My left chest bigger than right, HELP!

I have been working out equally yet my left chest is still growing bigger than my right chest. Can someone help me out. So now do I put more weight on my right arm or something when bench pressing?

yea thats the only thing I can think of though do not make it more then a 10 pound difference max.. I'd stay at a 5 pound difference.. it will not be over night but it should slowly catch up.. if not see a doctor.. which I suggest first you might have a muscle tear or something your not aware of..

Rush has a little shameless behaviour in the past
One hand weight lift liek doublelegtakedown says I think would work perfect for this problem.

actually it would be best to keep the SAME weight in each hand. That means you should stop using barbell and switch to arm isolated exercises. When your weaker half gets tired, thats the end of the set. that means your stronger half wont be worked as hard and ultimately will not grow as fast. eventually you will even out.

until you have more experience lifting, I recommend isolation in all your workouts. (i.e single leg leg raises, single arm curls, single arm presses, etc)

Beginners should not be using isolation techniques, that is incorrect. Simple, compund movements are the best for beginners. Presses, Rows, Squats. Once the body becomes acclimated to muscle growth, then more advanced movements should be used; i.e. isolation.


Do not use different weights for each hand. Your muscles will even out over time.
