This was the first dead session where my abdomen felt solid again. Unfortunately my long time training partner Ricky ruptured his distal bicep tendon. Anybody here have any experience with a tendon rupture??

Did he see a doctor yet? Is it bad enough for surgery?

This is at Seattle Strength and Power. The owner trained with Doyle Kennedy for many years and has been a huge help with my pull. Great gym!!

Strong work as always Justin. Lookin Jacked but, where is the tan? I will ask my wife about some good tanning salons in your area! But, to training.. How often do you incorporate deficit pulls? Is there a reason for 3" opposed to more or less? Would you reccomend using deficit pulls even if you are already fast off the floor and primarily have lockout problems? Thanks!

i just ruptured mine on june 16. had surgery june 19.

i'll start rehab using very light weight in 2 weeks. now, i just do ROM exercises with the assistance of my other hand

it takes 6-12(?) months for a full recovery.

here is a forum devoted to it:

he should have sugery within 4 weeks max from when it happened, otherwise it could scar over. then he'd need a graft / transplant.

by the way, surgery isn't "necessary, but without it, he will lose ~60% of his strength in that arm and be "disfigured" with "popeye arm".

I save the tan for the last 4-6 weeks leading up to the meet. You cant look that good AAAND be that strong all the time!!

I like to add them in every 3rd or 4th M/E deadlift workout. BUt keep in mind that I only pull heavy every other week so it can be a couple months before I get back to them. I have found that they help with speed off the floor and lockout.
