    Hey bros, I been lurking on here for awhile now, looked at all the facts and developed my own workable routine. Im 5'9 and went from 240lbs to about 165lbs in 1 year or so. Right now, I've been keeping steady at 165 and am working on muscles in my legs, abs, back, chest, shoulders and arms. One problem I have though is that my left arm has always been weaker than my left. This is definitely noticable when I do arm exercises and I can see that my right arm is developing more rapidly than the left. I've been doing equal amounts of exercises on both arms and Im afraid that this trend will continue, what are some ways to alleviate this problem? Thanks in advance brolys. :wavey:

    yeah I hate when my left grows faster than my left ibedit

    you are right handed, it's gonna happen. No one is perfectly symetrical with the exception of flex wheeler

    my right arm is stronger than my left, but I'm left handed. I think its because over the years I started to like the stranger more and more and eventually my left hand stopped getting action.

    I've noticed the same thing. 2 days ago at the gym I noticed when doing various curls that my left arms form isnt quite as good as the right. So I am going to focus hard on left arm form and maybe the left will catchup (its not far behind).

    yeah, just use db's and work the left side first. Do the same number of reps with the right, and it will catch up.
