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?

    Left bicep

    Hey guys. I havent posted in this thread.......in months I'm guessing. Since I started reading lyles books and getting a hold of other bodybuilding books/info (dont forget from this site) I havent really had anymore questions.

    Anyways. I've been bulking for about 4 months now with pretty good results. Right now I'm doing a short PSMF and I've noticed how terrible my left arm looks in comparison to my right. When I'm full (carbed up) they look the same. When someone asks you to show your "muscles" you do a double front bicep pose. My left short head (i think thats it) just isnt as "long" as my right arm. So if I gave a most muscular pose they look fine. I've been doing preacher curls to try and fix this problem but it hasent worked as well as I'd hope. Maybe I just need more time? I've only been doing preacher curls for 2months. I'm thinking maybe to superset dumbell and EZ bar preacher curls?? Maybe that will catch up my left bicep. Anyone with any similar problems let me know how you fixed it. All my other major bodyparts are on track thanks to built

    Well, you haven't been reading in here enough if you don't know the answer to this

    You can't change the shape/look of muscles by using different exercises. You can only make them bigger. If one arm is lagging then the best approach is to use DB's. This is because the bigger/dominant arm will tend to work harder during BB exercises.

    No need for extra exercises...

    i have the same deal, my right bicep is bigger than my left and i db curl the same ammount of weight, i think they are almost identical in strength but they look different, i think its just genetics, look at jay cutler and ronnie coleman, their left and right biceps look different also.

    Yeah... If strength is the same there isn't really much you can do I guess.

    in fact, i know my right tricep is stronger than my left and my left one is bigger, so it can go either way.

    My right bicep is a little smaller than my left but not too much.
