Muscle strain and bruising are among the most common sports injuries. Muscle strain is a tearing that is caused by the sudden extension of a joint beyond its normal range of function or by any other excessive physical demand made on the muscle. This type of injury to the biceps brachii or the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor can occur while the athlete wards off a check in hockey or tackling in football, during weight training, or as a consequence of sudden, violent torsion of the shoulder during throwing sports. The athlete may feel stiffness, tenderness, or pain in the affected muscles, and motion in the affected joints may be limited.
The biceps brachii muscles operate across three joints the glenohumeral joint and the two elbow joints. A biceps brachii tendon rupture is the detachment of the tendon from the bone, and it usually happens at the proximal end of the tendon. The injury is caused by sudden trauma to the biceps brachii tendon during weightlifting or throwing activities. The injury can also be caused by weakness of the biceps brachii muscle or tears in the rotator cuff muscle caused by repetitive strain. It may also be connected to degenerative changes in the tendons in older people.
Another general guideline for exercise order is to perform your large muscle groups (chest, back, shoulders) before the small muscle groups (biceps, triceps). If you exhaust your triceps first, then go on to chest or shoulders, you'll find that your pre-fatigued triceps prevent you from getting an efficient chest or shoulder workout. If you train your biceps before your back, your pre-exhausted biceps will limit your back workout.
The H11 lateral popliteal ARP is located on the lateral side of the tendon of the semitendinosus muscle, or on the medial side of the tendon of the biceps femoris. The sensitivity of these points can be evident in most patients on the lateral side, some on the medial side, or on both sides. Muscular branches (tibial nerve) Biceps femoris, long head Biceps femoris, long head Biceps femoris, short head The H24 common fibular ARP is just anteroinferior to the head of the fibula (Fig. 8-25). The common fib-ular nerve is one of the two terminal branches of the sciatic nerve. The finger-sized sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body, is formed by the ventral rami of L4 to S3. It leaves the pelvis through the greater sciatic foramen and runs inferiolaterally deep to the gluteus maximus. As it descends in the midline of the thigh, this nerve is overlapped posteriorly by the adjacent margins of the biceps femoris and semimembrano- The common fibular nerve enters the popliteal fossa along...
The biceps femoris muscle is inserted into the head of the fibula. It can rotate the lower leg so that the foot points laterally. The semitendinosus and semimembranosus muscles are inserted into the medial tibial condyle and can rotate the lower leg medially. The distance between the origin and insertion of these hip extensors and knee flexors varies greatly, depending on the angle of the hip and knee joint. Shortened hamstring muscles at the back of the thigh result in Biceps femoris
Gradually make the movements more complex and see if you can follow his mime. This will improve your ability to learn technique by watching and copying. 13. Sit at a table with your forearms horizontal. Relax and then try to contract your brachio-radialis muscle alone on one side. You may find that this is difficult, but with practice it should be possible to isolate this one muscle alone. When you have achieved this, move on to specifically contracting part of your forearm extensor group. To do this, lift one finger and watch and feel the muscle contract. Try different fingers. Progress to contracting specific parts of the muscle group without moving the fingers. Try to contract your biceps muscle without visibly contracting brachio-radialis. These exercises give you the ability to use your muscles in a controlled fashion. This is a very useful facility when performing thrust techniques that require accurate use of defined parts of your structure for...

A similar study was performed by Lemon and coworkers (1992), which compared protein intakes of 1.35 and 2.62 g kg d during the first 12 weeks of resistance training in young male strength athletes. Linear interpolation of the nitrogen balances (-3.4 and +8.9 g d) suggested a protein requirement of 1.4 to 1.5 g kg d. However, this estimate of requirement cannot be taken as realistic, because the positive nitrogen balance of 8.9 g d would correspond to an increase of lean tissue of about 300 g d. Measurements of body composition showed no changes in lean body mass, creatinine excretion, or biceps muscle nitrogen content in either dietary group. In addition, although there were increases in some measurements of strength, there was no effect attributable to diet. Therefore, the available data do not support the conclusion that the protein requirement for resistance training individuals is greater than that of nonexercising subjects.
Thanks to this study I could represent the MTPs of some muscles on the ear some of them are represented on the lateral surface, as for example the sternocleidomastoid, the pectoralis major and the biceps brachii (Fig. 8.6A). The majority of muscles, however, are represented on the medial surface, such as the splenius capitis, the upper trapezius, the levator scapulae, the triceps brachii and the latissimus dorsi (Fig. 8.6B). Furthermore, some muscles have a double representation on Fig. 8.6 Representation of the myofascial trigger points (MTPs) of some muscles of the neck, shoulder girdle and arm on the lateral surface (A) and on the medial surface (B).

In addition, muscle spasticity will often affect the strength of the opposite muscle group. For example, spasticity in the biceps, which help flex or bend the elbow, may accentuate or increase weakness of the triceps, which help extend or straighten the elbow. It may be difficult for the triceps to generate enough force to overcome the spasticity of the biceps. Closed chain exercises are exercises in which the extremity is fixed and there is motion on both sides of the joint. Examples of closed chain exercises are squats, stair stepping, and push-ups. Open chain exercises are exercises in which the extremity is free to move. Examples of open chain exercises are knee extensions, leg curls, and biceps curls. Both types of exercises have advantages. Closed chain exercises often add an element of balance, which is often appropriate for the person with MS, while open chain exercises are generally safer for people with significant balance difficulties. Because many daily activities...

Overuse of biceps brachii without proper relaxation or a sudden increase in the duration or intensity of training can stress bicipital tendons and result in tendinitis. This injury is common in athletes engaged in throwing sports and also in weightlift-ers, golfers, and rowers. Dry needling acupuncture is very helpful in healing the tendinitis. Needles should be applied directly into the inflamed tendon, the surrounding tissues, the shoulder muscles, and the tender points in the biceps brachii. One session every day for swollen tissues and two sessions per week for pain are recommended.
The hamstrings are composed of three separate muscles the biceps femoris laterally and the semi-tendinosus and semimembranosus medially. The three muscles work together to extend the hip and flex the knee. During running, the hamstrings slow down the leg at the end of the forward swing phase and prevent flexion of the trunk at the hip joint.
A 70-year-old male patient had a fall when on a bus and strained his right biceps brachii muscle. Soon he began to suffer with anterior shoulder pain, weakness, restricted elevation of the arm and also some autonomic phenomena such as numbness of the forearm. After several sessions of physiotherapy had brought no benefit he asked to be treated with acupuncture. Fig. 8.7 NCT for neutralizing a myofascial trigger point in the right biceps brachii muscle and improving range of motion in elevation in a 70-year-old male.
Near Infrared Interactance (NIR or simply Infrared for short) uses the principle of light absorption and reflection to measure body composition. The measurement is taken by placing a fiber optic wand on the belly of the biceps muscle. The wand sends a beam of infrared light into the muscle where shifts in the reflections of the wavelengths are used to estimate total body fat percentage.
