Left lat smaller than right lat

  1. Left lat smaller than right lat


    I've noticed for more than a year that my left lat is smaller than my right lat. This could possibly be the cause of my back problems I've had the past year or so. What can I do to correct this? Maybe isolated rows only for my left side when I work back?

    Anything else I can do?

    My left side is bigger than my right on almost every muscle group. I've read into it. Since it's my NON DOMINANT side, it works harder to compensate for the natural strength and balance of my dominant side (right) therefore grows bigger.

    If this isn't the case it could also be the form your using with certain exercises.

    My advice is to not worry about it so much, just keep training with a mind-muscle emphasis on working your left lat. It should naturally adjust and fix itself over time.
