Muscle Group

Location Procedure


Biceps Center of Each Head Dead center of either head – 2 spots per bicep Normally suitable for only small injections – can only hold small amounts of oil – painful for some, not for others
Calves Center of Muscle Head Dead center of either head – 2 spots per calf This is the most painful area to inject and will be extremely sore almost every time – there is no reason to inject calves for 99% of all people
Deltoids Center of each Head Dead center of all three heads – 3 spots per deltoid The lateral head is the easiest head to inject and the most convenient spot to inject other than glutes – most no one will need the front or rear head, but it is possible
Glutes Upper Outer Edge 2 inches below the lower back and move towards the hip approximately 2-3 inches – 1 spot per glute This will be the easiest and most convenient area to inject for anyone
Lats Center of Muscle Direct center of head – 1 spot per lat Can hold a lot of oil – very hard to do on your own due to reaching around to the area – beneficial if more areas are needed and you have a helpful hand
Pectorals Upper, Middle & Lower Upper Inside – middle inside – lower outside – 3 spots per pectoral The lower outside area can be extremely painful – most will find the upper inside to the most tolerable – should only be used if injections are so frequent new areas are needed
Quads Outer & Inner Heads Direct center of either head – 2 spots per quad The lower head (tear drop) can be extremely painful and while it can be used is not recommended
Traps Center of Muscle Direct center of the head – 1 spot per trap Absolutely no reason to inject this area – can be dangerous and is only mentioned for informative purposes as it is possible
Triceps Center of Each Head Dead center of all three heads – 3 spots per triceps Most will find the long head, the part on the very back of the arm to be the easiest to inject – The lateral head can also be used, the front most portion of the triceps muscle – the medial head can be extremely difficult to inject and painful for most

If you need a diagram of the muscle groups you should probably avoid the steroids until you are better equipped, but if you wont listen to me you can also click on the image below to get a better look:

    I am just wondering which one is gud cycle for lean bulk nd hard body I have done stana nd tren a nd test before now I feel some joints pain after tht cycle do I go for Decca, nd test now ?? I also done hgh after my cycle

    1. Jake Archer

      Lean bulk has more to do with your diet then the gear you use (outside of the sides). Deca/Test is a good cycle with an AI to reduce sides, just make sure your diet is spot on for best results.

    Jake what is the correct gauge for Intramuscular injections – (Glutes)

    I Think i have used 22 G in past. This is for Test Enanthate and Deca.


    1. Jake Archer

      There is no correct answer but I wouldn’t go below a 22 gauge. Most guys use 22-26 gauge for the glute so whatever you can get hold of and works for you will be fine.
