    Dilemna - right shoulder stronger

    I mainly see it in incline press and seated press (both with dumbells).

    My dilemna is, when training for strenght, is there any disadvantage to train both arm to their maximum ?

    While maxing on incline press today I was frustrated that the weight felt so heavy on my left arm while it felt light on my right arm... So I decided to finish the movement with my right arm and it felt easy...

    well, if you keep continuing the set like that of course one muscle is going to be stronger. You need to do an extra set or so with lighter weight on the weak shoulder, and after time it should even out. This is a common problem for many people, just has to do with the genetics of muscles and how some have it in them to grow faster than others.
