    Omg! I have the same issue! I looked in the mirror the other day and started freaking out! Like wth?!? I figured it was because my rotator was jacked up on my left shoulder and so I wasn't working it as hard. My friend told me to do more reps on my weak side and maybe a heavier weight. Also, stick to just dumbbells for a while.
    DO IT FOR THE "HOLY, SH*T, YOU GOT HOT"...

    Disproportions in the size of the left and right biceps point to the lack of focusing efforts on the lesser size biceps.

    But there may be other reasons of muscle imbalances:
    1. Scoliosis of the spine
    2. Pathology of the muscle-skeletal system
    3. Training muscle only on one side
    4. Genetic predisposition

    The key to the solution is to train the lesser size biceps and do not train the dominant biceps until their size is aligned.

    I do not know another solution yet; maybe it does exist, but I have not seen it in practice.

    Start doing one arm dumbbells over the preacher bench. Lift heavier on the weak side and throw in a extra set, do this for a wile and see what happens. My arms use to be a 1/2" different, I have them down to 1/4" diff now.

    thats pretty normal....one bicep can be flatter and the other more peaked...usually the difference in the overall arm measurement may not be that dramatic between the right and the left, its more of a visual thing. Train the inner head of the flatter bicep more aggressively, after a fedw months you will begin to see them even out.

    Just do some more one arm work and Start with the weaker arm, match reps on the other arm.
