Lack of Symetry is really bugging me out

  1. Lack of Symetry is really bugging me out


    Hat do I do to bring lagging muscles up
    I do train alternates
    But it's not bringing them up???


  2. Unilateral exerices

  3. Train other body parts less and focus on lagging ones.

  4. Train them harder not just more.

  5. It's strange because I am predominantly left sided. Footed/handed
    Yet my right side appears better developed.
    Don't seem to get the same pump from curls leg press calf raise etc

    Cheers for your posts

  6. That is because your left side is more coordinated. Your right side has to work harder. I notice this with my calves.

  7. More unilateral work and increased frequency.

    The majority of people are this way. Unless you make a concerted effort to use both sides of your body in everyday activities the same, symetry will be slightly off. I've been having to make sure I carry my 1 year old son equally on both arms. I usually carry him on my right side and my right arm is noticebly smaller when I flex.

  9. Can't beat unilateral training. Briefcase deadlifts worked wonders on my glute and hams

  10. Try switching to dumbbell exercises where possible. Over time it should help to even out your development.

    Savvy observation, sir. When my children were of the carrying age I tended to carry them with my left arm. To this day my left arm is considerably smaller than my right arm HOWEVER, my left arm is noticeably stronger than my right arm. Kinda ridiculous.

    To the OP - Some of us are just blessed with ridiculous symmetry. Some of us are not. Consider the study that found that women are more attracted to men (even without them knowing it) who have the most symmetry in their faces (I think I recall that Tom Brady's left and right side were around 96 percent the same). Likely you're one of the few who actually notices that you're asymmetric to any large extent. I broke a collar bone when I was 6 and the two sides of my upper half (from the breaking/healing point) couldn't be more different. Nobody notices unless I point it out. Peace, man!
    All Business.

  12. Your dominant side is more coordinated. The other side has to work harder to do the same tasks. Which is why it is larger.
