Ruptured Biceps Tendon....WOD's
Confirmed today that I completely ruptured my proximal bicep tendon in my right arm. My pre op consult is on Monday but I'd like to start putting together a plan for recovery. I know that I'll be basically immobile for the first 2-3 mo but has anyone else here had the same injury? Wanting to get an idea of what to expect on the recovery side. also, I'm likely opting for surgery as I'm relatively young (33) and try to compete at a decently competitive level so a full recovery is a must. opinions? advice? wods?

First phase will be no sweating as you do not want an infection and skin bacteria can travel in the moisture, then there will be PT and protecting it for 2 to 3 months with strengthening it. typically 4 to 5 months for strong maneuvers, but you can stay fit with one armed stuff and lower body exercises. I have had people sled pull warpped around other shoulder, 1 armed kettlebells, one armed rowing etc.
