    and i feel weaker on the left..
    its harder for me to do hammer curls with the left arm.

    another thing i noticed is the right side traps are bigger, but :squint: i use even weight, even form.

    what can i do to not look retarded working only the left side.

    Larger upper traps on one side could mean...

    1. The humeral extensors (lats, teres major) on the opposite side are tight

    2. The quadratus lumborum on the opposite side is tight

    3. The upper traps and levator scapulae themselves are tight

    4. The middle/lower traps are weak on that side or bilaterally

    5. Could be compensation for a functional or structural leg-length discrepancy

    6. It could be a combination of all the aforementioned factors.

    7. It could be a neural deficit to the scapular elevators (i.e. problem anywhere from C2 to C5 or an accessory nerve injury) on the opposite side, so the "big" side only appears "big" relative to the atrophied side

    8. Usually, you'll see a slightly elevated shoulder girdle on the non-dominant side - especially in right-handed individuals. This may be accompanied with a forward shoulder girdle position on that side.

    And probably several more issues
