Alright..so lately I've been noticing that my left arm has been slightly higher than my right arm when it comes to bench pressing. It's not like I do it purposely. I try to stay as even as possible but it seems as though my left arm has much more power. BUT, the weird thing is that I'm not left handed. If anything, shouldn't my left arm be the one that tires out first? I don't get it.
Hella weird..today, I was doing a rep of 10 and on the 8th one, my left arm pushes the bar up but then my right arm suddenly dies. All my power felt hella drained..my right arm went limp..and the right side of the bar literally dropped. Thank god I had a spotter or else the the plate would've dropped.
I'm actually too scared to workout by myself now when doing my bench presses because of this type of occurence. It's not the first time that it happened...I just never got around to coming to this board to ask about it.
What the hell is wrong with my guys?
Thanks in advance.

when you train your arms do u work ur left harder than ur right?
Here is your answer: for the next few months, switch it up. Do only Dumbbell exercises for your upper body. Do a dumbbell bench press, dumbbell inclines, dumbbell bent rows, dumbbell curls, and dumbbell tricep extensions (assuming you do these exercises, otherwise just do th ones that apply). No more barbells for you until your arms are equal I would say. The cool thing about the dumbbell bench press is that if one arm gives out, you can just let go of the weights and they merely drop off to your sides onto the floor, nobody is hurt and no big deal. Try it out, it worked for me. My left arm used to be about 2 inches smaller than my right. Thanks to dumbbell and only dumbbell exercises, my arems are equal now.
