Do you understand that muscles and tendons have a reciprocal relationship to one another?

I worked with a hand surgeon during a college internship and never do severed tendons return to previous strength levels a 20 percent reduction in strength will be a safe estimation at this point and the effects that has on flexor strength will be felt tremenously.

Put it this way a bicepital tendon rupture can be devastaing on the tricep why? well during eccentric loading of the tricep there is no antagonist support and now the tricep is overloaded to the point where it cant work to its same capacity . So now the Tricep can only handle loads that are lighter hence weakening the triceps.
