The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Okay, I have no problem gaining mass in any part of my body really, but I've noticed that even after putting on a lot of mass the ENTIRE left side of my body is a slight bit smaller than the right. I mean my left pec, left bicep, left lat... everything except my legs. I think it may be due to using too heavy of weights and bad form earlier on in the year... what do you guys think? Is there any way to correct this!? I'd hate to work really hard for like 2 or 3 more years and end up w/ a really nice right side and a really weak left side. It seems on barbell excercises, no matter how strict I am w/ form that my left side never quite gets worked as good as my right... but I really don't want to give up my barbell excercises! What should I do? (P.S. I don't even own a pair of dumbells right now...)

    ok..my question is....

    are you possibly magnifying a minor imbalance? I mean most human bodies are asymmetrical from one side to the other. It might just be genetics.

    However....either way, I agree with yates....isos. Don't know that it will make a huge difference....but it might help out some.

    I'm about 5'11", 200lbs. My right bicep is 15" and left is around 14-1/2 to 14-3/4. I think I'm going to buy some dumbell handles this weekend, b/c I just spent like 1400 and a cage and other stuff and it would be a shame to join and gym and waste all this good equipment.

    Asymetry is completely normal, everyone has it to varying degrees. I don't think you need to worry about it just yet.

    That would be quite a difference and you should join a freak show.
