Unbalanced Muscles

My right bicep is larger than my left bicep, and my left pectorals larger than my right. The exercises I perform incorporate both arms simultaneously with the same weights and reps. Is there any way I can balance my muscles?

Unbalanced Muscles

Sometimes you will find that the muscle on one side is larger than on the other. This may be genetic, but most likely has to do with doing certain activities on that side. For instance, tennis players often find that their dominant arm is larger than the other. To correct this, work with dumbbells or machines that let you work one arm or leg at a time. Work both sides, but do one or two more sets for the smaller side than for the larger side.
