Gym dudes and dudettes, today you’ll have the chance to see a live filmed biceps tendon tear and man oh man, you’ll cringe at the simple sight of that nasty injury!
First of all, what’s a biceps tendon tear? Well, this bodybuilding related injury is quite easy to explain:
Tendons attach muscles to your bones. Your biceps tendons attach the biceps muscle to bones in the shoulder and in the elbow.
If you tear the biceps tendon at the elbow like in this youtube video with the powerlifter who ended up with a biceps tendon tear after doing a deadlift, the entire muscle is detached from the bone and pulled toward the shoulder, just like in the shocking video; To heal such an injury you will need surgery!
