    Ok well I just started lifting. Just light stuff really, trying to just get in the habit and totally digging it. Cant believe i didnt start sooner.


    Well anyway my left arm is considerably smaller than my right. You can visibily see the difference.

    Whats the best way to even this out? Stop lifting with my right and just work the left?

    Thx for any responses.

    Most people are the same. Don't worry about it.
    Uni lateral training and using dumbells would definitely help.

    And later down the road specifically doing extra sets for the weak side would be an option though I'm uncertain if that would be good for you at this early stage.

    I'm no expert but I think you would be just hurting yourself if you did less with one arm. My arms are the same way.. I've heard just keep lifting like you normally do and they will even out with time. Mind you they will probably never be exactly the same as one arm is dominant but it can be close.
