Issues in the front of your shoulder that aren’t going away with shoulder exercises? Well maybe it’s your bicep tendon! We have 1 bicep tendon that attaches down by the elbow, and another that attaches up in the front of the shoulder that commonly gives us some problems. Each tendon needs to be addressed a different way, so movements in the elbow will address the bottom tendon, while movements through the shoulder will address the top tendon. Here is how we can begin addressing it!
1️⃣ To address the bottom tendon do a traditional bicep curl but stop at 90° and perform an isometric where the angle of your elbow will remain the same but will hold the weight for 30 to 45 seconds.
2️⃣ To address the top tendon in your shoulder region, grab a weight and bend your elbow to 90 degrees. Keeping the elbow angle, begin to rise the arm up as if you are punching the ceiling. Go until your elbow is the same height as your shoulder.
2️⃣ If you want to increase the load on the top tendon, then we can straighten the elbow to reduce the leverage. The elbow bent version was shown mainly because it’s an easier starting point.
