Injecting steroids properly affects not only the overall athletic performance, but also the health of the athlete. There is always the risk of pain and irritation at the injection site when using injectable steroids, mainly because the user is inexperienced. Therefore, it is important to be cautious when injecting and know the best sites to inject.
How to properly inject steroids
Any injections must begin with the preliminary preparation of the syringe and steroid. Trenbolone Acetate and testosterone esters are oil-based solutions, which are designed to better absorb the body and facilitate the introduction process. Before injecting the steroid, some suggest to warm up the steroid by rubbing the bottle or vial in between the palms of both hands. To get the steroid into the syringe, you must take off the cap of the syringe. Many experienced athletes pick up oil without a needle, which is much faster and more efficient.
Before the injecting Trenbolone Acetate or any other steroid, it is recommended to clean the area with an alcohol absorbed cotton swab. Once you have the steroid solution in the syringe be sure to get out any air bubbles by pushing up until there are no visible air bubbles. Inject the steroid in slowly and continuously without any sudden jerks, pausing or sudden movements. After the injection, some suggest using an alcohol-soaked cotton swab to clean the area where the steroids were injected. This may promote faster healing of the site.
Instruments for the introduction of Trenbolone Acetate
The syringes for anabolic steroids injections are based on personal preference. Most commonly, a 3cc, 21-gauge, 1-inch syringe is used for injections. Others will use 23 or 24-gauge, 1 ½ inche syringes. It is important to note the basic items needed for injections:
- Syringe for 2-5 ml;
- Cotton swab(s);
- Concentrated alcohol;
- Peroxide (if necessary);
- Glass ampoule opener (optional).
The syringes are available at your local pharmacy and do not require a prescription. It is recommended to choose syringes up to 5 ml, however, it is not required. Thinner needles may allow the individual to inject the steroid with minimal pain. At times, pain will be associated with frequent injections so it’s best to always rotate the injection site. The glutes, upper thigh area and shoulder are considered the best areas to inject. Always make sure the muscles are relaxed as injections made into flexed muscles will make it harder for the solution to go through the skin. Rub the injection site with your fingers for a few minutes following the injection to alleviate any build-up and allow the solution to go deeply into the tissue. Many athletes and bodybuilders have antibiotics on hand in the rare cause of infection to the site.
