    Hello.

    Well, a few years ago I broke my left arm twice in the same place, and came to rely heavily on my right arm. As a result, I used mainly my right, and even long after (although I dont think I even really noticed...) my left arm is significantly weaker. Even lifting with both, my right takes most of the weight.

    Using arm curl machines also resulted in being dependant on my right, ack.

    So, Anyone have any recommendations on specific excersizes I could do with free weights or something to increase the strength in my left arm? Thanks!

    Yeah, aren't free weights the same thing as dumbbells?
    I'm looking for specific techniques.

    use a weight that your weakest arm can take until they catch up.

    Just follow a normal arm routine but use dumbells to isolate.
