Ask the Admiral

If anyone who reads this newsletter has any questions about steroids, cycles or any related topics then send me an e-mail. I like to think I know quite a bit about steroids. I'm no Dan Duchaine, but it's a hell of a lot easier to get in contact with me than it is to talk to him. Any questions will be answered as soon as possible.

A) Hulkster, what are the procedures on injecting steroids?


A) Plan what medications you are going to take, what dosages, what needle size is required, what area you are going to inject (buttocks or thigh).

B) Check the expiration date on the medications to be utilized and also make sure that you thoroughly examine them for tampering.

C) Gather all the necessary items you are going to need: medication, needle, syringe, alcohol, Q-tips, cotton balls, etc…

D) Wash your hands and area to be injected thoroughly with soap. Rinse well.

E) If utilizing a vial, remove the color protective cap at the top and wipe the exposed rubber sealer with a Q-tip and alcohol. If utilizing an ampule, take a small file and with a smooth and gentle motion, scar / score the neck of the ampule, full circle around the neck. Then break open the ampule by snapping it at the neck with the dot on the ampule facing away from you. When breaking open ampules, you may use paper towel or tissue to protect your fingers.

F) Use a new / sterile needle and syringe, VIAL: pull back the plunger to equal the amount you are going to withdraw from the vial, then push the needle through the rubber seal and push on the plunger to inject air into the vial. Once completed, turn the vial upside down and slowly pull on the plunger withdrawing the medication till the proper dosage is withdrawn. Then withdraw the needle. AMPULE: once the ampule is opened, insert the needle into the amp and withdraw the medication, once all the medication is completely withdrawn, withdraw the needle.

G) With the needle pointed upward, flick the sides of the syringe to loosen any air bubbles that are stuck to the inside wall of the syringe, with some heavily oil based steroids you have to allow the needle to set (needle upward) for 15 minutes to allow for all the air bubbles to rise to the top (needle end). Once all the air bubbles have been removed, gently push the plunger till the medication starts to exit the needle, clean the injection site with cotton balls and alcohol.

H) Holding the syringe like a dart, aim toward the injection site and with one quick thrust, inserting the needle. Only insert the needle three fourths of the length of the needle, that way if the needle breaks off, it will be easy to remove the broken end.

I) With the needle properly inserted, pull on the plunger slightly to check to excessive blood. If blood is easy drawn into the needle, you hit a vein and the needle needs to reinserted at another site. If not, slowly push on the plunger and administer the medication, the speed of administering is approx. 15 sec per cc. Slow and easy.

J) Once all the medication is injected, quickly withdraw the needle. With cotton balls and alcohol, wipe and massage the area injected. There may be some blood that comes out of the injection site, but this is normal.

H) Take some antibiotic ointment and apply it to the injection site. Place a Band-Aid over it and there you go. Properly dispose of all products utilized.


1) Always utilize a new / sterile needle and syringe kit, NEVER share, reuse, etc… not only would you be taking a chance of infection, but AIDS can be contracted by sharing a needle.

2) For most steroids either a 21 or 22 gauge needle will work best, if injecting into the thigh utilize a 1" length needle and if injecting into the buttocks a 1.5" length needle is fine.

3) The amount that can be injected at one time into one site is 5cc for men in the buttocks and 4cc in the thigh, for females it's 4cc in the buttocks and 3cc in the thigh.

4) If injecting Insulin, ONLY utilize an Insulin designed needle and syringe kit.

5) Watch for symptoms for an abscess, infections, allergic / skin reaction, blood poisoning, or and thing that may appear out of the ordinary, is anything should appear, except some slight tenderness and a black and blue spot at the injection site, see a doctor. If in question on anything, ask a doctor, most will not prescribe steroids but they will treat side-effects, adverse reactions, infections, and most importantly administer blood screenings to make sure your bodies internal system is operating properly.

6) The most important aspect of this entire procedure is STERILE PRECAUTIONS. You can never be too STERILE.

7) Never allow anything to come in contact with the needle, if it touches your finger, table top, etc… either replace the needle or wipe it with alcohol. When not inserting the medication or preparing to inject yourself, keep the factory protective cap over the needle.


First break open the solvent ampule by snapping it at the neck with the dot on the ampule facing away from you. When breaking open ampules, you may use paper towel or tissue to protect your fingers. Draw up the solvent into a syringe, then break open the ampule(s) containing the powder (using the same technique as above), and add the solvent to the powder by slowly pushing in the plunger of the syringe. Gently stir the solution (by rotating the ampule) but do not shake. The solution should be clear and should be free of particles. Draw up the solution for injection. Use a different syringe for this or switch needles just prior to injection. Needles with higher gauge (25G and higher) are smaller and are more comfortable to the patient. Be sure all air bubbles are tapped out of the syringe. Wipe the injection site with an alcohol swab, then insert the syringe through the skin in the appropriate injection site (usually the upper thigh or buttocks). TO BE SURE THAT THE NEEDLE IS NOT IN A VEIN after inserting the needle into the skin, pull back on the plunger of the syringe while holding the syringe in place. If the syringe begins to fill with blood, the needle is in a vein. If this happens, remove the needle from the skin, throw the syringe away, and start the procedure again using new materials (drug, syringes, etc.). AFTER GIVING THE INJECTION, cover the injection site with a small bandage if necessary.


Insulin may be injected into any area of the body where a layer of fatty tissue is present. The abdomen is the preferred site for insulin injections. However, your diabetes nurse may recommend other areas such as your thighs, buttocks, or upper arms. It is important to space insulin injections about 1 inch from the last injection to avoid scarring and thickening of the skin at injection sites.

B) Admiral, what are the most important aspects in utilizing steroids?

Mistakes to Avoid - Written by The Admiral

In order to get the most out of a steroid cycle there are several basic guidelines that everyone needs to follow. If you think all you have to do is shoot up and work out then your not going to get the most out of your cycle. Here are some basics to remember.

1. Work out hard - When you start cycling you should adjust your workouts to a more high intense mode. You should do a minimum of 3-5 sets per exercise for large body parts such as back and chest. And 3 or four for smaller muscle groups. Some people like to do more sets and that is fine, but if your doing to many then you need to consider that maybe your not using enough weight (especially if your doing 8 sets for a body part). Off cycle I never like to do more than 2 or 3 sets per exercise for a body part. The first 2 should be light warm up sets. The following sets should be heavy sets carried to failure. You should be overloaded at 8-10 reps. if you can do more than 10 reps then you need to add more weight.

2. Use the right exercises - Use exercises that are multi joint movements such as squats, deadlifts and presses. These will encourage growth and are great mass builders.

3. Get enough rest - You need to get enough sleep to make your body is rested. A minimum of 8 hours should be headed and if possible then get up to 12 hours. If you can't get this much then make it a point to take a nap in the daytime. Even a 1/2-hour nap will do you good. I recommend an hour to 2-hour nap every day.

4. Don't overtrain - Even though you are on a cycle it is very easy to overtrain. Try working each body part, very heavy, once a week. Remember the higher intensity you train a muscle with, then the more rest it needs.

5. Plan your cycle - When you start your cycle you will see rapid gains, but these don't last forever. The stronger a steroid is then the faster it's effects decrease. Stronger steroids such as Anadrol and Parabolin will start tapering off after about 4 weeks. While others such as Deca and

Dianabol will show continued progress up to 10-12 weeks.

6. Eat right - You know by now that you should eat 5-6 meals a day. When on a cycle your caloric intake should be up to about 5000 calories a day. This might seem like a lot, but with all the growth your body needs the fuel. Also you need a lot of protein when cycling. You should get about 1 to 1.5 grams of protein, per pound, of body weight, a day.

If you follow these guidelines and work hard, I guarantee that you will see big gains on your cycle. Make sure you always use your head and plan out your cycles.
