    I'm wondering if anyone else has had this prob? One side of my chest is bigger than the other which is more and more visable. Are their any solutions? Can I increase the weight on the deformed side? by how much weight....etc

    I've a similar problem, but mines caused by my breast bone having been pushed out on one side as a kid, unfortunately to reset it requires breaking my ribs off and putting the breast plate back into position..

    I'll suffer a little difference I think..

    am curious though if there is a way to do.. but I don't think it's working heavier on one side but making sure each side works equally hard.

    Perhaps try to do any sort of bench press with dumbbells of different weights (left hand 40 and right 45 for example) and then switching. This way you're working both sides equally just at different times and maybe it will equalize both sides if you tend to favor one. It does feel really weird when you do this technique so don't go to heavy otherwise you might hurt yourself. Good luck!

    I have the same prob with my arms. I always say Im going to ask my doc the next time I go in for a check up and it never happens... so tie a string on your finger and remember to ask your doc the next time you see him and see if hes got any answer (from a medical standpoint) for you.
