After doing kickboxing for about 5 years and no weight training my body has become a bit unsymmetrical.
Looks like my left arm is much more toned- constant jabbing.
My left pec, bigger. I learned from you guys that there isn't an "upper chest" but my left pec's inner upper corner is easily noticably bigger and it looks like my genes point more towards the horse-shoe shaped pec.
As mentioned, my left tricep seems to be better cut but my right is definietely bigger (I'm right handed so thats natural I guess).
Case in point:
I'm thinking of switching over to dumb bells to do this..train it till my left arm fatigues...should I follow the typica low weight, high rep formula?
EDIT: Is that small muscle of my tricep, the lowest one, the stabilizer?

what ive noticed, everyone will tell you to just lift heavy and it will even out, which is true to an extent
my arms are close to equal in strength, but my right is considerably bigger, theres nothing i can really do
perfect symmetry is not possible, just lift heavy and get it as close as possible. and yes switch to dumbbells
I'm going to do one week barbell and one week dumbbell. Let's see how that goes for a month or so and then I'll make any neccesary changes after that.
As skinny as you are, no one will notice you are not symetrical.
Gain about 50 pounds.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
