I had a partial tear, not in an attachment, but a tear in the muscle belly, about 1 1/2 - 2 years ago. Partial, but deep. And inch deep, at least.
Were it an attachment surgery would have been available, but with a tear in the mucle belly it was basically a matter of taking enough time to let it mend, according to my doc.
Trouble is that it just doesn't really heal. Partially, but not really. I tried DB rows with just 35 kgs today, and on the 12th rep it felt like something in my bi was about to snap. A sharp pain. I've been doing machine rows for a while, and thought I was ready to dig in on the free weights again, but apparently not.
So I'm basically asking for tips here. My protein needs are more than met, but I don't eat nearly enough greens. I eat fish a couple of times a week, but don't take any fish oil supps atm. I'm 43, BTW.
