    Uneven Biceps


    Hey guys, I am now 7 wks out from my first show (still all natural) and with the cut, it is obvious my biceps are uneven. The left being having more mass, the right a better peak.
    Any suggestions on improving this with 7wks to go?

    do not stress it man. Just keep everything the same and try not to worry about it. You look gret for a first show. Everyone has a body part that sticks out. My right tricep is def not as big as my right. Never had a problem

    You might even try using a heavier Db/cable weight on the less progressed bi until it catches up.

    It's probably just different genetic make-ups of the muscle. It is very rare to see someone with 2 identical biceps.

    My left forearm has more pronounced contoure then my right, and I'm right handed, so its not a dominant hand issue.

    I would agree it's genetics; but was curious to see what solutions everyone might have for it

    Honestly I'd say use heavier weights on your less developed arm.

    The thing is the "underdeveloped" arm has a better peak, the other is just more massive. I was wondering if changing up the ROM might help

    Your totally right, I just noticed it, the right bicep has a greater peak, but the left is fuller. This would look funny, but you perform hammer curls with your right arm while doing regular curls with your left. Hammers would be good for filling in that gap on your right bi.

    I will probably do a couple sets like that at the end of a workout and see if a little change can be made

    I have the same thing bro. I have more of a peak on one and a lower attachment on the other. I think this is more genetic than training them.

    Your left bicep wont look as full if you bring up the peak more, it looks fuller because the peak isnt as high, so on your left hand hit it harder with a lighter weight, twisting your little finger into your shoulder at the top of the movement, to really contract the peak.
    Close grip barbell culls hit the inner head as you know, giving more size, but wide grip hits the outer head, to me it looks like the outer head on your left bicep isnt as developed, and possibly your inner head on the right isnt as developed as the left side.
    Just a thought man, but a super physique keep it up.. hope this helps bro.

    I also read about a "condition" most people have where the non-dominant arm grows larger than the dominant arm. This is due to the fact that your more comfortable with your dominant arm, therefor the other one has to work harder and therefor builds more mass.

    you look awesome bro, it would take a lot longer than 7 weeks to bring your right side up to match the left so IMHO just continue with your contest prep.

    old school slow dumbbell concentration curls could do the trick over time
