Now I went and did it. Today while doing preacher curls I felt a twinge in left lower biceps area so I stopped right away. Hurts like hell to fully extend my arm and when I flex it to like do a bicep curl. No black and blue or swelling but shit man doesn't feel right. Any advice anyone????:(:(:(

Think positive... You probably just strained the muscle.. Don't work biceps or back for a week and see what happens..

yeah what mbig said. If u woulda torn something...you probably would have swelling and definitely bruising from the bleeding from the tear. Prolly just a muscle strain. Take ibuprofen...ice it..and rest it. You will prolly be fine.

Well almost 24 hours have gone by. If I fully extend my arm and lock the elbow it hurts, feels like the tendon is being pulled. Arm doesn't hurt unless i fully extend the arm or try to squeeze the biceps. I know muscle pulls and this feels different I think its tendon related. You can push and squeeze the biceps and theres no pain in the muscle

If you are not full of blood or deep brusing. It's proble not torn. Are you black and blue. If complete tear it will be black and blue within mins. I told you everything I torn.

No black and blue and no sign of blood. Like I said I've pulled over extended and strained before but this is weird. A twinge in the area below the bicpes at the top where you bend the arm (where your bicep meets the forearm)
