    asymetrical biceps

    I've been lifting for only 3 months.
    Like most people I am right handed, and my right arm is slightly bigger than my left, but they are equal in terms of strength. Is there anything I can do to even my arms up size-wise, or will this happen naturally over time?
    Thanks.

    Just focus on getting stronger, eat well, sleep well, play some sports, and voila - problem solved.

    Do people often look at you and say:

    "DUDE! YOU LOOK SOOOOOOOO WIERD! YOUR RIGHT ARM IS SOOOOOOOOO MUCH BIGGER THAN YOUR LEFT ONE!!!!!! WTF!!!!!"

    If not, don't worry about it... All you can do is hope they even out in time.

    ^^^

    That would be beneficial if there were any noticeable strength difference... He said there was not.. I assume therefore that he does use dumbells and so that is not the problem.

    Eat, get bigger, hope you have been blessed by the symmetrical gods Most people aren't perfectly symmetric... My left pec is shaped differently than my right one. Hehehe

    I was just playing around man.. Didn't mean to offend. There isn't much you can do about it if they are equally strong... Some people just make a huge deal out of it..

    Its ok, I wasn't offended, but I know why you might have thought that. I know a few really "touchy" people and they're a pain in the ass.
