    TRT 1/2in. Inject to Delts

    Question for you fellas.

    i have been on trt for the last year and recently had a buddy recommend using 26x 1/2in slin pins into the delt for injection.
    Curious if this is getting deep enough IM for trt...
    what do you guys recommend?

    I use 1”. I want that shit in there lol.

    1/2 for delts is likely fine
    Size is the prize and swole is the goal

    You can go subcutaneous for TRT no problem... It’s how I started... however, it got boring. Now I use 1.5” 25g in the delts.

    The whole getting deep into the muscle is BS. I use slin pins for trt without issue. Blood work comes back fine slin pin/1", 1 1/2" same deal.

    I started pinning with 5/8 in the delt. I would get a lump every now and then and when I talked to pillar about it he suggested going to a long needle in case I wasn’t getting into the muscle. So I switched to 1”. Turns out the lump was from running test enth, my body doesn’t seem to like it.

    ive done it too...

    sub q, IM, whatev

    .5 inch for delts should be enough if you are semi lean......you could need a 5/8 or a 1.0 if .5's are an issue

    I don't do SQ but DF is right, the body will find it. An example; anyone use the cream or any transdermal patches? There you go.

    slin pins are great 25g 1/2 inch are the best imo

    would be nice to get some slin pin style at 3cc though

    rather than the 1cc

    I always get looked at like I have three heads when I mention this, but I found enanthate to be awfully irritating to the skin. It didn't fare much better in the muscle either.
