Golf Has Me Asymmetrical

I’ve been playing golf for nine years and it has made my body asymmetrical. Specifically my obliques. My left side is so defined and cut compared to my right side due to my being a right handed golfer. Should I completely neglect my obliques on the left side of my body and only train my right side in order to achieve some symmetry? I mean this just looks retarded at the moment.

I’m sure your right lat is a little bigger too, isn’t it? Mine is, I’m sure at least partially because of golf.

Side bends would help hypertrophy your right side. That’s the only decent oblique isolation movement I know of, though.

cool, I’ll give those a try. Should I not even train my left side though??
