Very uneven pecs, help fixing?
 
I have a problem with my pecs being very uneven. The dominate side is about twice the size. I have perfect form, and so on. So I don't get why the left one won't grow.

I've tried stopping countless times and using DBs or mixing it up, but nothing works.
The left pec has never been torn or otherwise injuried.


What are some good ways to fix this?

Try doing 5-10lbs less on your weaker side till your right catches up.

Is it just appearance? Or does your weak side give out faster?

One arm dumbell flyes, one arm db bench press, one arm incline db bench press.

My right is bigger, but not really stronger.

I can do 50 pound DBs on both sides, as I can a 100 BB.

Is adding 5 more pounds to my left (smaller) side and doing some DB work a good idea?

DONT put more weight on one side of the barbell, just do the shit I told you to do.

You mean that only- or extra? How long should it take?

Im just saying dont do BB Bench Press and put more weight on one side, just do One Arm DB bench presses for your weak side

k, got that.

Should I work the bigger side during the time? Or start again when they're even?

Should I do say 10 sets of five, then add 3x5 for the weaker side in addition?

Yeah, do something like 5 sets of 5 with both dumbells or even a barbell, then do a set or 2 with just one arm (the weaker one). Actually, I would suggest doing the set or 2 with the weaker arm first

I did 5 sets of 3 tonight with a barbell. Then a 2x5 incline (I felt lazy tonight)
Then I went wild with the dumbbell. I worked the 3 levels with it and did 5x3 on the weaker one with the dumbbell.

I did it second, but I'll try going first like you said. What's the reason behind that?
