Why do my biceps feel bruised?


Answer by  thisguy (27)

It's natural for your biceps to feel bruised after you have done an intensive work out. It is important to have a protein intake about 30 minutes after your workout. This lets the body repair muscle damage from working out. A good source would be milk or whey protein powder.

If you have been working out moreso than usual or have been using your arms for other physical activity it can cause your muscles to become sore and even tender to the touch. This is fairly normal and shows they are building more muscle mass, but if thats not the case, you should seek medical advice for the cause.

Have you been hit in the biceps the past few weeks? It's possible that you're just now feeling the effects. Strenuous activities involving the bicep muscles may also have strained the muscles which is causing the discomfort. Try to rest for a few days and see if the discomfort disappears.

A bruised biceps could be due to muscle tears if you have overexercised or lifted something too heavy. It could also be due to a direct injury like a ball hit or a fall that hurt the muscle. This could be due to a small bleed into the biceps. Cramps could also cause a bruised feeling.
