I would like to see an Injury/recovery forum. Perhaps we have a Sports Med Doc that can start it off?


Welcome to the "Injury Recovery and Prevention" forum on Rx Muscle. Share your experiences in recovering from an injury as well as tips you may have on prevention of those injuries.

Thanks Curt. Welcomed addition. I look to both assist others and to learn new tricks. I have been lifting for some 60 years and have experienced for myself and seen others work thru amazing set backs.

Dont have a tip but need advice on recent injury

While doing BB Rows I had a very sharp pain in my bicep. No discoloration so far after 4 days but still very tender if I pick up any weight with that hand. It's deep inside the middle of the bicep. Any clues to what I have done?

I guess I should mention we did rack pulls before the rows up to 675.

Mike the good about your injury is that it is not at either attachment point. That would be a tendon/cartillage issue. Bad thing is that it could be a tiny tear in the muscle belly.Painful. I had one of those years ago on the Nautilus Bicep Curl machine. Like a F'en bee sting. I was advised the old Ice 20 min several times a day remedy and to do curls for the next week or so "Hammer" style. On back pulls I never used under or thumbs up grip. Had to use palms down only. Took about 2 weeks.

When I ruptured my pec away from the humerous bone on incline bench it was in front of Troy Alves. That same week he got a middle pec muscle belly tear on the same exercise. (He swares I did voodoo on him). Troy did the Ice and was 100% in a month. I am 20 months OUT and still only 75%.
