    I was doing sitting military presses last night and on one rep late into the exercise, I felt something tighten in my right tricep. I dare to say it felt like something rolled around a bit but it definitely did NOT tear where you feel the whole tricep roll up towards the shoulder.

    I woke up this morning and now I have this huge bruise on my tricep. It doesn't hurt or anything although if I massage the area, it's somewhat sore.

    What could have happened?

    sounds like a tear to me. Might not have been a complete tear but tightness/rolling followed by bruising indicates something fucked up.


    Ice the shit out of it

    Is this a probable long term issue?

    How long does this shit take to heal? I don't want to be out of the gym for too long. However, it's obviously not my call.

    Long enough until it's gone, and then add 2-3 more weeks after that. :nono:

    ice it for 8 minutes 5 times a day...try to stretch it lightly once the bruising goes away. rehab it from there. rom then strength.
