I was under the impression that they even out over time, well seems that this is not the case.
mine gets worse as time goes on. a couple years ago they were perfectly even. now my right arm has considerably more definition and is about 1/2" bigger
Genetics are a bitch.
Glad I have good ones.
and genetics have what to do with this?
Lots of DB work if possible. When doing arm exercises, make a point to do an extra rep with the weak/smaller side.
do db reps, and do your weaker arm first. only do as many reps on your stronger arm as you can do on your weaker
Genetics have to do with symmetry
But you probably think you can change the shape of your muscles
where are your studies to show that you genetically will have one side of your chest larger than the other? Shape and size are TWO different things
mine used to be the same size, but the right is a full inch bigger than the left now
Ive been trying exactly that, and making sure i focus on each rep..FUCK
this worked with me. i went from 11.5" and 12.5" arms to both 15"
I think the OP might be refering to shape.
I have unsymmetrical arms because the shape of my left tricep is different and my left bicep has some sort of cave in.
I'm guessing these can be caused by some sort of trama in the past. I'm not sure if tie ins can also affect this.
i.e. asymmetrical abs.
Same thing here... Not only is my left arm nearly a full inch smaller, but the tricep is shaped different.... It is very strange.
Definitely start incorporating bi-lateral exercises and hitting the weaker side first.
For awhile I actually started doing a few more sets for my left side, and it did improve the difference for a time. But a few months after I stopped working more on the weaker side.... the difference was as before.
Maybe I should have specialized on it even longer than I did.
one side of your chest could have a different shape thus making it look smaller.
I learned to masturbate with my left hand.
i masturbate with the weaker arm
maybe im overtraining
I've been told to only do exercises that work both arms at the same time so eventually they will even out because they both get equal work.
link? I think someone on OTFN told me that, and gave me a link to why it was true.
I personaly feel that this is more of a focus/mind to muscle issue than anything. Next time you do a bb curl, do it slowly and realy concentrate on the movement of each muscle..Youll notice your dominant arm has alot more feedback through out the motion
or im that fucked
