    Injection advice

    So Iíve been pinning test only for a few years now, cycle on and off, have used a few orals with the cycle hit injecting wise Iíve only used test, twice a week at most, (every 3 days when I used sust)

    I have always pinned in my glute but Iím getting to the point now where one Iím finding that I just have a tonne of scar tissue where I pin and it feels weird going through it, sometimes gives me a bit of pip for a few days, and also Iím finding it harder to reach comfortably.

    I pinned my quad once which was so much easier but gave me massive virgin muscle pip, I couldnít use my left leg, I want to start pinning my quad and Iíve accepted to go through the virgin muscle phase.

    Question is, I just pinned half a dosage just now as I was working away this week and picked up the wrong vial so only had half a dose on Wednesday. My quads are definitely on the skinnier side, I have always used 1 1/4 needles and I just went probably an inch in and it felt like it was to far in, I aspirated anyway and pushed the test through, but just for future reference is 1 1/4 needles needed or should I just go for an inch?

    1 inch is probably sufficient. The length needed depends on where you're pinning or how much fat you're holding in that area. You just need it to go far enough in beyond the subcutaneous layer to reach the muscle.

    I fucked up & ordered 1 1/4” instead of my usual 1” - both 27ga

    I’m not a huge fan of the extra 1/4”

    I pin my ass, tris & delts - never tried bi’s or legs - pec injections are too killer

    Personally, If I pin into my ventral glutes with a one inch, I need to push the needle in all the way and then a little more, so I use a 1.5 on this spot. 1 inch everywhere else.

    If you dont reach the muscle, thats fine this makes it a subcutaneous injection that many people use.

    Start using your Lats, posterior delts and Traps. These are great places . Avoid the highly vascular quadriceps, its a not an ideal place for injections.

    I personally dont pin into my biceps, its a small muscle prone to tears. Theres no evidence that pinning helps produce tears, but theres no evidence it doesnt either.

    I pinned my glutes with a 1 1/2" 21g needle, then switched to quads with the same needle. It was like a dream, compared to the glute shots.
    Imagine how I felt when changed the needle size after like 2 years of pinning quads with those tubes to 1" 25g lol

    Honestly, I wouldn't pin my quads, if I didn't have to. About half of the many times I've pinned there, I've ended up coughing a lung up because I'd nicked a vessel on the way in. And I'd aspirate with no blood going in to the syringe.

    Having more spots means less chance of buildings scar tissue over time.

    I use a 25 gauge 1 inch in my glutes medius

    Everywhere else I use a 30 gauge half inch.

    Delts
    Traps
    Chest
    Lats

    Avoid quads by any means necessary.



    This helped me a lot:

    Did you inject in the right place? I hit a blood vessel like 5 times of every 100 glute shots, but only hit a vessel once since doing quads (last 3 years, over ~300 pins). I hit a nerve like 5 out of 100 tho, but I always just push the needle through and act like nothing happened.


    Injecting to chest/traps/lats is just pure madness imo. Imagine getting an infection and having cut your pecs..ouch
