You didnt specify how long ago you last tore your bicep...the only phsio you are going to be able to do is...go light, and give it time....I know you dont want to hear this, but the majority of lifters who have torn their biceps have only done it once, maybe twice in a lifetime...4 or 5 times is unheard of...bottom line most probabley is....you are juicing, your strength is surpassing your tendon and bicep strength....unfortunatley your tendons, ligaments, etc cannot support the amount of stress that you are putting on them....I have seen way too many powerlifters who constantly pull tendons or get tears in the muscle....sometimes the muscle will heal back stronger(kinda like bones become stronger after they have been broken). Alot of times, a tear in the muscle is an indicator as to how much stress your muscle will take....that is it's threshold. If you have torn them 4 or 5 times, you need to give them plenty of time to heal with lighter weights for probabley about a year...then slowly start getting back into the heavier weights....did you tear them doing deads?
