    hi,

    I’ve got an issue in my bicep that’s been ongoing for about a month now and I’ve been trying to train around it but am essentially just damaging it further.

    Not sure how it happened, but I feel it on back and bicep excercises , it’s fine on everything else.

    It occurs at my Lowe bicep insertion point near the elbow joint and I feel it when my arm is near the straightened position. Even if I try to do a curl with no weight I feel it when initiating the movement.

    There’s no visible bruising/colouring around the area.

    Any idea what this could be, was tempted to use some peptides to speed up recover too - any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds like it could just be strained. If it was torn you’d know all about it. refrain for a week or 2 on pull exercises, and if it’s still present, it wouldn’t hurt to get checked out. I have a theory certain bicep insertions are more prone to being torn. always get some blood into the muscle and if you deadlift avoid a mixed grip.

    Thanks, does anyone have any advice on peptides or if I’d benefit from them?

    They might help but only in certain situations, and without a diagnosis then you’re pissing in the wind.

    Wouldn’t bother going down the peptide/GH route until you actually know what is wrong. Best thing to do IMO is to find a doctor that specialises in sports injuries and go visit them, at least that’s a starting point to a diagnosis.

    Would do as someone else mentioned though and take 2 weeks off training all together (weights) and see if you are still having trouble with it after that.

    I had this almost exactly the same by the sounds of it,6 days off on holiday and I was right as rain.
    Rest is sometimes the only option
