    i been working out and doing the mac drill. Notice huge improvements in my power hitting. And this morning notice a small sore bruise near my armpit on my bicep. Did I pull my bicep, and should I stop the mac drill before ripping it. Never had this happen to me.

    It sounds like a micro tear. I would stop and allow this to recover.
    That area is actually common for bicep tears.
    I tore BOTH of Mine toward the lower part of the elbow and they bruised VERY badly when they were injured.
