Biceps strain

(1/2) > >>

calfzilla:
Pretty sure I strained my biceps couple months ago. It got better when I backed off training but resumed training hard and it is aggravated again.

My question is, is there a way to heal this up without stopping lifting for several months?

Please help.

I've had an issue like this for the past 15 years with my elbow area. 

My only advice would be to let it heal.  If possible you can continue training if you can train around the injury (which is almost impossible) and to warm up well before heavy movements.

When you decide to resume training go very light and take some time to work back into heavier weights.

Also to take a few workouts to acclimate your muscles to new exercises.

It sucks because as you said itís pretty much impossible to train around it.

Also in my original post I meant to say biceps tendon. Whatever I injured I noticed that it affects my hammer curl muscles the most in that the strength is much less and there is more pain compared to a regular dumbbell curl.

Got the same thing.

I've had periods when it hasn't bothered me at all and I've done pullups and so on.  Then I do something and screw it up.

Right now I have tennis elbow which is different and on the outside of my left elbow.  That really sucks.  It's the tendon that is attached from your pinkie to your elbow and comes into play whenever you grip something.  I've had that for months.  Got it doing seated low lat rows one day.  Hadn't done them in awhile and went heavy.  

If it only bothers you doing one or two things then just skip those and do something else.

Pretty sure seated low rows is how I injured mine.

My plan is to not train back and bis for a few weeks and go from there. Maybe lift light when I do train those again.
