Quad Pinning Question


#1


anyone ever pin in spots 1 and 4?


#2

I have not, I don’t know why anyone would. The pre-set spots (glute, VG, delt, quad-upper outer area)are chosen for a reason, in those specific areas you are least likely to hit arteries or veins. Why risk pinning in an area that does not offer you that safety? Stick with spot #1/2 the upper outer area.


#3

1 yes, four no.


#4

I have shot IGF in the Vastus Medialis only - it is relatively painful (relative to standard spots). i would not pin AAS there - there is simply no reason to. ever.

When i shoot oils into the thigh, i ALWAYS go in the larger, flatter, Vastus Lateralis… it is the best area and there is never any need to go in the Rec-Fem IMO either - although i know some do (usually out of ignorance i assumed).

Did it once, will never do it again.

This is what I have heard every time I’ve heard this mentioned, which is why I’ll never do it.


#7

good to know. anyone use lats or traps as sites regularly?


#8

Lats are rather weird but work fine. I’ve not yet tried traps. I’m saving that site for emergency only :wink:


#9

I have again shot both, and shot lats semi-regularly using IM IGF - however again there is just little need.

The most any regular AAS user will need to inject is once a day… that is 7 shots a week, this can easily be covered by rotating the 3 popular sites;

2x Quad
2x Gluteal
2x Deltoid

If you felt the urge, you could add a Bicep and a Ventro-Gluteal… and this would now be enough to cover 2 shots a day (10 separate sites rotated).

When using peptides or GH you will be either shooting sub-cut OR shooting minute volumes IM with 29g needles… removing the need for site rotation to any significant degree.
So all i can add is you should really be focusing on something other than where to stick yourself…


#10

Outside of the quads, side delts, (hit nerves in front delts), triceps…upper, MEATY portion. That’s all I need.


#11

I have done both and it was with supertest 400 which is 400mg/ml sustanon (strong concentration= more pain). I used 21g 1 inch needles and the first time for both places was pretty painful. The day of you can barely tell you injected. But the next 3-5 days will leave you close to immobile. The weaker the concentration the less pain. After a month of injecting these spots, you become more used to it and some times it hurts more than others, depending if u hit a blood vessel.
