Hoping someone can share insight or experience the above type of injury? I'd really appreciate any comments and thoughts.
About 3 weeks ago, I was doing a heavy set skull crushers (basing mid sets on 4 reps). On my last rep of last heavy set, pressing the weight back up, I felt a short pain in the area in my mid tricep and then felt a major pull. There was very little pain at first after the event but the next day it was a different story.
It's a odd injury as I can still do bench, rows and biceps but shoulder press, all tricep exercises and DB pullovers are all painful.
As precuation I went to see a physio the same week that it happend (not the one I would normally see) and said it's a tricep tear and lay off the heavy weights for a week or two. 3 weeks have passed and it has not recovered properly and today I returned to my normal physio who basically advised that its a Grade 2 tear.
I have now been adviseed that I am not to do any tricep exercises and also give up on the boxing until it heals. I have heard that these injuries can linger and its very demotivating given the momentum I was on.
From a rehab perspective, I have been given wall pushups with a 'plus' and do the odd tricep extension strech 3x day.
