do not stop training man. that will make it worse and slow the healing down. keep training just be cautious on what you are doing and do the 50 or 100 rep sets when you get in there to make sure that area is nice and warm. i use and used a heating cream on mine. icy hot, saloon paas, horse linaments screaming hot toast and or artic balm. i put it on before i train every day. what i did or should i say what i do whenever i hurt something is i will do my normal training but if it hurts or pulls even a little i will stop and switch movements. prime example is after i jacked my bicep, i could not do pronated grip pull ups at all. it tightened down on me bad. so i went to neutral grip and now i am able to do them pronated again. pt straight up told me after every time i have been jacked up do not stop training no matter what. you have to push blood and stuff through the area as often as possible with a little stimulation to speed up the process
i am lucky to have your experience and advice, i will give this a go. Thx brutha
I was putting a heavy DB down after a set of bench pressing, it got away from me, and I felt a pop in the bicep. Now it hurts to even open a door not to mention curls and rows. Not a glorious way to get injured. This ever happen to anyone else?
Does the bicep ball up when you contract it into a muscle more than it used to? Or seem to jump involuntarily when you contract it? If so you may have a tear.
They are both pretty ballsy as is and no jumping around. I picked up a tire full supination and curled it with my right hand then my left and felt good. I grabbed a light pole and pulled like a row as hard as i could with my right hand then my left hand, and felt good. I made an appointment with a doc but idk if I will go. seems like strength is moving along alright. When life is driving you insane the iron throws ya a bone : )
