    i've been bulling conventional ever since i started, and noticed that my right spinus erectus gets worked harder. i think i'm paranoid or something cause i swear i can see a difference in my left vs right spinus erectus in the mirror, but can't tell cause i have to turn my back when looking at my own back in the mirror. it almost feels like i have scolliosis or something

    then this week, i tried pulling sumo, and i felt that my both sides of my spinus erectus were worked equally. does this suggest anything?

    if my conventinoal pull is working one side harder than the other, what could be wrong with my form?

    just a thought, and this may be completely off-base, but do you use a mixed grip? do you alternate the over and the under hand?

    yes, but i alternate frequently. i'm paranoid of being unbalanced.

    No the same thing happens to me too. My lower back on the right side feels tighter than the left side when I'm done with my deadlifts. My left side still gets tight but not as tight as my right side. I use mixed grip but I switch em up for each set.
