I’ve only pinned 3 times but I figured out a little trick that I thought I’d share in case it could help someone else.
I select the area that I want to inject on the quad, then I get an alcohol pad and clean the top of the vial and then clean the area I’m going to inject. Let that dry for a minute then I draw, get the air out, put the injecting needle on, then look back at my leg and…oh shit! Where did I clean to inject?
So this time I came up with a little trick. I took an old creatine scooper (about 3/4 circle) before I started anything and pressed it upside down on the spot I wanted to inject and twisted it. It left a perfect 3/4 circled indention right at the spot I wanted to pin. Then I did the clean / draw / swap needle routine and viola! I still had a faint circle right where I wanted to pin. Just have to hit the bullseye from there! Lol
I know this may not be an issue for some of you, especially in glutes or delts, but it sure was helpful to me because the quad is a big area and trying to remember that one little spot that I picked out and cleaned after looking back and forth a few times can be quite challenging. This really helped me so maybe it will help some other newb too!
Maybe some of you guys can share your ticks here too.
