Alright… At 17, with a very lean, ectomorphic body, I became sick of being 6’1" and 150 lbs. - so I began heavy lifting with an altered diet.
…And already: rapid growth. It’s beautiful!
However (and I’m sure everyone saw this coming), I had some Polaroids taken of my body so I could pinpoint areas that need “extra assistance,” and I saw something that really bothered me: my left pectoral is less developed than my right.
Now, I’ve come up with all sorts of theories to explain this. The one that really sticks out in my mind, though, is this: all those push-ups and fooling around with weights when I was young and in gym class - having no concern with concepts like “good form” and “cheating” - led me to squirm and twist and finish that rep with my dominant, right arm/pec doing most of the work. So, as one might assume, my left pec ended up literally smaller than my right. And not only is there a difference in size, but definition as well: while I have virtually no visible upper-pectoral on either side, the lower pectoral of my right side is very well defined while my left side remains, well… very “smooth” and underdeveloped.
Obviosly this is a problem I'd like to correct, and that's why I'm posting this message: I'd like to see what everyone thinks. I was thinking of doing all my future pec work with dumbells, so as to force each pec to do its own duty, while maybe even increasing the weight of my left arm's dumbell a slight 5 lbs. or so. My common sense tells me that this will stimulate more growth in my left pectoral, therefore "evening out" my look. I would base my weight and estimate my repitions all around the left dumbells' weight, so as not to cause any damage. But, then again, I've never heard of anyone else doing something like this before (not to mention someone with this problem before), and the last thing I want to do is dig myself deeper into this situation.
Any comments or suggestions would be immensly helpful… and I know this is a weird question ;).
