Need Help With Muscle Problems

Any help here will be much appreciated,


Well i have to say i am quite muscular but my abs on my right side arent the same to my left and im not sure which was to go to more to level it because im not sure if its opposite way is opposite muscles but can anyone tell which way i use to get my right side level,

Crunch Situps to the side.
Bicycle Manuveur
Russian Twists

They should all be the same

And also, as i said im quite muscular but the other muscle problem i have which is by far the more important one to me is my biceps are no where compared to the rest off my body and im trying really hard to get the right workouts for them can anyone tell me the best few bicep workouts?


Thanks, Judokas

according to some people in other threads, some people genetically will have one side of their abs more developed than their other. Now I don't know if that's true, so I'd like others with more knowledge to back up (or strike down) that theory.

As for your biceps, what do you do for your biceps? I would think that bicep curls with dumbells and barbells would do the trick. Also, you can do pull ups too.

For your biceps, the key is variety.

Trying grabbing a bar and doing curls only half way up (so your upper arm & forearm create a 90 degree angle). Do this 7 times. Immediately after that do 7 more going all the way up but not don't bring it down past 90 degrees. After that do 7 full bicep curls.

So it should be like this, 7 lower half curls, 7 upper half curls, then 7 full curls. That is ONE set. Be sure you don't use weight that is too heavy for you to complete one set.

When you do curls with bars, try putting your hands at different widths because you want to work the outside part and inside part of the biceps. Experiment!

Also do hammer curls. Grab dumbbells and do curls where you don't twist your wrists. The motion is similiar to hammering something with a hammer. This exercise works out a part of the biceps that is often ignored by many other bicep exercises.

Also, try laying on an incline bench and doing curls with dumbbells. This is great because you can't rock your body to help you with the curls and there's a bigger range of motion for your arms.

Hope these all made sense!
