I started lifting and dieting seriously about a year and a half ago. I gained 30 pounds, to 170 from 140. I felt great and make continuous size and strength improvements.
I injured a tendon in my right armpit area and was forced to take a month off of bench press. Shoulders and triceps still felt fine to exercise and I continued with the rest of my routine, legs, pulling, etc.
I got back into it slowly increasing weight 10 pounds per week on bench after my month off to make sure I was healed. All was well, so I dove back in last week.
I’m not sure what has happened, or why I didn’t notice this before, but my entire left side has shrunk a huge amount. Left lat, trap, tricep, forearm, pec have shrunk and are weaker than my right side. I don’t think this is as easy as doing an extra rep on the left side to correct. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Lifting is my life now and I’m completely lost as to what to do as I can’t get a good workout in anymore with how imbalanced I am.
