    :confused: That's a 'private' place, y'know? Can't they inject elsewhere?

    Because they do it so often that it'll show marks on their arms?

    Hmm, i guess that makes sense... i was thinking maybe the shoulder would be a good place (i get flu shots in the shoulder).

    Gluteus maximus is the biggest muscle in the body, and I think it's best to do certain injections into muscles, and the larger, the better.

    because it leaves marks on them, and most people don't stare at their bare ass.

    The only time I ever witnessed a guy using them he shot it into his pectoral muscle.

    It has nothing to do with marks!

    It has to do with the glute and the hams being some of the biggest muscles in the body so uptake and then absorption is then better. People do inject in the arms and shoulders, but it is usually for spot injections or specific types of AAS.

    Test e, p, c, deca, dianabol...all in the glute

    Some forms of DNP, clen, and tren are injected in the arms and shoulders.
