Why Do We Inject in the Glutes? Big muscle? Fat? Low Muscle Circulation?

Hi Everyone,

I wonder why major injections are not done in the arm or other areas, but done in the glutes?

Why exactly is that?

Is it because the gluteus maximus muscles are the biggest muscles in the body. Is it because there is fat around the butt area? Or, because of low blood circulation and lack of hitting a nerve?

No, but seriously, glutes can handle a large load.

Ok, seriously serious this time. They are the largest muscle and handle large volumes of oil very well. I assume this is because the larger the muscle, the larger the blood supply, the easier it is to “absorb” and circulate larger amounts of oil. I’m not 100% sure, but this has always been my assumption. Could be completely wrong.

There is some concern for pissing off the sciatic nerve when doing glute shots though, so it is not without some risk. Albeit small if done correctly.

I have tried injecting 3ml into my deltoids and it’s not easy or pretty. Small area taking a lot of oil. I moved on to my glutes and feels like nothing. Absorption wise, I don’t think there’s any difference. But, yeah, your glutes can take that pounding.. lol and I am not ready to inject into my lats or traps.

I want to move to delts and maybe chest injections next cycle . Glute injections are a pain in the ass...

Unless I can find an easier way to do it, but i have to twist then it takes ages to press the plunger down and sometime i go super light headed

If you don’t have to inject a lot of oil (for me 2.5ml is max on delts), then go for it.

Glute injection were a pain when I started injecting. Specially when you’re heavy.. Had the same problem of feeling light headed too. But, though this may sound obvious, I started consciously breathing properly while injecting and it started to feel better. Plus, I really don’t turn a lot. I find my outer glutes (gluteus medius) very easy to inject.

I carnt remember now, pretty big though. Another reason I want to go delts is so i can get away with using a little needle lol
I pin glutes with 29 gauge but I guess I'm kinda lean. there's also VG glute injection site some people like. I just don't know if it will fit oil. I've heard yes and no

The standard one I get is the 24G 1” that comes with the syringe.

If you’re going to do on delts 26G 1/2” is great. Pretty easy to inject and oil goes in without much hassle.

You want to inject in the ventroglutes, dummy! Not the glutes. Less nerves, blood vessels, and issues should you have an abscess than anywhere else in your body.

Not sure why the medical community picked glutes and delts specifically but a bigger muscle has more dispersion due to the injection spreading out. Esters and volume matter too since Test Undecanoate is only as long lasting as 3cc or 4cc injections. Lower volumes have shorter active lives.

It’s a bit of a mindfuck at first but once you find it, it’s easy. Find some YouTube videos. In short, it’s between the greater trochanter (knobby part at the top of your femur) and the iliac crest (top part of your hip). If you look at skeletal pictures of that area, you can see how deep of a site it really is.

For about 10% of people (my right glute) their sciatic nerve runs through the piriformis muscle instead of under it. If I accidentally hit my piriformis I inflame my sciatic nerve for about a month.

Any way to know this without trial and error?

Not that I know of but that's basically how I learned about it talking with a PT after a bad injection.

Is injecting better than ingesting ??
I've heard of some good liposomal glutathione, but all the ones I've seen are really expensive. I never tried them because NAC existed. something would have to be done to improve absorption for it to be worth it.

Low nerve content look up the nerves of the body there is only really one big nerve which is the sciatic nerve running through it compared to other areas and the muscle is big so any disturbance to the tissue e.g oil injection wont have to bad of an effect so it wont effect to badly the muscles function. it doesn't get to much of a beating compared to say quads/ delts which are used 99% of the day depending on your job
