    push through bicep tear?

    I've been going much harder lately in gym and 2 days ago was biceps. Felt sore days after but nothing remarkable.

    Today a started warming up on military press and my bicep had a small "pop". Not at shoulder or elbow, but right in the middle of bicep.
    No deform, severe pain, discolor, warmth or swelling, just umfomfortable. However, holding a weight in any angle made it worse, so I went home after a run.

    I can use my arm with no issues and flexing bicep makes me feel it riiiight in the middle, even when I push or massage. Just no weights, don't think I have strenght loss.

    Everything online and doc talk about tendons, but I feel it's the muscle itself?

    I box and gym, should I push through or rest a bit? Couldn't even do squats or military as plan b, but don't wanna become a sack of potatos for weeks^^

    Rest it. Why risk making it worse to the point of being debilitating. Your body gave you a warning, heed it.

    Hard to answer, but how much pressure can I put? I mean, can I keep a bar in squat stabilized if pain is acceptable. Or is the risk to furthur damage bicep high even there?

    I would back off and rest it. If you keep pushing it you could do further injury that may need surgically repaired.

    Damn shame, was just starting calisthenics now and then just for mobility - thought doing something new was good, damn old body
