Considered posting this in injury section or strongman section (since tearing a bicep in strongman is pretty much a rite of passage), but powerlifters tear their biceps plenty often, and this forum gets way more traffic than the other two.
So any ideas?
Most people will probably say “switch to hook grip”, which is fine; a lot of bicep tears do happen on deadlifts. But is there anything that can actually be done prehabilitation wise to minimize the risk of occurrence during anything, be it deadlift, curls, atlas stones, bench press, etc?
Tons of light, high volume curls perhaps? No direct bicep work? Never using full ROM on curls? Always using full ROM on curls? Certain kinds of movements like hammer curls?
Just wanted to crowd source this question. I’ve had a bit of a bicep injury on my right side in the past, and it’s never quite felt the same. I keep thinking like it’s just a matter of time, and I’m doomed to wait for the inevitable SNAP.
