    Uneven Back!!!


    The right side of my back is bigger than my left. My mid back and slightly my lat but my mid back is the problem I'm mostly concerned about. Just need a couple exercise ideals to help get my back more symmetrical. Keep in mind I workout in my backyard so no machines or pulley systems exercises thank you

    Hey mate, Isometric excesses I.e just working with one side at a time. Example: My left lat was a little bigger than the right, so I switched from barbell low row to dumbbell low row (one side at a time). Should assist.

    But what about for more of the mid back? Deadlifts and hope it evens over time?

    A mirror/training partner is your best friend man; to correct form. dead lifts and rows etc. with good form will smooth things out . Maybe a gym membership is worth it just for the mirrors and cables!

    One of my lats is quite larger than my other one and im almost positive its from doing mixed grip deadlifts without switching hands. Quite annoying to say the least.

    I dealt with the same problem.

    Add in iso lateral work and start with the weak side first.

    One arm pulldown and db rows work well.

    Also mountain climber pull-ups to the one side as a warm-up will pre exhaust the muscle nicely.
