Creatine supplement use has not been associated with triceps rupture. Triceps ruptures have been reported in weightlifters who bench press heavy weight, use anabolic steroids, have a history of local steroid injections to the triceps tendon, patients with renal osteodystrophy, and with use of fluoroquinolone antibiotics.
Rettig reviews the risk factors associated with triceps rupture as described above.
Sollender at al and Stannard et al presented cases of triceps tendon ruptures in weightlifters who used anabolic steroids or had numerous local steroid injections.
Khaliq and Zhanell reviewed fluoroquinolone tendon injury and reported two cases of triceps rupture.
To promote recovery while not overstressing the muscular system, runners should shift away from heavily weighted exercises and focus more on body-weight movements like pushups, pullups, squats, and lunges. For those who still want to use additional weight, it's important to keep the load light and avoid hitting failure. During this phase, runners should go back to a higher-repetition scheme (10-15 reps) while keeping sets moderate (2-3 sets) and rest times short (45-90 seconds). Workouts during this phase should also be short to avoid overtaxing the body. The extra time can be spent with massage, ice baths, and other recovery methods designed to reduce muscle soreness and damage.
Starting Position: In the down position, the wrist is drooping at about 45 degrees and your palms are facing upwards. Your hands should not be horizontal, that’s too awkward. The thumb side of your palm should be about 2″ higher than the pinky side. Now slowly raise the weight to the up position. The forearms remain motionless in this exercise, only the wrists move.
Ending Position: In the up position, the wrist is angled upward at about 45 degrees. The palms are still facing upward. Now lower the dumbbells slowly and repeat.
