just wanted to ask a question cos it looks a bit odd.
when I tense my left trapezius seems to be bigger is this just a normal thing and continuing to build up it will even out or should I try and counter the effects.
if so any recomendations to even it up quicly?
Keep lifting heavy. It should eventually even out, and you're probably the only one to notice. Dont try to counter the effects by lifting lighter on one side and heavier on the lagging side.... then you'll end up with two weak traps instead of one strong and one slightly less strong.
just keep shrugging, cleaning, snatching, or whatever you do
ya man... dusting and vacuuming are killer on the traps. j/k i love doing hang cleans, just for fun, but they are a good excercise tooOriginally posted by unshift
thanks for teh advice. i'll carry on as per usual then.
if its still as like it in a couple of months or so i'll take some pics and if you can notice it, it wont be be me imagine things.
i noticed the same on me awhile back. it went away when i did barbell shrugs as well as db's.
The Big 3 (2 sets):
Flat BB Bench 270
Deadlift 355 (no belt/straps)
You can always lower the weight just a bit and focus your mental energy on the lagging side. In time you'll catch up and even out.
Best way to cheat on deadlifts...
Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
