    Don't know if this helps but im left handed(i guess thats a given)and i kickbox so im hitting harder with my left.Also it looks like my left is fuller?(longer)then the right so more peak on right and fuller or longer on left.

    IM the same as the last two posters. I am right handed, but my left bicep looks fuller and has become stronger. My right bicep is more defined though.

    I think its because when I am doing barbell/ezbar curls, my left has been weaker than my right, so it is lifting more weight, and therfore getting bigger.

    One way you can also control its size is by putting in an extra set for your left arm on each exercise.

    I've noticed when doing ez-culrs i feel it more in my right arm(pump)i even try to focus on left but doesn't help.Think with them im going to start lifting first (bringing up)with my left.Also might do dumbell curls with heavier weight on left.Somebody will fix us up!

    Truth I used to have this same damn problem lol. What I did was always up my reps on my left side by 4-6. and i still do this to this day . It worked for me, maybe it can for you.

    I'd do an extra set on the arm that needs it. I also think that using DB instead of barbell would help this problem.

    On another note, it half seems relevant. Ive found a combo of chins, reverse preachers and incline dumbell curls and full body dips + pushdown superset smash on the size of your arms. I put a half inch on each arm in 3 weeks with this combo doing chins x3 then reverse preachers x3 on monday; chins + inlcine db x3 wedesday; then chins /reverse preacher x3 on friday etc. I do dips pushdown superset x3 each time. Works a treat.

    Your dominant arm is always going to have a better peak than your other, it's just genetics. Even Arnold in his prime, his right bicep had a fuller and better peak while his left bicep was longer.
