I am a fairly active, right handed, 53 year old male. Back in February 2009, I had my right bicep tendon reattached to my elbow. I followed all of the PT protocols and was allowed to return to all normal activities within the typical time frame.
While I was aggressive with my exercises during the PT phase, I have not done much to strengthen the bicep since then. I find that my right bicep, while getting firmer as time goes on, is still no where as near as firm as my left. I also find that my right bicep gets tired/sore after raking leafs, shoveling snow and prolonged lifting (not weight lifting, but boxes, ladders, etc.)
While I feel that I can still lift as much weight with my right arm as I always have, it just seems generally "weaker".
I assume that there are some simple exercises that I can do to strengthen the bicep, but I'm not sure what they are. i.e. How much should I be curling? How many reps? Every day or something different every other day? Those types of questions.
I still have the rubber tubes that I used during PT. Are there exercises that I can use them for?
Any (specific) advice would be appreciated.
