    you posted before some of the common reasons why one trapezius muscle seems to grow a lot more than the other... it happens with me, as i've posted before.. what i dont understand is that my left side doesnt feel any weaker than my right when i am doing unilateral movements.. but when i flex them, my right blows up and my left just sits there.. wtf is going on? you can even see i when my traps are relaxed:

    [​IMG]

    help? :hs:

    the right side rounds over, and the left side dips.. wtftraps
    and when my g/f or whatever massages me, she always comments on how the left side is significantly smaller than the right :wtc:

    edit: maybe its just the dragon trying to escape :run:

    You propoably carry/pick up a lot more things in your right hand than left.

    Just start working out and do a lot of shrugs, deads, etc...

    :werd: I hate that feeling after carring a lot of stuff in one arm, so I'll purposely alternate to try and feel symetrical.

    my left is a lot smaller than my right even though i can move the same weight. i can't get the proper shrug "feel" in my left trap like my right

    my right was becoming considerably smaller than the left.... So when working traps I would do my normal routine of upright rows, machine shrugs, and straight bar shrugs....but when I was doing shrugs with dumbells and plates I would make a point to do 15 or so more reps on the right side (smaller side) for every set.

    After about a months of doing this I began to notice them evening out more.

    I have the same problem with my lats. My right lat is well-formed and good sized while my left trap is what I call a "baby trap." :hs:

    I got uneven traps too. Also, If i did a front double bicep pose my right side would be way lower than my left. I have no business posing though (fatty). I'm pretty sure my problem is a curved spine.

    edit: dislocated my left shoulder back in dec but pretty sure i had the prob before.
