    I wonít lie, I chickened out the first day. I bet my heart rate was 160 when I did it. Quads. And I was surprised it didnít hurt much. But I was nervous about hitting anywhere else so they whole cycle was done in the right quad. First time I hit a nerve I thought Iíd screwed up bad

    What size needles do you guys use?
    I've read that a lot of people use slin syringes to pin.
    Does any of you guys use 25g x1" needles? (orange)

    My first test shot I was nervous as helI had no one to give it to me. I told myself what the hell got to do it and pinned myself. After first time I found it wasn't that bad. Problem is I don't pin quickly. To me once I pierced the skin didn't bother me.

    I use 1" long 23 ga needle for my test.
    For IGF-1 Lr3 I use 1/2" 30 ga needle.

    when I began using I was dating a nurse, but like a dumb ass I broke up w her leaving me to inject alone (kinda like the first time I had sex LOL) but she taught me well, IIRC I just swabed the area and punched that muther in, it wasnt bad at all. But that was in the mid 80's and I've done it hundreds of times now, not really my fav thing to do but like the result

    You be fine, its normal to be nervous, once u do it a few times it becomes pretty easy. I am pretty fearless when it comes to injections anywhere but quads can be rough, so can delts. Calves can be either good (cuz easy access) or bad as in gushing bleeding, if they swell they look pretty cool
