In brief: Cold

If it is acute- shortly after exercise- ice works better. Be sure you are drinking enough water. After a couple of days, heat may help.

In brief: Ice

In my opinion ice is superior. It works on trigger point, decreases inflammation and you will be able to use the muscle and ultimately get back to normal.
I do lots of manipulations on biceps and ice is part of my work.
