The bodybuilding industry has long been surrounded by controversies and myths, but one thing that’s for certain is the importance of taking care of your body, especially when it comes to injections. In a recent episode of the Bro Chat podcast, three professional bodybuilders discussed the benefits of more frequent injections and how they’re doing them.
Hosted by Fouad Abiad, the podcast featured Justin Sheer and Iain Valliere as guest speakers. They talked about how doing more frequent injections can be beneficial for bodybuilders, those running a cycle, and even those on TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) like themselves. They explained that splitting up injections into daily shots rather than doing one or two big shots a week helps reduce scar tissue buildup, makes it easier for the body to absorb, and ultimately leads to more stable blood levels.
It’s important to be consistent with injections, especially for those who are sensitive to hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and DHT. It’s recommended to do injections at the same time every day to maintain stable blood levels. However, they cautioned against doing subcutaneous injections with underground products because of the risk of infection. They recommended intramuscular injections with a one-inch needle into the delt, glute, or quad muscles for bodybuilders and those running cycles.
While the benefits of more frequent injections were discussed in detail, some listeners were concerned about the speakers’ advice to reuse needles. The speakers recommended using an insulin syringe to draw the liquid and then changing the tip to a smaller gauge needle for injection. They also suggested reusing the drawing needle, but some listeners found this unsanitary and risky.
Overall, the podcast episode shed light on the importance of consistent injections and how doing it more frequently can lead to better results. However, listeners are advised to consult with a medical professional before making any changes to their injection schedule and to always use new needles for each injection.
