Alright peeps, i was lifting some heavy dumbbells last friday and i felt kinda a strain.. not a pop or pull. I could tell there was some pain but i finished my bicep workout. The next day i looked at my left arm and it looked alot smaller than my right. But i could still lift 40's on dumbbells and curl 80 on the ez-bar curl. So if anyone has had a bicep tendon tear can you tell me how much of your strength was reduced? Im afraid i might have this.... Im praying its just bicep tendinitis
Hurt bicep with shi*ty form and too heavy weight
Pains not that bad
Can still lift alot on arm, but strength is kinda down
Afraid tendon is completely torn/ all the way torn off
First one is normal....

Does this look like a torn bicep?

*Note, best thing if you are really worried is to go see a doctor. This is obvious, of course, but just have to say it.

I'm not a MD, but I poked around for a while and what you describe sure sounds like something I would personally want to have checked out by a physician. It seems consistent with a strain at or around the distal biceps tendon, which could just be a mild aggravation, mild tear, partial tear, or something more serious.
If it were my arm, after what I have read, I would NOT do anything that put stress on that tendon. I would go to an orthopedic specialist (upper extremity) at a sports medicine clinic. Hopefully they will tell you it's a mild strain and to take it easy for a bit with some NSAIDs, but if it is a significant tear you'll want to get an eval on it right away. Best of luck.
