    Quad Injections

    So I have recently started doing quad injections along with my delt/glute injections to rotate more areas for rest/scar tissue purposes. This is my second time injecting into my quads. I went upper, outer. About halfway point between my knee and hip. After my first time doing so, I had some immense pain, specifically in my right quad, which I figured was do to virgin muscle. Just before the next round of quad shot, everything was at 100% again (roughly 5 days later). This time around, both legs hurt which I suspected was because it is still a newer muscle group I have started doing this in. However, this time I have some swelling on both quads, and some redness showing at both injection sites. It’s only slightly warm, not at all hot at the injection sites. This was 2.5 says ago that these injections happened. I did check my temperature, and it was 99.9, however I’m also currently sick so I don’t know if the slightly elevated temp is due to my cold or due to the injection. Yesterday at work, my upper legs to the top of my knees was definitely somewhat swollen. It hurts to try and squat, walk around etc. it is significantly better, I have been taking hot showers and lightly nassaging the area, and have kept my legs elevated when off of my feet. I also did leg day immediately after the injection, as I have done even with the first time I injected quads. Any idea if I should be worried?

    I wouldn't be worried. If you continue to have issues then you could reevaluate

    I would be injecting higher up, where your pant pocket would be. The muscle is deepest there with less nerve endings compared to mid quad.

    not commenting about being worried but....

    I inject where the bottom of the front pocket of jeans would be.

    Quads are actually my favorite with glutes being next.

    I hit up higher. Closer to wear the pocket starts. I can barely feel the pin there and no pip

    Hey Dog,

    are you suggesting that the injection site should be more towards the front of the quad, or to the outside? Also, I believe that GearHeaded has stated in a recent post that he pins with 1/2 inch darts. What is your recommendation?

    Thanks in advance for the response.

    I gotta get back into quads. I went through a period where I was getting painful injections where I got scared and pulled the needle out and just did my delts instead. Plus they said inject where the bottom of your pockets are, but I sag my pants so I hit my kneecaps.

    ...jk

    front of quads not the side.
    needle is straight up and down when I am sitting down and injecting

    I do like Deadlifting Dog. If I go further down, I get pain. I also do site injections so I use a slin pin.

    So far I've never had PIP in the quads, but I do what everyone else here is saying, sort of like the front pocket area. I go a little more to the side. I'm just doing my best to avoid hitting a nerve. That's my biggest fear with pinning.

    I might be wrong but I think that doing leg day exactly after pin forces the oil do go up in the subcutaneous tissue. No medical evidence, but when I worked out after pin, the pin area felt the same as when I injected 0.4 ml subcutaneous.

    I have been curious about this myself. Anecdotally speaking, every time that I have done delt injections right before hammering them with upright rows or high pulls, I end up getting a lot of puking from the muscle into the fascia. I end up with pooled oil hanging out around the bottom where the muscle connects.
    Never had it happen with quad pins, but it damned sure happens with my side delts.

    Maybe pin depth is a factor? If you went deeper into the quad muscle than into the delts, you ensured that it stays there. Anyways, until someone figrues it out I'll be slothing around the day of the pin. Or pin after workout. Got me this far.

    I use 1” 25g for both, and the fat on delts is thinner than my quads, so if anything it should be the opposite. Quite literally the only thing I could think of is muscle size, but I’m only using around 0.8 ml/injection, so that shouldn’t even remotely be a factor.
