    Default Injection Site + Proper Needle Length

    Hi guys, I currently use a 23 gauge needle (1 inch tip) in the glute for shots. I was wondering what type of size gauge/needle length does everyone else use to get intramuscular. I was thinking of doing shoulders/quads to give the glutes a break. Any medical advice out there or suggestions for shoulder/quad injections?

    25g - 5/8th inch will work for delts and quads.
    25g - 1 inch will also work for delts and quads.

    Whatever works for you but there is no scientific reason for jamming a harpoon that is 23g into your delts or quads.

    If your lean, a 0.5 inch slin need will do the job for delts. I prefer the 5/8inch 25g myself.

    For some reason i enjoy a 1.5 in delts/chest/quads. I've never hit my glutes actually, not flexible enough to stab them. I used a 27g 5/8 for awhile but didn't like that tiny bit of oil that seeped out everytime I pulled out lol.

    Last night a buddy asked me why I use such a small guage! Not sure what he's thinking.

    I'll give the 25g a try.

    No pain..
    but i think it depends on the person for smaller guy i would not recommend this
    Just not enough meat there know what i mean
    On a denser bigger bodybuilder 1 1.5 gets it nice and deep into the muscle

    I take it back. I can't be bothered to try a new gauge. I get next to no pin pain now. There is some PIP, but I don't think the gauge is to blame.

    I use the 27x5/8 myself.
    I just leave the needle in for a bit before withdrawing and I rarely have anything leak out
