Compound lifts... uneven growth??

  1. Compound lifts... uneven growth??


    My right side seems to be growing a lot more than my left, even though I've been doing all compound lifts. Any ideas why? I'm really creeped out.

    It's basically a modified 5x5 on squat, bench, etc.

    Stats are 190#, ~11%BF, 7 months training, 6'3''.

    All of these lifts are balanced left to right.

    Here is a sample of my last workout:

    Bench: 10 Sets from 15 @ 135 up to 2x2 @ 165
    Squat: 5x5 up to 175, plus 2x2 @ 185
    Wide-grip pullups: 2 sets x 5
    Close-grip pullups: 3 sets x 5
    Rows:
    3 x 10, DBs up to 70s
    3 x 5, BB up to 135
    Leg Press: 3x3 @ 440
    Deadlift 2x15 @ 105 --> 2x12 @ 135, 2x5 @ 155
    Vertical Rows: 6 Sets up to 2x4 @ 105
    Lat Pulldowns, 5 sets x 10 @ 140, 2 sets x 10 @ 160, 2 sets x 4 @ 180
    BB Curls 5 x 4 @ 85
    Pec Dec: 15 @ 150, 10 @ 180, 5 @ 205, 3 @ 235, 1 @ 245
    Reverse Pec Dec: 5 reps (1 set) @ 135


  2. Likely either mechanical imbalance or subconscious favoring of one side over the other.

    totally agree here

    dnbaker, you are really going to have to focus on using that left side more and look to use dumbells as much as possible
