The overtightening of a muscle can be compared to the overtightening
of a bolt. The engineering rule of thumb is that if the bolt does
not break when being tightened for the first time, it probably (90%
chance) won't break until very much later (certainly far later
than 10 loading cycles). My 2 cents favours an early muscle tear.
