This may be biceps “stringing”. The more stress you induce the more the muscles tighten during recovery periods. Since swimming involves no eccentric contractions the muscle will shorten during hard training periods and tighten which will lead to soreness.

describe your “dynamic stretching”. Be specific.

Start with slower work (50’s @ 200 pace) first then move into faster sets. Do sprint work every other day.
