The ideal size for injecting in the glute is 23 gauge inch. Reason being, injecting into the glute is somewhat difficult when you’re first getting used to it as you have to turn around and watch carefully and not move it around to much which is tough when it’s behind you. For this reason it’s ideal to keep the time it takes to a minimum. Pushing in a 23g will be like a pinch, it doesn’t hurt much. Granted it will hurt more than 25g it won’t be bad, and it will be worth it in the end. Using ” is pretty much necessary as you should always leave a little bit of room between the injection spot and the top of the needle in case it were to ever snap off and you had to pull the needle out (this has never happened and probably never will but better safe than sorry!) To get to the meat in the glute you have to be pretty far in, and thus need a inch to get there.
The connection between steroid-use and bodily harm has been well-observed. The performance-boost that many athletes have achieved with their help has been followed by various injuries and sometimes career-ending physical breakdowns. (Can anyone tell me where Carlos Delgado has gone since he almost single-handedly thrust the Mets into the 2008 National League East pennant race?) And now it appears that HGH can also cause harm without ever having offered the same benefit as steroids. The possible side-effects mentioned by the Mayo Clinic are not only joint and muscle pain but also swelling of the limbs, male breast-enlargement and possible contributions to diabetes and heart disease.
