    Where are you trying to pin? www.spotinjections.com has good shots of where you can try in general to pin. Whats your technique like? I personally (for quads in this case) sit down, relax my leg, and pick a point in between your hip and knee, draw a line around your leg at this point. Then halfway between straight up and straight out pick a spot to push the pin in, wipe down with alcohol, and slowly push the pin in, when it's all the way deeep. Aspirate (just pull back a little to see if you draw blood in), then if all goes well, slowly inject the oil, let the pin sit a little bit before pulling it out, and massage the area after pulling the pin out (and cleaning up any blood trickles).

    -Just make sure you arent going in at a funny angle.
    -Try holding the bottom of the syringe with one hand, and pushing the plunger in with another.
    -If you start shaking or twitching, stop, think of something else, and relax...I know my leg always starts twitching when i do thighs.
    -Sit down for thighs and delts, and sorta lay down, or at least sit down for glutes.
    -Go slow.

    I've only gotten bruises in places where i can only use one hand like delts (especially the right delt cuz i have to use my left hand). For me, it's important to keep the dart as steady as possible to keep bruising to a minimum. For this reason, i prefer pec and thigh (front and side) shots best b/c i can use both hands and keep things steady while injecting.

    Thanks for all the info bro's.

    I've already checked out spotinjections.com.. it's an awesome site... and I use it.

    I have injected every body part except my lats so far. And yes, I aspirate every time.

    My problem areas seem to be my biceps, quads, and triceps. Big buising on my biceps!

    My tecnique is super-slow. I like to see the pin breaking the skin.. don't know why...? I guess I feel safer doing that because I want to know if I hit a nerve.

    I think you'll probably know if you hit a nerve whether you're going fast or slow lol

    Rotate injections sites.
    Use 25 gauge for everything. it may take longer to inject but it causes less tissue damage.

    I do rotate every day. In fact... I inject the same location only once per week.

    I know that you guys are trying to give me pointers.. but it's not going in the right direction.

    I've followed all rules and precautions while injecting ... still I get bruising.

    I was just wondering if there was any way to prevent bruising.

    My guess is that your hand is shaky either on the way in, while the needle is in, and/or on the way out.

    If you move the needle, you will bruise. You may also bruise even w/o moving the needle.

    Sorry, I can't be more help, this just happens sometimes. if you are bruising everytime then I do find that odd.

    You helped more than you know bro....
    I now realize that I did move the needle alot on the instances that bruising occured.
    I figured that pain was the only result of that... guess I was wrong.

    I'm gonna have to work on keeping the needle steady when injecting..

    Thanks.

    also sometimes you are just prone to bruising.. I know I have at least one good bruise during a cycle.. I just say I banged into one of the machines.. which happens even not on cycle...
