    Uneven chest problem

    As the tittle of the thread states, my chest is uneven and I need help correcting it. My left pec is larger than my right. When doing chest exersizes (normal, flat bench, incline, even dumbells) the left pec muscle always feels as if it's worked harder, and the left pec stays sore for a longer period. I know that soreness is not a measure of progress, but my left pec is larger than and is continuing to grow faster than my right pec. My benching form is correct, my back stays planted on the bench, my grip is even, and I hold the bar parallel through all reps. This is making my chest seriously asymetrical. I can see the difference when I look in the mirror, even with a shirt on. I don't want to walk around with a beast of a left pec and a flat, insignificant right pec. Could someone please help me out here.

    Just keep liftin' and eating. If you're lifting with good form then the one shouldn't get even more larger than the other.

    They should even out as you get bigger.

    Someone asks this question almost every day. lol

    Actually, it really isn't that bad. We are our own greatest critics and I just get errked when I don't feel the muscles were evenly worked. I overexaggerated when I said you can see that they're asymetrical in the mirror. I guess the fact that I can feel the difference annoys me. I'll post a pic tomorrow, it's 12:20 AM on the east coast, I need to go to sleep.

    My first impulse was simply to search, but for some reason, my search requests returned errors or nothing at all (as in the page doesn't change, the tab just says loading for a few seconds then returns to what it said before, nothing happens). I didn't want to be redundant, but the lack or a working search forced me to.
