    Im right handed so im stronger at everything on my right side. When I do curls, bench, etc, i can tell my left side has to work a lot harder to keep up with my right side. But how come my left pec is bigger and more formed then my right pec?

    if it actually is then it may me a postural imbalance or something

    If I can get my camera to work I'll post pics but i have no idea when that will be. You say a postural imbalance? It looks bigger then the right no matter what way I stand or pose.

    for me, everything ont he left side is bigger..

    i attribute it to my left side being weaker, which means it has to work harder when pushing the same amount of weight.. working harder -> growing bigger.

    Everyone has a larger side. Possible muscular adaptation over CNS efficiency. Make sure your form is good, posture is good, strength is even, then stop worrying about it.

    I made sure of all those things but they have been uneven for like a year. I have gotten a lot stronger and bigger, its just the 2 pecs won't even out. I worry about it because right when my shirt comes off, people notice. It's not so uneven that it looks bad, it just looks different.

    my left is bigger also, so is my left arm. I always assumed it was from when I hurt my right arm and it was in a full cast for a few months.
