    5/8 seems a bit small dont you think? For glutes shouldnt it be 1" or just 1" all around? I heard 1 1/2 inch but im a skinny guy an that seems kinda unnecessary. Im pretty sure the last ones I used was an inch I can't remember tho

    Your questions have been asked and answered many times on this forum.

    I use Exel syringes from:
    https://www.medical-and-lab-supplies.com/

    I draw with a 21g and switch to a 23g or 25g to pin with.
    1" should be sufficient for most people. There are guys who like the 1 1/2" for glutes but I don't notice any difference myself.
    Z track your injections and you shouldn't have to deal with leakage.

    What does z track mean? After I finish injecting I wait a ten count and if I'm not shaking very little comes out if any.

    As a standard I agree with all the other posters: 18g to draw, 25g to pin, 1" length (1.5" for glute).

    After a while and gaining a lot of experience, and depending on your BF%, you may choose other sizes/gauges.

    For me I like to draw from the vial with a 20g needle (18g starts to chew up the stopper for me).
    - inject with 23g (25g is too slow for me, it's oil after all).
    - 1" needle for all injects over 1ml (including glutes for me)
    - 5/8" for 1ml or less injects (excluding glutes)

    YMMV

    I use 23g 1.5. I ended up cutting one of the caps in half and use it as a stop, so i dont have to put the entire needle in.

    I use 3cc with 1" 18ga to draw. Switch needle too 1.5" 23ga to shoot. There is a method to the madness using the 1.5". If you only insert the needle to about 1" and aspirate then draw blood you can insert the final .5" and re aspirate. If the second aspiration is good let it her rip! This has saved me re pinning a few times.

    In my opinion, there is no need to aspirate once, much less twice.

    Once you inject into a vein/artery you might regret that. Better to be safe than sorry or worse, dead.

    Uh huh. I've been lifting for over 30 years, and injected hundreds of times. Not only have I never hit an artery, nobody I know has either. Not too common with intra-muscular injections.

    Hitting an artery would be tough but a vein? Not that hard at all. If your shoulder injecting the cephalic vein is of concern, if your injecting flutes the deep femoral vein can be hit. They are less than 1/2" diameter in most cases so I'm sure you'll be fine...

    I think I'll steer clear of the Russian roulette and keep taking the extra 2 seconds to aspirate.

    I use 22 gauge, 1in from gpz services. They are located in florida and fast shipping. You get a hundred needles for 10 bucks. Not bad and shipping is cheap. Used them a few times. They are gtg.

    No one aspirates in clinical settings any longer. Its unnecessary if you are familiar with vascular anatomy and know how to give an injection properly.

    God you are a moron. Aspirating saved you from nothing BECAUSE IT IS NOT NECESSARY. Nothing like a little broscience. Just so you know, medical science researches these things, and antiquated practices are deemed unnecessary.

    To aspirate or not to aspirate? The latest evidence on
    intramuscular injection techniques
    Vangilder, M. and Walden, A.
    ABSTRACT
    Rationale
    Since many shots are given via IM technique, nurses should
    know the latest research on methods to make the experience safe,
    effective, and as painless as possible for patients. Aspiration,
    or drawing back on a syringe to check for blood prior giving an injection
    into muscular tissue, has been a standard practice taught in nursing
    programs for decades. The authors reviewed current literature to
    determine if this practice is backed by evidence-based studies.

    Objective

    This study was conducted to determine the latest scientific evidence
    regarding the effects of aspirating prior to administering an
    intramuscular injection.

    Methods

    A meta-analysis literature review of evidence-based practice studies and
    practice guidelines from the last 10 years was conducted.

    Results

    A variety of study types were found including meta-analysis, randomized
    controlled trials, quantitative studies, descriptive studies, and current
    practice guidelines. These studies all agreed, regardless of study type,
    that the practice with the best outcome and least amount of pain was
    quick administration of an intramuscular injection without aspiration. In
    addition, several studies reviewed current nursing practices to find that
    many still use the outdated standards of aspiration. It was also found that
    with proper education, nurses can and will change their injection practice
    to mirror current guidelines.

    Conclusions

    A rapid IM injection technique without aspiration results in less
    pain. Aspiration does not confirm correct needle placement.
    As a result, aspiration is not a recommended procedure for IM
    injections in any age group.

    I aspirate and I've pulled blood and injected anyway because I didn't notice I pulled any blood. This morning I saw the blood and injected anyway, I'm not dead yet. Will report back if I do
