    delts spew gear wtf?


    I've used 5/8ths and 1inch 25gauge pins and it seems like I always have some oil leak from my delt shots. Proper procedure is followed. Tried leaving pin in my delt after the shot for a few seconds too just to let it settle. Nothing's working. It prolly ain't a big deal but I hate to lose any gear lol. Any suggestions? I'm apprehensive to jam a 1.5 incher in there. Thanks bros.

    You could try to inject using what's called the "Z-track" method. I'm a nurse and we use this method for certain meds and injections. Basically you pull back (slide it to one side) the skin, inject, then let go of the skin. Google it for a better description.

    What he said

    I started doing z track technique on my own without knowing it existed than in nursing school I'm like ohhhh yea that's squeeze-n-pin technique lol.

    Also maybe 1.25in needle and mayb 1.5 if ur big dude. And try to pin the oil in segments like pin .5 cc wait 10sec and pin the rest.

    How long does it take you to pin from the moment it breaks skin? I always take around 40 seconds for each pin

    I've pinned delts and haven't had this problem but I believe in pushing the juice in very slowly so it can find a place to go. Haven't been pinning long but I'm only using 1" 25g needles and haven't had this issue yet.

    Thanks a ton for all the responses! I usually take 15-20 seconds for a half cc. I may give the ztrack a try for sure. Thank you so much. Reps coming for your responses!

    Inject, then pull 1/4 out and wait 5 seconds, then another 1/4 out and so on until the needle is completely out. If that doesn't work, just apply pressure immediately after withdrawing the needle with a cotton ball. Z track is ok, but only really easy to do on yourself if pinning quads.

    Yea ztrack is meant to be performed on a person by another person. It's hard to do it in delts.

    Another Nurse here, I had the same problem a year ago.
    I rotated more sites in. Vastus Lateralis will give you a foot of room to develop scar tissue vs the small surface area of the delt appropriate for pinning...

    Just an update. I started using a 1.5 inch pin and going in deeper and haven't had any issues. Thanks again for all the advice.

    The following are ways to avoid most injection problems:

    1. Go deep.
    2. Use name brand pins.
    3. Inject evenly paced.
    4. I pull the skin tight, as expressed in the z-track method.
    5. Heat the oil.
    6. Pull out evenly paced, straight out.
    Just inject.

    ^agreed^ on all points
    However, I have only used name brand pins and for me personally, with multiple injects a week, delts are not enough, even for 10-12 weeks. Rotation is critical for me. This may not apply to those who may have assistance w z track and other precautions in place.

    Actually, it should just be an additional point in my post. Rotation is very important.
    Just inject.

    Nothing like trying to push through scar tissue.

    I jabbed my left front delt with 3 ml Test C/EQ last night. 25 ga 1" pin. I have never had a problem with blow back. Just push really really slow. Then again, it depends on how much muscle you have in your delts.
