Left/Right Arm: Serious Imbalance?


#1

i have no clue what a real imbalance looks like, and I could just be how i am posing, but is my right and arm difference a serious imbalance? 6 month something update btw.


#2

Looks bigger on the right for sure. Use dumbbells a lot more and start all arm exercises on the smaller side first.


#3

I don't think it should be too much of a problem. Sooner or later the weaker side will have to adapt to the load the other one receives, and eventually it should balance out.


#4

Yeah use dumbbells more often so the dominant arm isn't going to take over as it is inclined to do with barbells etc. I wouldn't worry too much though everyone to an extent has one arm larger than the other.

So don't sweat it too much stick to your main goals and just add in a mental sub goal of getting your other arm more up to par.

great improvement, keep at it man


#6

Your imbalance makes me feel better about mine. Same deal, right bigger than left, but not to the same degree. I switched to dumbbell pressing and rows, it has helped.
