Steroid Injections

Introduction: Clarifications, Myths, Rumors, and Truth Proper injection protocol and procedure is extremely important in regards to proper anatomical knowledge of where to inject, how to inject, and proper sterility practice. What must be discussed and clarified first are the various myths, rumors, and truths in regards to the subject of steroid injections. There exist various myths in regards to steroid injections both among the general population as well as among the anabolic steroid using community itself. This article will begin with the most common myths among the general population, and work towards the myths among the anabolic steroid using community. Myth: Steroid injections are administered intravenously (into the arm). Truth: Wrong. This is a very common myth among the general populace that is uneducated in regards to anabolic steroid use. Anabolic steroids are, for the most part, oil-based solutions (the hormone is suspended in oil) or water based preparations that contain microcrystals that contain the anabolic steroids (such as injectable Winstrol or Testosterone suspension). If either of these solutions is injected intravenously directly into an artery or vein, it wou Continue reading >>

    IM insulin injections

    IM insulin injections
    I decided to do a little experiment and martyr my fingertips in the name of science. Shooting Humalog IM instead of subQ will speed up its onset of activity as well as shorten its total activity time....I see both of these things as an advantage to us. I've heard people say that shooting Humalog IM will lead to too fast an activity onset.....I don't agree, and my numbers prove this to be so.
    We use insulin post w/o to expedite the replenishment process of intracellular glucose and amino acids, primarily in muscle. The quicker the onset of insulin activity, the less time our muscles will be in a nutrient-deprived state. Also, the shorter the total period of activity for insulin, the less time we have to eat an insulin-specific diet (i.e. no fats and limited carbs).
    So, here�s the deal: I do IM insulin injections of Humalog post workout to expedite the activity onset. To dispel the myth that the activity will be so rapid as to be dangerous, I�ve plotted my blood glucose (BG) over time, with measurements taken roughly every ten minutes.
    BG isn�t the only factor to consider when using insulin post workout, with proper simple carb intake and protein intake. Keep in mind that insulin will cause rapid cellular uptake of glucose as well as amino acids (supplied by the rapidly digestible whey). We�re artificially engorging cells with excessive concentrations of glucose and amino acids, which temporarily �satiates� cells and greatly decreases these cells� dependence on blood for glucose (for the time being). Also, the excessive overabundance of amino acids also allows mitochondria to utilize amino acids as �fuel� and further decreases the dependence on blood for a supply of glucose. The sum effect of the aforementioned factors is a greater tolerance for a lower BG level. A BG level that may normally be considered �hypoglycemic� under normal circumstances will NOT cause any hypoglycemic symptoms after administration of insulin, followed by proper carb intake and protein intake. In fact, very low BG levels can be tolerated just fine following insulin + proper carb and amino acid intake. I regularly have BG levels below 50mg/dL roughly 1.5hrs after insulin injections, and I have no hypoglycemia symptoms. However, under normal conditions, BG levels this low would invariably cause terrible hypoglycemic symptoms and be very dangerous.
    T= -5 is post w/o before insulin
    T=0 is 10IU Humalog IM into left bicep
    T= 5 is BG prior to my ingesting 85g of dextrose, 5g of glutamine and 7g of creatine
    T=35 is BG prior to ingesting 80g of whey
    T=105 is BG prior to 25g of dextrose and 150g of chicken breasts
    After 150min past an IM Humalog injection, my BG remains stable
