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?

    Use dumbells, and give it time. If your left is failing quite a few reps before the right, do a set just with your left. I've done this with wrist curls. But mainly give it time.

    Mikey, have the same prob. My right bicep is approx a half inch smaller than my left, though it is also more defined than the left. Currently working this problem out and it really is not a big concern for me right now. Though I must say that it is not physically weaker, I think it is just something to do with genetics in which some muscles grow faster or bigger than others and those others can get more cut and defined than the other faster.

    I doubt you will ever get both sides equal in strength. I wouldn't worry about it too much, as it's pretty much a common occurrence across the board.
