Mixing Testosterone-E and Deca for a subcutaneous injection?
Hi all, I'm new to the site and new to pinning these substances.
I hope I can get some information on this question.
First, my stat's...
I'm 5'10 245lbs stocky and 45 years old. I am looking to do mild bodybuilding (if there's such a thing), get leaner, and feel more youthful.
I have begun pinning Test-E @ 250mg/week. (125mg/Mon and Thurs) I will do this for 10 weeks (1 10ml bottle of 250mg/ml).
At that point, I will add 200mg of Deca/week (100mg/Mon and Thurs).
If there are not any issues, I will stay on the test/deca until I no longer wish to grow, then stay on Test-E indefinitely.
I currently have an 80week supply of test/deca at this rate. I will add HGH when I can afford it, but that might not be this year.
I have taken HGH alone for 6 months in the past using SubQ injections to my stomach fat.
Now my question...
My "advisors" (local long term body building friends) have instructed me to take the test' IM.
They have also suggested that I can mix the test' and the deca in the same tube and do IM pins.
I have been reading that SubQ Test-E injections are OK and might even have some benefits over IM'. There is a lot of discussion on the net about this.
For me, I think I would prefer SubQ injections into belly fat because of my experience injecting HGH in this way. I would at least like to try it since I plan to do this for a long time and I haven't enjoyed injecting IM to my quads and it is difficult for me to inject my glutes.
So this leads me to a few options and a few questions as far as injection...
1. Is it actually OK to mix test-e and deca in the same tube?
2. Would it be OK to pin mixed test-e and deca SubQ to body fat?
3. Would it be OK to pin test-e and deca separately SubQ to body fat?
Of course I know everyone is different, but I'm just looking for a baseline injection procedure that is convenient and works for long-term use, and I don't know what you can mix, or what is OK to pin to body fat.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I'm trying to get a solid routine started.
All the Best

^^^He said about the injection volume, just inject more often but only .5cc each time. I use SQ for my HRT but have used slin pins for thighs into the muscle also.
Lift heavy and eat lots of dead animals! Yes, that's me in my avatar.

Ok, well in my case you can forget about using insulin needles (i.e...31g 1ml slim). I broke a plunger just trying to draw and remove air. I was being careful and patient too, but you'd need some serious time to use these.
I switched to 3ml 25g and pinned .5ml test-e oil (dynasty) about 3/4" into body fat (spare tire). I have about a handful down there at this time.
The 25g rendered a nice speed... about 30 seconds and was completely painless.
I could feel the oil spread, it's not like it pocketed. I'd say to about a 3" diameter of spread that I could *feel*. Kind of a tingly feeling, no burn.
I would have no problem doing this to the other side in one session when I add the other .5ml 8 weeks from now.
I'll keep you guys updated for side's. So far, so good.
All the Best

I would pin IM. And I would use a 23g 1.5 inch for quads and glutes and 23g 1inch for delts and smaller muscles. Don't ever use a slin pin to inject oil based test! Better off running Test-E for 12 weeks 250mg o2 weekly E3D and Deca once a week for ten weeks, DBOL for weeks 1-4 for oral kickstart at 30mg a day,also I would take Aromasin 12.5 EOD, plus keep some caber on hand due to sides of Deca. and HCG o2 weekly day before test injection 250iu.

With sub-q a lot of the esters will not be absorbed properly. There will be some benefit but a lot will be wasted IM is the way to go so the esters can do their job properly.

^^ dh have you tried this? Asking just because you've pretty much tried everything + had proof of it through self experiment.

After reading some users experiences with it, especially Hammers, I did my first sub-q pin today. My plan is to pin 75mg of test cyp EOD which will put me arond 300mg/week, depending on the week. Ive read where some people say they dont feel it when they pin SQ, but i did. the onset was little delayed though. My first DR put me on 100mg/wk of test C and wasnt concerned about E2, said thats just part of it, then i saw another specialist and when he ran labs, my E2 was 63, and so he put me on 1mg of Arimidex EOD, im supposed to go back in few week and get new labs, so that will tell me how the sq is doing and im anxious to see where my e2 is at, hope i can afford to keep going to this DR.....

I've met with Dr Crisler before. Back in the 80's he was into everything he could get his hands on and was jacked up huge. So he knows what it's like to be on a cycle. He doesn't believe in that anymore and tries to keep strict TRT protocol on his patients. I follow his advice on HCG because it makes all the sense in the world. I'd be interested in hearing his rationale for saying sub-Q will cut down on aromatization. For a layman like myself, it doesn't make sense. The only thing I can think of is that the slower release will slow down the surge of aromatization, but the volume of conversion should be the same, just not so rapid. But I'm guessing.

I'm 3 pins into SQ now. Not a lot of time for feedback yet. As stated, I'm doing Test-E 2X/week @ 125mg per pin.
Prior to this I was doing 250mg 1X/week IM (only did this twice).
I have to say that if it's possible, I did feel a crash coming off the higher dose of IM to the first lower dose of SQ. I guess this is because the SQ was taking longer to get into my system, therefore taking several depots working together to get the same release. Then again, it could have been the flu (which I didn't get).
Now on my 3rd pin of SQ, I'm feeling about the same as on my 2nd pin of IM
Of the 3 pins, one case created a lump, while the other two (the first two) did not.
This might seem crazy, but I'm thinking that this was due to my needle control, which was the best by 3rd time (which created the lump).
Put another way, I think on the first two pins I was "hunting" a bit while injecting, and this dispersed the test' to different areas instead of keeping it all in a single pocket.
Of course I'm not going to recommend this to anyone, but on my next pin I might intentionally move the needle (by withdrawing it a bit, then taking a slightly different angle and re-inserting) to see if this avoids the pocket. Over time I might have some more evidence to provide the group on this improper technique. Being fat (by bodybuilder's standards), I'm not really worrying about damaging my fat cells...screw em'.
Again, I"m going about .5" to .75" in to belly fat using a 3ml/25g, and I'm lightly pinching the fat to get a nice target and stay away from my abdomen muscles.
Seems OK so far and I'm not limping from the IM's.
I did on one try have pain on insertion right at the beginning (.25" about) so I withdrew, moved about a half an inch over and had no pain, so I'm thinking there are some nerves that can be touched at least in the belly fat area.
The final thing I'd like to note....without any real evidence... is that I seem to be losing fat faster in the area that I'm injecting than in other parts of my body. That could be my imagination, but normally for me I *gain* weight in the belly first when losing it in other areas as my body seems to move its stores there. My mad scientist theory on this (and I am one), is that the oil is suffocating some of the fat cells in the area by coating them. I'll keep you updated on this as well.
Edited to add:
Due to diet and exercise + test-e, in 3 weeks I'm down 15lbs and building muscle.
I am ridiculously horny all the time, which my bodybuilding friends just laugh at, but i have to admit I'm a little concerned if this is an indicator of my levels of "something" being off. Hmmm

Dr Crisler said that pinching that fat while pinning SQ increases pressure within fat cells, and that increases trauma of the cells.

Ok, I tracked down the YouTube video of Dr.Chrisler doing SubQ injections and all I have to say is...wow!
While I found the reasons why pinching the fat is less than optimal, more importantly I found a video that will make my girlfriend instantly STFU about me taking test' injections! This guy looks better than I have ever looked....and I've looked pretty good at times.
I have a new hero.
Thanks for the info'

I just did my SQ injection with a 26G/3/4" pin in my lower abdomen, and when i pulled it out there was a significant drop of blood, i put pressure on it for a sec and it was good to go. My previous times i havd SQ's there was only a very tiny spec of blood, and even when i IM with a 24G 1 1/4 pin it usually only has a spec of blood. im about 18% BF, so it shouldnt have hit my abs, but dont of any other reason a SQ would produce blood....

IM injects for test/aas: 23g 1.5" for glutes, 25g 1" for delts & outer quads (vastus lateralis)
sub-q for peptides / hcg
