I apologize if I posted this in the wrong forum. Ever since I hit pubery my right arm has been slightly bigger and much stronger than my left. I've been weight training for about six weeks and have noticed that both my arms are slightly bigger and stronger, yet my left arm is still smaller and weaker than my right. Can anyone give me some advice on how to balance this out? Thanks.
They'll probably balance out just fine on their own.
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

I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
Sometimes I do an extra set of rows, lat raises, db curls, kickbacks, etc. on my left arm in an attempt to bring up the strength. I don't know if this makes much of a difference, but it helps me feel a little more "balanced". Everyone has one side that's more dominant and there's nothing we can do to change that.
What paul said. give it time.
it will balance out in time
you know what does suck though? having your left arm be about almost an inch shorter than your right.
sucks ass while doing shrugs on a smith machine.
My bis are a lot smaller then my tris =( Don't seem to be balancing out themselves =(
Oh left bi is smaller smaller then right bi (quite a bit) Left pec is larger then right pec (also by a noticable amount)
Don't look at me im hidious!!!! *hides* hehe eveyone's got their problems =) Just throw more isolation moves into your training if you want to be more symetrical =) Well that's working for me
spawn there's that much difference in your arm length? geeze
