No this isn’t about bodybuilding.
Hoping to hear other people weigh in on this. Here’s what I’m wondering:
When you flex your lower back for example, does it feel the same on both sides of your body? Do you feel the same muscles flexing? Is the tension roughly equal? Do you feel the same pressure applied to the same areas?
What about for other muscles?
My lower back feels completely different on the left than the right. Almost like the muscles aren’t even the same. My right shoulder and right bicep are like that as well to a lesser degree. They don’t hurt (usually), but they just feel different than the other side.
It’s the places where I had injuries. Some to the left side of my lower back, one to my right shoulder, and one to my right bicep. These have been anywhere from months ago to many years ago. There’s no pain, but the places that got injured have never, ever felt the same as the other, uninjured side. Is that just sort of how it works?
