Injecting Biceps

just wanted to know the correct needle size for injecting my biceps, I was thinking an insulin sized needle??

but would you think an insulin needle would be long enough or not? thats like 1/2 inch in length, deep enough?

Should be fine if you’re relatively lean. In my experience an insulin pin goes deep enough.

Unless you’re morbidly obese, a 0.5" slin pin is ok to inject in your bicep.

I only use slin pins with IGF or HCG. Pinning your bicep with a 29g needle is pretty much as painless as it comes.

What are you thinking of injecting?? It would take a ridiculous amount of time to draw and inject oil based compounds with that guage of needle. Also, the volume of oil, relative to the depth of the injection can prove important, as it can leak out of depot if it is too shallow. Only very lean areas of the body should be used for IM slin pin sites.

Sub-q, now that’s an entirely different story, and does not include AAS.

thanks for the info guys, I’m injecting Equipoise into the biceps and maybe do chest as well.

I’m banking on the “termporary growth” aka it looks cool. Nothing wrong with that IMO.

Remember that with respect to the absorption of androgens, not all muscles groups are created equal. I remember years ago that one of the mods posted a research paper that showed blood concentrations of testosterone being significantly higher, for longer, after being injected into the glute as opposed to the quad or delt. Keep that in mind when selecting injection sites.

I do remember that Moriarty. However If you’re doing ed or even eod injections then hitting your sweet/swole spot of choice before the week end/beach trip ect. is fine.

First, why? Don’t most people believe site injections don’t work? And second, ouch! Surely that would have to be one of the most painful places you could choose.

No shit.
I have took a few cycles (alternating glutes)in my day but it never made my ass larger!!! This is when I was doing some very heavy leg exercises. Take it in the ass.
I keep reading about horror stories about chosing different cites.

It is necessary when hitting EOD or ED. Even E3D, you neeed to rotate other sites than your glutes guys… c’mon… Long esters that you pin twice a week, you can get away with… short esters, you’d better start liking to pin elsewhere.
