Local Injections + Growth

Hi
i have read that some compound like testo prop. can be used to increase hypertrofy of smaller muscle with “local” IM

i mean, if i have to train my pec, i pin my pec… (sorry for the bad english… hope to be undeestandable…)

is it true? ot is just “urban legend”?

in the early days of my “research” i had found a articles on that topic. i’m unable to find it again … and on “main” boards there are no intresting material on that topic…

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

ANything that is attached to an ester has to be broken down before it can be used by the body. The chemical has to be systemic, then be distributed to the cells.

SO no - test prop will not contribute to site growth beyond temporary swelling post injection.

At least that’s my understanding.

thanks… i have no thought of that, the ester presence has to be removed and this can’t be done in muscle

I think that the only compounds that might possibly offer genuine site enhancement (ie, NOT just a temporary localised swelling) would be unestered steroids, and/or IGF1 and/or PGF2a. My money would be on the IGF1 as exercise causes more receptors to be exposed in the just-exercised muscle, therefore, that muscle will uptake more of the IGF1 than other muscles.

IGF-1 should do the trick… the only problem is the “time factor”… it’s not easy to do IM just after workouts…

so test suspension or eq without an ester might?
