    So, I've always had this "problem".

    My right arm is somewhat bigger than my left arm. I have no idea why. They are equally strong, kind of. Maybe that the right arm is somewhat stronger, but it's nothing I really notice. I asked a guy in the gym about this 1 year ago, if this is something he has heard before, and he said that it's pretty common and that I should just continue working out as normal and not do more reps with my left arm or lift heavier with it. To just workout as normal and eventually it would grow into the same size as the other arm.

    I was at a party a couple of days ago and this one guy said, being half drunk, and we were all kidding around, that my right arm is bigger than my left. It could have been that he joked about me using my right arm when jerking. Or it was him actually noticing that it actually is. So it got me thinking.

    Does anyone else "suffer" from this? Any suggestions on what to do about it?

    Thanks!

    It's pretty common. My right arm is way stronger than my left even though the size difference isn't much.
    Just hit your left arm harder at the gym.

    And alternate arms when masturbating.

    Work out more with dumbbells and skip bars and machines that let one arm work more than the other. Over time, they'll even out acceptably.

    Not sure, but... are you right or left handed? I find i use my left more for lifting and carrying and my right for detail work generally.

    I always do two more reps on my left arm than my right since I'm right handed.

    I'm guessing that it may be caused by too much masturbation. ;)

    Learn to wank left-handed. Problem solved.

    Palm pressure & shape is also why many men have a slight curve to their hardon, that sometimes only disappears with a full raging boner. Another consequence of hand preference is that right handers tend to "dress" to the left (dick hangs down their left pants leg when commando or wearing loose boxers), while lefties dress to the right. Just thought you'd like to know. icon_wink.gif

    Haha, I am pretty sure that is not the reason. But thanks, I guess...

    It's normal for your dominant arm's muscles to be larger and to a related extent stronger. I'm assuming you're right-handed.

    To "equalize" it I'd assume that you'd simply hit your left arm harder (e.g., do more reps w/ your left arm). Personally, I wouldn't worry about it.

    I'm actually left-handed.

    ^^^^^ THIS ^^^^^
    I've always been told by trainers that barring any injury or birth defect its likely your "dominant" arm/leg will generally be bigger, but either could be the case, depending on your previous workout experience/practice. So you compensate by working your "smaller" side with exercises, reps and weight to promote more growth than the larger, until you get closer to symmetrical.

    My left arm is more defined / bigger. I'm left handed though so I'm not surprised.

    My trainer told me the opposite, that the other arm than your dominate arm can be bigger. My right bicep is noticeably bigger by a bit and I'm left-handed - go figure. Also I can lift more with my left than my right.

    I was thinking the other day that maybe this is because my right arms rests more than my left, hence grows more muscle.
