I just tore my bicep again. last year on my left arm I tore it from the bone. Friday I tore my right bi more than 50% on the bottom of it. I go see the Dr on wed to see if it needs surgery.
Is it age? is it from years of overtraining? Not drinking enough water? all I know I dont want to be out of it for 16 weeks again? I do look at it like this, I would rather have things break and then fixed, than to die too young from being out of shape.
Sorry to hear about your injury but I don’t see what biceps have to do with fitness. And I certainly wouldn’t stop training completely due to a torn bicep. Leg work!
I also feel that my cardio training helps with injury recovery due to increased blood flow, if nothing else. Even with a torn rotator cuff I was still able to use my recumbent exercise bike and do leg presses and dumbbell work on the unaffected side.
As for the cause of the injury, exactly what move were you doing when it tore?
