How to Inject Steroids
If you’ve never supplemented with anabolic androgenic steroids before there are some questions you may have, and various things you need to know. Of these questions, one of the most common is how to inject steroids? Injecting anabolic steroids is an extremely simple process and far less complicated than most people make it. Further, as the body is large and you have several muscle groups you’ll find you have several places in-which you can inject but the protocol will be the same for each location. We’re going to discuss how to inject steroids in every aspect so that you’ll have the ability to perform your injections with confidence and ease. Once you’re done reading this information how to inject steroids will no longer be a problem you have, and you’ll be able to focus on more important matters.
How to Inject Steroids Intravenously:
How do you inject anabolic steroids intravenously? You don’t. Anabolic steroids are meant to be injected into the muscle; directly into the muscle tissue. Injecting into your veins can result in horrific consequences and as such there is absolutely no place for this method. Beware; you will find idiots who insist intravenous injections are the way to go. Unfortunately in life every group of people has idiots but remember, an idiot is just that, an idiot regardless of what he says.
How to Inject Steroids Subcutaneously:
How do you inject anabolic steroids subcutaneously? You don’t. Anabolic steroids are meant to be injected into the muscle; directly into the muscle tissue. While a subcutaneous injection will not be as devastating as an intravenous injection, it can still prove to be very problematic. An infection can occur if this practice is undertaken and it can be extremely painful, to say the least. That said, as you will be injecting into the muscle, some may leak out of the muscle tissue and settle under the skin in a similar subcutaneous fashion. For this reason, it will be very important to follow proper injection procedure.
How to Inject Steroids – Pre-Injection:
You want to know how to inject steroids, but to provide a complete answer we cannot simply say stick it in the muscle there’s more to it than that. There is an appropriate technique you’ll need to follow, and we have provided you a step-by-step list of instructions that take you all the way up to the actual injection point. The steps are as follows:
When learning how to inject steroids, as the pre-injection procedure is extremely important so is the post-injection protocol. Often this part is negated in conversation as most simply don’t care; after all, all most care about is getting the actual anabolic steroids into their system. Again, we have provided you a thorough list of procedure:
- Needle Selection: There are many, various needle sizes, and you will need to choose one that will allow you maximum comfort while also enabling you to push the oil through the needle with ease. In most cases, a needle size of 23g-25g will suffice with a total length of 1″-1.5″. Some may find using a draw needle of a larger size to be useful and then replacing it with a smaller needle for the actual injection. Regardless of the needle size we will use a clean and never before used needle for each and every injection.
- Air-Up the Syringe: Once you have a needle selected pull the plunger back drawing in at least as much air as the oil you’ll be drawing in. Failure to follow this step will make it very difficult to draw the oil into the syringe.
- Empty the Air: Once you have the syringe filled with air place the needle in your ampule or vial and push the air into the contained oil.
- Drawing the Oil: Once the air has been pushed in draw the syringe back filling up the syringe with the desired dose. You may find filling the syringe just slightly passed the desired dose to be useful.
- Air Bubbles: Once the syringe is full of the desired dose you’ll need to ensure no air is left in the syringe. Simply push a little oil out through the needle while tapping your finger in a flicking like motion against the syringe. This is why it is useful to put slightly more oil in the syringe than you actually need so as to allow this process to occur. Keep in mind, when we say overfill the syringe we’re talking about a miniscule amount.
- Prepping the Injected Site: Now that you have your syringe filled, and the desired needle in place it’s time to pick a spot to inject. Once an appropriate region is selected you’ll clean the area with rubbing alcohol; alcohol swabs are ideal for this process.
- Aspirate: Once the area is clean you will be ready to inject. Place the needle into the desired spot, press it in firmly yet gently but do not push the oil into your body just yet. With the needle all the way into the desired location pull back the syringe; pulling back 3-5 tenth markings will suffice. If blood comes into the syringe, you’ll need to pull the needle out and move to another location. You may be able to use the same muscle, but you’ll simply need to move over an inch or two. If no blood fills the syringe, you’re good to go where you are.
- Inject: If you’ve followed steps 1-7 you are now ready to inject your solution.
How to Inject Steroids – Muscle Selection:
If you’ve never supplemented before and you’re curious about how to inject steroids the first image you’ll have is injecting anabolic steroids directly into your rear end; after all, this is how it’s almost always depicted on TV. It is true you can inject into your glutes, but you actually have a total of 9 muscle groups in-which anabolic steroids can be injected. Within the 9 muscle groups, you will also find most muscle groups have several spots in-which you can inject; further, as you have two of each muscle the total number of injectable points thereby doubles. The following table lists each muscle that can be injected, the number of sites that can be injected in the muscle, as well as a specific location.
Glutes 1 per Glute Upper Outer Edge Quads 2 per Quad Outer & Inner Heads Calves 2 per Calf Middle (center) of Muscle Head Deltoids 3 per Deltoid Center of each Head Pectorals 3 per Pectoral “Upper Middle & Lower” Lats 1 per Lat Center of Muscle Traps 1 Per Trap Center of Muscle Biceps 2 Per Bicep Center of Each Head Triceps 3 Per Tricep Center of Each Head
From the chart above, as you have two of each group you have a total of 34 points on the body in-which anabolic steroids can be injected. To further assist you, we will go into detail regarding each injected site, so you know exactly where to insert the needle; after all, you need to know how to inject steroids and we want all your questions to be answered.
Now you know how to inject steroids and now that you do you need to be aware of potential problems that may occur. If you inject, and the needle nicks a vein or blood vessel you may find you develop what is commonly referred to as “Tren Cough.” The Trenbolone hormone can produce this in a more pronounced manner than any anabolic steroid, but any injectable steroid can cause it. This is why it’s important to aspirate, but even with aspiration, if you barely nick such a spot you may find while blood does not seep into the syringe oil still seeps into the blood directly. This can produce a very distressing coughing reaction and make your mouth taste like metal. Typically it will not last for more than 5 minutes, but it can be very dramatic, extremely painful and even a little scary. If it should occur, there isn’t a lot you can do about it other than deal with it until it passes. Again, it should pass in a few minutes.
Another problem you may have happen will most commonly occur if you do not follow proper procedures laid out here or if you supplement with dirty or contaminated anabolic steroids; we’re referring to an abscess. An abscess is an infection that will develop under the skin. Commonly the area will swell, turn red and be warm or even hot to the touch. If it is a full blown abscess, you will more than likely run a fever and the area will be unusually hot. If this occurs, you will need to go directly to the emergency room. If you do not start a fever, and it is not particularly hot, it is more than likely a sterile abscess, and you will simply need to wait out the dilemma. If it is unbearable you may still find a need to see a doctor, but a sterile abscess is not directly threatening to your safety.
- Once you have injected all the oil leave the syringe in the muscle for 15-20 seconds allowing the oil to settle in the desired muscle. If you pull the needle out too quickly, some of the oil may seep out and settle under the skin.
- Pull the needle out and place a clean cotton ball on the injected area directly over where the needle went in. Apply pressure and hold for approximately 20 seconds. Do not freak out of blood is left on the cotton ball; after all, you’ve just pierced your skin.
- Remove the cotton ball and massage the area firmly allowing the oil to disperse throughout the muscle.
- Glutes: approximately 2 inches below the lower back in the outside area; a few inches to the right from center for the right glute and a few inches to the left from center for the left glute. Glute injections should never be performed in the center of the glute (meat of the muscle) as you risk hitting the sciatic nerve.
- Quads: -Outer Head: (Sweep) half-way between the hip and knee on the outside of the muscle -Inner Head: (Tear Drop) inject in the dead center of the tear drop (this can be a very painful area to inject.)
- Calves: In either calf simply inject in the dead center of the calf in either head. This can be the most painful muscle to inject, as the calf has so many nerve endings and should only be attempted if no other spots are available.
- Deltoids: Can be performed in all three heads Anterior (front) deltoid head: Direct Center of the muscle Lateral (side) deltoid head: Direct Center of the muscle. The lateral deltoid head is the easiest, and most convenient place to inject other than the glutes. Posterior (rear) deltoid head: Direct Center of the muscle
- Pectorals: You have 3 points in each pec Upper: The upper inside portion Middle: The middle inside portion Lower: The outer lower portion (can be very painful and should be avoided in most cases)
- Lats: The direct center of either lat
- Traps: Direct center of either trap. Can be very painful and while it can be performed is unnecessary and further can be dangerous. This site is only mentioned due to it being a possibility and is not recommended.
- Biceps: Inner and outer heads are both well-suited. In either case simply inject in the dead center of the head.
- Triceps: All three heads of the muscle in the dead center of the head are well-suited.
