Mindis, great work, and Max is right, you are ripped, I had to show this to my girlfriend to prove not all powerlifters are fat. Keep up the great numbers.

I'm curious as whether or not direct arm work would deter many of these bicep tears. I don't have any stats but it seems back in the 70s and 80s there was less bicep tears on deadlifts due to many lifters back then training like bodybuilders but with an emphasis on the powerlifts. J Hack. ... all things are possible to him that believeth.

One thing I did not do while prepping for this meet (4months) is reg bicep curls (did a lot of hammer curls).. Also having very low bodyfat for this meet may have contributed to the injury..

[/quote] The body fat may have contributed. I have noticed when I don't do barbell curls I can feel tension in my biceps when Deadlifting. I took a technique from the perfect curl (which is leaning back when you start the curl and leaning forward as it comes up, the complete opposite of a cheat curl) that fully stresses the bicep in the bottom position. I do half a perfect curl and half cheat curl where I lean back at the start and stay back through the whole set. The reason I do this is so I can get that stretch at the bottom but can use some real weight that perfect curls don't allow. If you try to lean forward as the weight comes up the amount of weight you can use goes way down. Also stretching the bicep AFTER working out goes a long way. I do a basic shoulder stretch in a power rack but turn my thumb down instead of up which really puts a good stretch on it, it's like arm-barring yourself. You'll need to use the bar holders or safety bars that go through the rack to keep your arm from sliding down the rack and put some chalk on your wrist too.
