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 gun has a smaller caliber

    For sh1ts and giggles, I measured my biceps last night so I can monitor the growth. Lo and behold, the right bicep was 15", but the left one was almost an inch smaller . Is this somewhat normal? What can be done about it? Do I start doing left arm DB curls for a while ?

    Welcome to the club. My left is shaped completely different than my right as well as being/looking smaller. But they are both the same strength.

    Yep... me too. Only the odd thing is my right side is smaller even though I'm right handed. As for why? - My theory is my right arm is used more for everyday activities, being right handed, so I may have developed more slow twitch fibers in my right arm. I'm currently adding an couple extra sets to bring righty up to speed with lefty. I get some odd looks in the gym.

    my theory is that the less comon u use ur muscle, the faster it'lll grow, size and strenght. every muscle on my left (cept biceps) is bigger than the right side.

    lol, genetics and muscle structure are a wonderful thing *sarcasm out the ass*.. There isnt muuch you can do about them man, everyone has some sort of imperfection, even the pro's, its called symetry and nobody has it perfect..

    Even arnold's biceps were asymetric. He says its because he always flexed his right bicep in the mirror so he made strides to flex the left one more to grow it (allow more blood and nutrients into the muscle to let it grow)
