I’ve been lifting for about 8 months and started getting taped to record progress. I’m right handed, and I noted my right arm is consistently 1/2" bigger than my left, both at the peak of the bicep and at the “meaty” part of the forearm.
I’ve done quite a bit of one armed exercises and done equal reps with both sides trying to overcome this, but it seems to stay a pretty constant 1/2"
What’s the best way to work on getting more symetrical?[/quote]
The answer: Train more than 8 months
Seriously, that is largely a beginner issue because many aren’t used to using both sides of their body for larger tasks. One side always dominates. You overcome that by continuing to train, continuing to build size until there isn’t much of a discrepancy. In your everyday life, you stop carrying your book bag on only one arm, carrying all of the groceries with one hand or using the dominant to scratch your nuts.
My guess is, you need to work on size and realize that if your arms really haven’t grown much, how much change do you expect without any significant increase in muscle mass?
