Tricep muscle fibers

04/09/2003

Question:

I have been lifting weights for 6 uyears now. Recentely I noticed when I flex my tricep muscle, I can feel the muscle fibers pulling apart inside. The location is on the outside of my tricep. It dosen`t hurt, and it is not painful to the touch. It is just irretating and I don`t know what caused. I noticed after I had done a few tricep extension. It has been over a month now. Shouldn`t it have healed by now.

Answer:

You should consult with your personal physician to rule out injury to the muscle.
