You will have better coordination in your right hand. This may partly account for the greater strength in the right arm. Strength is not simply a matter of muscle size.

Looking big btw.

yes i understand that, but its just weird how the body can react but do you think i should lift heavier on the right with say DB curls and skull crushers? well thanks for the imput and complament

Looks like the bulk is going well for you. I had heard somewhere that your dominant side (right side if you're right handed) will be smaller because you always use your off-side to hold heavy things while you use your more agile hand to do things. Ex: I am always holding the grocery bags in my left hand while I unlock the car/house with my right.

Your arms look fine:thumbup: . You will always have one arm slightlly bigger than the other it's normal. I would focus on doing more bar curls rather than bumbbell this should help even your arms out. You're looking solid nevertheless.

It depends upon whether you're training for aesthetics, or function. If it's function, don't worry about it, and train both sides evenly. If it's for aesthetics - not that you'll ever plan on stepping on stage - you will have to train the smaller side more to get it to even out.
