So as fate would have it, I have been hit with a mild case of bicep tendonitis in my right arm. Ibruprofen helps but I have a meet in 3 weeks time. How to proceed?
The main thing I am concerned about is deadlifts. I always do mixed grip, with the RIGHT hand being my underhand grip (the side with the tendonitis). As a result, I am a little nervous using the mixed grip on max effort sets.
I have some knee wraps and I hear wrapping the bicep tendon could be a good way to train trough it for now or switching to hook grip? (but I have never done hook grip so this close to the meet I am not sure?)
In a bit of a pickle so it would be great to hear from you guys what steps I could make the next three weeks.
Pumping myself with ibruprofen would help but its not gonna prevent a tear if I do mix grip with some tendonitis.
