Yikes. That's why I don't lift anything heavier than 16 oz beer.

ironically I was using less than I normally would. After my oral surgery I could not exercise with weights, so since I had not used the weights in a couple of weeks I wanted to ease into it again.

Nearing the end of my 32 year career my opinions didn't carry the weight they once did as new younger and more driven managers tried to leave their mark in the corporate world. I could have worked much longer in a cush'y job but figured retirement would be a lot more satisfying and it is. BTW, the boss that screwed me; he got his later in his career when he was put out to pasture early and with no fan-fair.
Same thing happened to the a--hole who drove me out. Karma!!!

Sorry to hear about this and I hope it gets better to the point you can do whatever you want with it. As we get older doctors start saying things like "this is your new normal."

just read this:
Proximal Biceps Tendon Rupture

A proximal biceps tendon rupture is an injury to the biceps tendon at the shoulder joint. This injury type is the most common type of biceps tendon injury. It is most common in patients over 60 years of age and often causes minimal symptoms.

As stated above, proximal biceps tendon injuries almost always occur to the long head of the biceps tendon. Injuries to the short head of the biceps are essentially unheard of.

This is what I ruptured.

My old job before retirement: It required a daily input as to what percentage of my time was productive and directed towards the goal of our efforts. Most efforts were contractual agreements with National Government Programs that required hourly accountability and were monitored for assurance.

Because of my past’s stringent monitoring of the use of my time, I’m a bit perplexed and interested as to how so many employers have allowed free rein over their employees daily work involvements. Today, it seems as though much of their time is allowed to become personal and consists of significant interfacing on social media throughout the day.

Is this the trend following my years of employment that consisted of harsh consequences if a diversion was detected? Out of curiosity, what does your employer expect and what are your personal requirements?
