      Bicep tears

      Innocent, yet legitimate question... I have seen way too many bicep tears during deadlifting. I am simply wondering why is this happening? I mean, arms should simply be considered as hooks during the lift, as opposed to bending the arms to pull with them. I can see a forearms tear, especially if not wearing straps, but then again, I figure your grip would automatically give up and you'd jut drop the weight. But, in my opinion, bicep tears should not be happening. Any thoughts, other than poor form?? Just wondering, and for the sake of discussion (or edification).

      Steroids. A lot of people use the wrong gear for powerlifting versus size.

      Adding weight slowly versus just going all out may be the cause. I know I can deadlift 500 lbs but at the end of this cycle I will only deadlift 550-575 lbs. because i donít want to tear something. I will be at 600 lbs by the end of the year but it will be slow going to get there. I have done it before, but slow and steady wins out.

      I canít lift anything with a torn muscle.

      Biceps tears basically come about when there's too much weight and force applied. Mixed grip on heavy deadlift for example is risky as it puts undue pressure on the bicep of the underhand arm.

      This is why there is a big push for the dual overhand grip. I still lift conventional. I know I am not going for a world record. Just more plates than they guy next to me.

      I agree! In addition, the natural/conventional grip seems to be the way to go, if you wish to maintain symmetry and balance vs strictly lifting.

      I alternate my grip until I reach the higher weights at which time I seek comfort in the familiar.
