    Hey guys, just wanted to ask your opinion on a problem I have been having on my workouts. My right arm is significantly stronger than my left, so when I am using the bench my arms won't be straight. My left gives out much more quickly than the right. So my right is usually supporting the weights much more than the left. Any suggestions on what I could do to help even out the sides? I want to get everything worked out before I move onto heavier weights.

    do db benchpresses, and stop when your left arm can't do any more

    Would I just divide the amount I bench including the bar by 2 and use the dumbbells in that weight or would I be doing less?

    probably less... less stabilization with a bar compared to 2 dumbells.

    I've even tried jerkin it with my left instead of my right, but that didn't seem to help much.:mamoru:
