    I have a mild strain of my right biceps from a freak accident today. I iced it immediately.

    Anyone have this happen? How long was recovery? Ice, rest, Aleve... anything else?

    Last time I sprained a bicep, it took a couple weeks to heal completely, but I was working out again (just not biceps) in a week.

    A "mild strain" usually only takes 4-5 days. All you need to do is rest and maybe ice. That is all. Nothing else needs to be done.

    Where is the strain at? Shoulder or Elbow? Shoulder takes a bit longer than elbow but overall it should go away by week and half at most.

    It will take longer if it is not mild.

    It feels great. I took a week away from the gym and it is all better.

    I strained it in a sorta fucked up way. While camming with someone who wanted me to flex in leather, I had an leather armband on. I learned that I could unsnap the armband and make it fall off but by just flexing really hard. So I did it over and over and over again because it was sort of a hot trick.... it wasn't my fault... okay.... I am a exhibitionist.

    But after a while I had overworked the muscle because I had to flex really hard to make the band unsnap. Sooooo, the lesson is...

    It's all fun until someone pokes their eye out OR it is really sexy until someone strains their biceps.

    Uhm.... a week away does hurt you bro. but I am back in the gym today, as a matter of fact! I was really happy with my shoulder workout today. I am going to get heavier and heavier as I get ready for rugby. Hopefully, my body will get leaner but my gym weights will get heavier!
