    I've only done subQ, haven't tried IM because the subQ has been so effective. I am curious though, what is out there regarding subQ, that would be in the negative column?

    Question is,,,,,,,have you tried subq and found it not as effective as IM???

    My understanding is subq has more stable delivery.....what have you found?

    There is an old Thread on this subject and with many post and statements from members that have tried both ways and the general conclusion was all people are different and that there was no definitive right or wrong way to inject .

    I recently read an article about a dude called the Godfather of steroids (I think). He ran some experiments with test subjects. His theory was that sub q injections had a more stable delivery, meaning the test levels were plotted at certain times and the sub q looked less like a roller coaster compared to IM. I'll try to find the article and journal entries/papers. It was interesting.

    So I just remembered why sub q has a "smoother" delivery. Google helped. Muscles have a greater supply of blood and distribute the injections quicker, resulting in a spike in serum level versus sub q which takes longer to distribute the injected substance.

    Currently I am trying to do my first cycle exclusively sub-Q. 150mg. test c / eod - currently on day 30, no issues. Will run BW in 2 wks. to check absorption.

    Dr. John Crisler is a big advocate for subcutaneous injection of Test., but this is only for convenience and it has nothing to do with efficiency. Intramuscular injection is the most preferred method of administration.

    I'm eager to see the article paper out of plain curiosity, hit us up when you pull it, thanks!

    Hey Proxi, do you have your "Endeavor Log" or something, it gives great backbone for personal accountability and also opens ones trip to suggestions/input/feedback/help to others while observing real-life living-experiments like me in my log etc, I'd be sure following along your log and would be very interested to observe and learn from you.

    I will sure be watching out for 2 more week mark to see what you have to say about your BW, by the way, do you get any lumps/bulges from higher cc injection so frequently subq?

    Thanks

    I experimented with 150mg. 2x/wk for 8 wks. in February-March. A week after returning to my regular TRT dose, my total T was at 1900, so I'm feeling confident the higher amounts are absorbing, but I'm curious what the new BW shows as well.

    Only had lumps once or twice a while back when I injected T near my belly button, so generally I've been using my fatty deposits around my sides and into my lower back and haven't had any lumps. I save the midline region for the HCG & Sermorelin.

    Thanks for the journal request, toying with the idea, but generally they work best with pics and I'm not a fan of my body. In fact the more I see everyone's pics here on the forum, and the more time I spend at the gym, my mind is reverting back to a disgust with my body image that I haven't experienced in about 20 years. Sorry for the downer.

    Great info, one thing though - its not about comparing you with someone else, although it may be tempting for someone, "competition like feeling" I know the catch, but you're doing TRT not because you want to look better or compete vs somebody else, its a self-competition, its today's YOU against tomorrow's YOU, so I'd say man up, stand up, and be a man others could look up to, because at the end of the day its all about self improvement in a long run, nobody should or will judge by no means, and if somebody dares, you know what it is, its not about them, its your footprints of yesterdays against goals ahead that You set out to beat!

    About photos, heck whats the difference, nobody is forced to post any, and if you fear so/doubt so - feel free not to post them at all or until you see comparable difference you're proud of, because again its your journey and your battle of You VS. You. Also, I read alphabetically only and photos I can only take for a reference so I dont mind who looks like what, if man speaks sense and genuinely shares his journey and experience, I find it first hand a very sincere and valuable thing to come by.

    Just trying to give some motivation and reason to search for the spark and answers in yourself. hope it helps, whatever you chose to do, its respected, nobody should turn man against his will

    I certainly like the Dr. I however thought subq offered advantages in a couple depts: 1) no scar tissue hassles from long-term TRT usage via IM injection 2) aromatase benefits given the slow absorption (particularly beneficial for those sensitive to estrogen conversion and would prefer not to use or to minimize usage of AI/SERMs).

    Thanks 965Vette. I definitely see the point of the 1st advantage and it makes sense. The 2nd one is something new to me. I may need to educate myself more about it. Thanks for the info anyway.
    In this case, why IM administration is the most preferred method? or at least the most commonly used.

    Tried the sub'q with test-e but always had long lasting lumps that where sensitive to touch and hurt like hell. Had to go back to im and was sore but that subsided within a day or 2.

    Nothing special there as most folks can look in the mirror and find stuff they don't like about themselves even if others think they are perfect.

    Its tough to fall into that train of thought. Think someone already mentioned this, but try to simply look at yourself as a work in progress and compare yourself to ONLY youself. We all can't have figures of the gods, so its futile to think that way. If you are making progress then that should be all that matters. Truth be told you probably have a better physique than 90% or more of men in your age range. So that's something to be proud of and an accomplishment worth patting yourself on the back for.

    I don't like my body, and wish i could transform more quickly as the work i put in at the gym seems to be progressing slower than i would have hoped for, but not going to let that get me down. You are in better shape than most and at least you have something to work towards. If you had the perfect body then where would you have to go from there?

    i agree with Vette , for those still not convinced and generally negative about SUBq, have a look at this video. it explains the pros and cons and considering he is a specialist dr, who in collaboration with world renowned trt specialist dr Shippen, i'd rather follow his advice over guys who have chosen one without trying the other.

    his preferred method is Subq, and his days are spent treating low T patients- if anyone knows its him and he is in awesome shape for an old dude!
