and have broken of the top of a plunger and bent a needle in my ass (read a stupid article one time about ass fat being better at absorbing oils). As far as being a pussy, hell no you’re not. Takes a man to admit it and seek counsel. I don’t mind shoulders, don’t love quads. I find that if I look myself in the eyes in the mirror and tell myself to quit being a little bitch, it helps. It’s thats initial poke I don’t like. Once it breaks the skin, I’ll bury that fucker. Give it a a try. It’s a man’s game. You get in a cage, you can sure as shit pin delta, quads or whatever the fuck. Mind game. Just get your head right and get after it.

    Once you get consistent and it’s not virgin ground, it’ll quit hurting eventually. Stay the course. I’m sure there’s stickies, or google articles and YouTube videos or whatever else, but in the end, ya just gotta do it. Bleed a little, so what. PIP? It’ll go away. Get your head right

    I’ve had my best and worst shots in my quads. You have to find the sweet spot and it won’t hurt at all. Literally there are points that are pain free. On the other hand, I’ve also hit a nerve and had it hurt like a mofo, but much more rarely. In general it’s a good place for me.

    What about Lats and/ or Ventro mate?
    I can't inject in quads either, my legs just jump off and take a bus to miami...

    I had the same issue. The top outter portion of your quad is a big area and it's a tiny pin. Keep trying new places until you find some spots that work and remember them

    Was a sub-Q guy like yourself, but had to make the switch. Seeing that 1.5” needle disappear into your flesh can be a little tough (though NOT the sign of being a pussy, it’s called intelligence actually as it’s not something we naturally should be doing), but keep at it, it gets easier.

    Every so often I will nick a tiny nerve & it makes me jump.

    Generally where the pockets sit, almost dead center has been my sweet spot.

    Delts with a 5/8” are becoming my favorite. But, I’m missing most of my left RC, so my wife doesn’t mind pinning my right Delt for me. Funny thing she seems to think she has to divide the injection into smaller doses over multiple spots . . . . . .

    I'm an HRT'er and not injecting but with that said, I used to box and wrestle both at various times many, MANY years ago. Both back then and all the way to this day, needles almost make me pee my pants LOL! Ok, it isn't that bad but I don't like them. one. friggin. bit. I had zero problems stepping into the ring where I knew the other guy was going to hit me a lot, some harder than others. Bigger guys, better guys, whatever - BRING IT ON!!! But damn that little needle for blood work and I'm all flinchy.

    It HAS gotten better over the years and I know that I will likely be injecting myself but no, I don't think that makes you a vagina or chicken sh!t or anything like that.

    Technique helps too. I've had blood draw people that are all like Norman Bates, and others that are like 'well, we are done!' and I never felt a thing. Maybe improving technique will help in this case?

    Bro, u r not alone...
    I fucking hate injecting quads and have been doing it weekly for my mast prop injections and it sucks.
    The area is filled with veins and nerves and I'm nervous before I inject every time. Tbh though, it only hurt once and the was the first time and I could not walk for shit for 2 days then I went and had a legs day at the gym lol.
    I feel like the injection spot gets bruised for me almost every other time... I stopped last week and now just rotating between the glutes as I am nearly done this cycle

    I only do quad shots. I can touch my skin now with a needle and tell if I’m near a nerve. I do the top of my quads.

    I hated quad shots for the longest cause I always hit a nerve or vein every damn time. Then I tried injecting right outside where my pocket would end if I had jeans on and haven’t had a single issue since.

    This. Literally within the first millimeter of the needle going in I can tell if it's going to be good or bad. Anywhere in my body, generally. If it hurts going in, it's also going to bleed. Guess there are more nerves around blood vessels.

    You must be a pussy! LOL. Just kidding.

    Iím exactly the same way. Even with slin pins. Try injecting where your pant pockets are. I now do it all the time there. I also inject daily so I use slin pins.

    Quads only hurt the first 15 or 20 times, after that you'll be fine

    I love biceps, chest, and quads. Delts are hard for me unless is a small amount, <1cc, same for lats. Some oils take FOREVER to inject (25G 1"), holding still shooting delts or lats for 120 - 200 seconds is hard... chest is SOOOOooo easy. Glutes are nearly impossible for me to hold long enough for me to inject everything through such a small needle.

    Basically my TRT doses (.5cc) goes in delts and lats. My bigger runs go in quads, chest, and biceps.

    Has anyone ever seen a study on uptake/absorption rates per muscle group?

    Just remembered, one of my first quad injections, nicked a tiny nerve and pulled it out so quick the syringe slipped out of my hand.

    Swear to God, looked down - it stuck to the outside of my calve like a dart. I figured if I could laugh at that, Iíd be ok.

    Ventrogluteal injections are now the preferred method amongst many healthcare professionals. The tissue around your ventrogluteal site is very thick and far removed from any major blood vessels or nerves.
