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?

    Lifter In Need Of Advice

    Hello everyone, I'm new th the WBB boards, and I'm stumped on something at the moment:

    I started to weight train about 9-11 months ago, and I've seen a lot of improvements since then. Being a scrawny little 15 year old kid since then (I know I'm a little young...), pretty much any kind of muscular build would have been awesome. I worked out at the school gym for the most part.

    Anyways, here's the little slight problem. Ever since I had to start weight training, one of my biceps/pectorials always seems to be a little larger/stronger, whatever. I don't know, but I must favour one arm more than another even though I try to maintain a consistent form with each arm and keep the bar steady when benching.

    This has always been a problem, but its just getting worse, one arm is gradually getting large while one is just bursting. What's going on?

    I've actually tried that several times. I've really felt it more in the left arm (smaller one) on a lot of my workouts and still ended up coming without any improvements in comparison to my right arm. Chest wise, it's reversed . My left side is larger than the right... ?

    Don't know if this helps... But whatever...
