I would also stay away from transfats and bad oils, which is good for overall health. Saunas and sweating may help a bit although i don't of data. Ask doc about it. ...Read more

There is nothing you can do to accelerate the healing other than rest the muscle and do not overuse it. ...Read more

Can you suggest how to get good triceps and biceps?

Can you suggest how to get good triceps and biceps?

Work them: Do different types of curls and extensions. Eat right. And keep changing up your workout routine. Your muscles get 'used to' the same work out, so it is best to keep changing the exercises that you do. Use heavier weights with less reps. From personal experience, triceps are very tough muscles to bulk up. And they are even tougher to maintain. So keep at it. Good luck. ...Read more

How do you get biceps and triceps to 'fill out' instead of being just 'bulges'?

Keep at it: The best thing to do is concentrate on curls and extension exercises of different types. Use heavier weights and less reps to get bulk... Rather than lighter weights with more reps -which is better for trimming down on flabby arms. Be sure to eat right.
From personal experience... Triceps are difficult to 'fill out.' they are tough to get bulky, and tough to maintain the bulkiness. Good luck. ...Read more
