Pecs...sisters, not twins

    So, I've been really pushing my training more than usual and I'm finally starting to see results that I like. The only problem is that i'm realising that my pecs aren't coming in equally. They're different. if you look at the inside (where the "boob crack" should be) one is more square and the other more round. also, when i wear a shirt, it appears that my nipples are at different angles (like they would on a bad boob job).

    I guess what i'm wondering is: is this all caused by form? should i drop the weight a little and really focus on form during my next few work outs (just to make sure i have it right) or is it genetic. is my body just born to be asymetrical?

    The body is not perfectly symmetrical, no matter how well you train. One side will always be slightly different than the other, usually the dominate side (Right-handed, or left-handed). You can train the visually weaker side a little more to even things up, but you will always be slightly asymmetrical. Ever notice competitive bodybuilders will favor one side during a show? That's because they have identified which side is their best side, better developed side...
    Example, when in good shape, showing definition, my right bicep when flexed, is almost 1/4 of an inch smaller than my left bicep, even though I'm right-handed...
    You just need to train the "smaller" side a little more, to even things up...

    I'm not perfectly symmetrical myself, but it's no big deal. I take a look at a lot of the guys on my and other's hotlist and notice they're not perfectly symmetrical either. It's okay; and still makes you a hottie!

    I swear, people on here sometimes forget it's called real jock FITNESS AND HEALTH not Realjock Gossip Forum. Here's a valid tip bro - work on your balance on the bench, light weight, focus on balance. Better yet, bench on a balance ball.

    I spend a lot of professional time looking at women´s chests and they are almost all unequal. It´s most obvious on the larger breasted ones. Men are the same.

    I would never have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out. You look good. Don't sweat it.

    I agree with imasrxd the second you start obsessing about it is when your training no longer seeks to be about fitness and more about aestetics... I am at the point where I no longer step on scales and I gauge my progress based on strength gains and movement breakthrus... don't sweat it, just do work and the physical results will come, I know this from experience.

    Mine aren't even, either. And I've always had a dent in my chest which I thought would he accentuated by a big chest, so I at first resisted working out. But the dent just gave me some cleavage which the guys seem to like. So, it worked out. I still see a big difference, but others don't seem to care.
