    Is this the case with anyone else?

    I am right-handed, yet my left arm and generally the left side of my body is a little big bigger than than the, dominant, right side.

    Kinda weird, considering my left side often fails before my right side when in the gym :coolugh:

    Yes. My left biceps is a little bigger than my right, and I'm right handed.

    I've been doing DB work for a while now to try and make everything even again.

    You work your left harder, so it grows faster. Fatigue has nothing to do with it, just the sheer fact that ur always pushing hardest with that one, even when it fails.

    My left arm and peck is bigger than my right side. I always figured it was from when I injured my right arm and had it in a cast for a month or so.

    Maybe due to scoliosis? My chiropractor tells me one side of my back is more developed than the other due to minor scoliosis when I was young.

    i always did one-sided exercises at first with the left side and then with the right but never did more reps with the right than with the left... so it evened out pretty much...

    i never get those guys who start with right side, pump out 10 reps and then change to left and only get 4-5 reps :dunno:
