asymmetrical body robinxchrom 1 1 yearrobinxchrom (22): Hey from the front I seem to be asymmetrical if i take a picture/video of myself on my iPhone. I can upload later but Basically it seems to be coming from my obliques/plevis. Is there anyway to correct this? I have an old picture here http://148bcec7bb334341cd98-2fb779bd12ec72d4612275342f2c9187.r31.cf1.rackcdn.com/2b2b287d729d26421150dfb5fa6a5570.jpg will upload a new one if necessary tomorrow.

what am i doing wrong jordan1988 5 2 yearsRand (4291): how much do you squat? have you ever tried putting more weight on the bar.
Quads vs Hams Thatguy81 3 2 yearsKansas___Boyyyyy (3349): Do hammy spreads till you want to do yourself from behind. Also do not do heavy weight on leg extensions for a long period of time or you will enjoy a trip to snap city.
Forward/jammed shoulder issue Aoverto7 2 2 yearsAoverto7 (238): I think i figured out the problem. I believe it is due to underdeveloped rotator cuff/lower trap muscles. Im working on strengthening those muscles to pull the scapula down and back and improve my posture.
Disproportionate Muscle?? newguy278 6 2 yearsnewguy278 (1): Thanks, I can only imagine how much that will cost
Help Club foot GreekLegend 6 2 yearsGreekLegend (52): @ErickFromOmaha Forgot number of operation I did think was about 3 and special shoe I had to wore its not fully complete but I've been living with it and when I do tend to squat the right heel always rise or I end up leaning more to my left and force myself to not and is it good that I squat with no shoes? and for calves I normally do 4x15 standing calf raises, 4x15 donkey calf raises, 4x15 seated calf raises, 4x15 calf press

Strength Imbalance CaptainKanter 4 2 yearsLVjack (2749): Nothing else to say besides this.
neck and Forearm bigger golago 20 2 yearsLVjack (2749): If you want a big neck look on YouTube for how wrestlers train their necks. It's a part of everyday training for them. Probably lots of exersies you have never thought of.
Help me win $10 Kecaldesian 11 2 yearsKecaldesian (7): @nine0seven that's the thing, my form is perfect. That's the first thing I adressed when I started to notice the imbalance. I did how ever start incorporating hammer stength bench and for some reason I feel my inferior pec activating WAY more than I ever did with DB or bb
Uneven Body Parts correra911 6 3 yearsSOLARSUPLEX (8314): The only thing i could say is use dumbbells for everything. That way the shoulder that is under developed cannot be helped by the other shoulder.
Sudden weakness in left arm?! David007 9 3 yearsDavid007 (1): I went and got a MRI done on my neck. It turns out that I have bulging discs on C5-C6-C7 Protruding into the nerve stem. This should cause pain and stiffness. But also in these vertebra the "canals" in which it leaves the main spinal column have collapsed or by the MRI gotten much narrower. Thus constricting or cutting off the signals that travel the nerve. These particular verts go directly to the triceps delts and some pecs. The Dr....
my chest is going wrong need advice versus222 15 3 yearsbslo (262): @Hamersmash Lol this actually a forum dominated by mostly powerlifting/strength routines so you obviously have no idea wtf your talking about.
Unbalanced arms! ilifthard 9 3 yearsBeans (4204): So, you do one arm at a time, or you alternate? If you use free weights, don't alternate, just do both at the same time, same number of reps. If you use cables, don't do them at the same time. Do one at a time, same number of reps.
Problem with left pectoral Hamer93 9 3 yearsnine0seven (2569): Dude we all have imbalances. My left pec is bigger than my right & same with my lats but I'm right handed. You'll be fine bro just focus on form 🙏
Anterior vs. Posterior upper body training wannabemuscular 25 3 yearsoceanair (18004): @eknight lol no, just your mind.
right lat noticeably bigger than left? TheBB 3 3 yearsthe1 (33837): I have this problem from an old shoulder blade injury
Muscle Proportionality alkudari23 1 3 yearsalkudari23 (52): I need help to make my body more proportional. My right chest is bigger than my left one. And for some odd reason my left oblique is more ripped than the right one. I need any advice for fixing or improving it. Thank You.
Uneven delts Cubb 5 3 yearsCubb (112): Lol I'll try to ease up on the shoulder fappin
Side Pecs _RudeCrew 17 3 yearsgolagola (307): @_RudeCrew hi man why do u Thief my Role ! :D
Glutes over powering quads nine0seven 17 3 yearsSwift (1411): Pre exhausting the quads to get a greater emphasis on them in the squats is a little backwards. I can't remember where I saw it but the analogy used is: Imagine you have 3 fit and healthy guys to help move a large heavy table, one of them has just come from a big workout at the gym and is pretty fatigued, do you think he is going to do more of the lifting, or are the other two going to have take over more... Omar isuf has a video with Jeremy...
Uneven back Denholm 2 3 yearseknight (56914): Lots of DB work in the gym and correct your posture out of it at work. -3X
S O S Calves MlEqO3fo 2 3 yearscwt (10): Calves are often predominantly based on genetics, but the way I think of it is, your calves are used to essentially light, very high repetitions-eg walking- so if I needed to hit my calves I'd do heavy (8-12) standing press and then slightly lighter on seated (10-15). Give them something that they're not accustomed to. Also, try hit them 3x a week eg mon wed fri. 4 sets standing 3 sets seated.
right shoulder lower then left rangnath 13 3 yearsrangnath (1): Finally i came to know the reason for uneven shoulder height searching on net since last 4 months . I was having glenohumeral internal rotation deficit usually occurs due to throwing hand movement since i used to play cricket from child hood without strengthening it. Shoulder muscles became weak which dropped humeral head forward shortening shoulder muscles depressing shoulder.

Do you have a Muscle Virus? nine0seven 1 3 yearsnine0seven (2569): I'm sure I'm not the only one on this forum who suffers from a muscle virus. I have an appointment to get my atlas readjusted this afternoon after going 7 years with a muscle virus. If you have a muscle imbalance (aka muscle virus) that you can't seem to get rid of, find a NUCCA practitionor or Atlas Orthogonal. Watch this vid for more in depth details: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=25nn9LfA6bI Cheers!
uneven pec soreness? Sedlo18 7 3 yearsSedlo18 (25): @Frostshock I flex alot yeah haha and yes I do heavy 5X5 BB bench
Im getting really frustrated... Sedlo18 20 4 yearsSedlo18 (25): @kickinchicken is there any reason why my weak & bigger pec is alwasy way more sore the day after than my stronger & smaller pec? I cant seem to get the mind muscle connection with my smaller pec, always feel my tricep/shoulder taking over
Is This normal??? newguy298 4 4 years3tuf (121): Go to the doctor immediately!!
Lagging body parts and approach Jimmydrama13 3 4 yearsJimmydrama13 (295): Ye one of my strongest lifts just wasn't blessed with great chest genetics , I'm very shoulder dominant so that has always been a problem trying to isolate chest minimising shoulder input of course u will get some shoulder activation but have really focused on isolating my chest and has worked well ,
Muscular Imbalance nine0seven 7 4 yearsnine0seven (2569): Sometimes that's the best advice. So thanks.
Lower body/Upper body Callofthehounds 19 4 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554): Well thing is man the Russians can put up some huge power lifting totals but it's not really the culture they try to be strong at everything, even their power lifters don't specialize the same way American lifters do, you see far less exercises towards using equipment like box squats etc, little to no speed work, much more emphasis on overhead work. Higher volume but normally a hatred of failure like an asian father. And most of their elite...
Whats your weakpoint? Hiiibbbb Jump to first page44Jump to last page 4 years_RudeCrew (15100): This
too early ik!! Illadian 5 4 yearswannabemuscular (32343): Does it hold up strength-wise? Don't worry about it. I'd bet most guys have a good 1/2" difference from one side to the other. Keep cutting.
Very stubborn chest! Sedlo18 10 4 yearsigg (2626): @Rico dips do work chest you just have to lean to a 90% angle as close as you can. there is also a mind muscle connection that IMO works on this perfectly
Bench lags behind Jezza_91 16 4 yearsBaiTu (3096): Could you talk a little bit more about "myofascial release in the pecs" and please use small words, thanks.
How do you deal with lagging body parts? Hiiibbbb 18 4 yearsjonrivs49 (3001): Lots of lagging parts because of bad form. Everyone just want to lift big.
Left arm lagging half an inch help Hiiibbbb 8 4 yearsHiiibbbb (1174): @Hewy007 already did bro

Pull vs Push + aura of wisdom SwoleMutant Jump to first page36Jump to last page 4 yearsHewy007 (2980): this was written after OP took a 5g blunt to the face
Just genetics are will it fill out soon? Trickerd 13 4 yearsigg (2626): My left side of my body is almost completely different to my right (muscle wise)
My chest is retarded Hiiibbbb 15 4 yearsajones46 (11698): Nope, truth hurts sometimes.
Really narrow. Grower not a shower feelsbadm SwoleAnimal 1 4 yearsSwoleAnimal (5971): Anyone else never get any wider? My lats have grown tremendously but it never made me gain width. I can perform a strong lat spread, but look really narrow standing relaxed. Will I eventually gain width or is my frame just narrow as hell?
Body (Dis)Proportions alex323 10 4 yearsSwoleAnimal (5971): lol im the complete opposite. Narrow as fuk but big arms. I think its genetics TBH. Just focus on your lagging parts with more volume and frequency. All you can do
Squat- twist at the bottom! jimmynatural 1 4 yearsjimmynatural (1): Sup! I just need some advice regarding a slight twist im getting when i squat moderate to heavy (4 plates+). Im doing alot of mobility work on my hips,back and ankles mainly kelly starret's drills. I also did a "reset" and started from scratch with good depth and form as well as some low box squating to help hammy, glute and activation. also to help sitting back into the lift. Im not getting any pain just wanna get my form...
Width troubles Zyzzst 14 4 yearsSwoleAnimal (5971): I struggle with the same thing holmes. I wish I could just walk around sideways all day because I don't look as impressive from the front lulz
Unsymmetrical muscles, HELP! AffeGund 8 4 yearsframe (55): I had exactly the same problem. I found out myself that I wasn't squeezing my shoulder blades together and this was causing uneven pecs. Always squeeze your shoulder blades together and keep them together through the whole motion. Try to feel the motion when your chest does most of the movement.
Uneven Lats/Back !! One Side thicker...HELP! FiremanSi 15 4 yearsFiremanSi (42166): Thanks man.
Uneven chest Black_sheep 2 4 years4real (3319): Post a pic would help show us what you mean , how severe the muscle imbalance is.
Width vs length -genetics? Hamer93 8 4 yearsDexdbest (4792): Of course. Focus on lats, pecs, side delts and triceps. Id recommend exercises like upright rows, pull ups,inline work and laterals.
Abdominal Symmetry TheSucklingg 13 4 yearsMangochutney (877): I have 2 little circular bumps perfectly centered on the 2 upper segments of my abs, it's pretty cute. It also has no relevance to this, sorry.
Measurement for symmetry? Lukman 6 5 yearsmikew (11229): Very cool thanksfor posting @jaydiddy85
Balanced opposing muscles Sidewinder 4 5 yearsBaiTu (3096): I think you should be balanced but that doesn't mean those lifts should be equivalent. A more general rule that I try to follow is doing the same amount of reps for back that I do for chest. For example, if I'm going to do 25 reps on the bench I'm going to try to get around the same amount of reps of pulling or rowing exercises.
Help! Uneven arms!! omrrjs 4 5 yearsigg (2626): switch your jerking off hand
How do you's bring up lagging bodyparts? Jordan336 2 5 yearseventheodds1 (5644): Priority principle. Diet. Twice a week etc.
Weaker side of the chest? tamere01 2 5 yearseknight (56914): Slow down your rep timing on DB's. Pre-exhaust with flies. Find a gym with heavier DBs or talk to your current one about getting heavier ones. -3X
Right shoulder blade sticking out! DFMaster240 4 5 yearsZyzzst (4486): ^^^like he said...provide a picture
Different Shaped/Sized Triceps FijiSotia 3 5 yearsFijiSotia (52): Thanks buddy, I'll try those exercises out :D
unproportionate arms Seller 3 5 yearsjohon6 (1393): my left arm bigger than my right, think it's all the fapping with the right has wasted it away :)
upper chest zzzzzzzzzz BEASTIX 17 5 yearsalexmuller (5452): @the1 agreed bro, not just that but my chest responds better to inclines, but I think it is the angle my elbows are at when I am on an incline and I dont roll my shoulders at all on incline.
Triceps huge, Lacking biceps! Kriztijan 8 5 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554): Serge Nubret style supersets or Reeves sets. It's getting to the stage where now where I'v accepted that if I train arms even light on off days with any regularity they are going to get out of proportion to the rest of me. Heavy compound movements and then on your off days light shoulders and arms, cause mine to explode.
kinda need some help laxbro32 4 5 yearsThor (5028): Dumbbells and time. Most muscle imbalances even themselves out eventually. This is because the rate at which muscle grows slows. So, while one might be bigger, it will hit diminishing returns faster.
Techniques for improving lagging muscles BWestern 8 5 yearsnassbridges (10): Yeah I think you could add a little bit volume and maybe hit the chest twice a week. Make sure that the two workouts are different in term of rep range
triceps oversized, chest undersized? misc 8 5 yearsAKK (1998): pre-exhaustion will do nothing.
muscle imbalance bosssantana 2 5 yearslift4life (595): http://forum.simplyshredded.com/topic/4649/how-to-fix-muscle-imbalance/ and i suggested not wanking with you right and use your left from time to time
Leg Imbalance BrettDaniels 9 5 yearsBrettDaniels (313): Imbalance is a bitch
smaller biceps on 1 hand,help warrior 2 5 yearsPopeye25 (1692): it will catch up in time if u always use dbs. dont do extra reps with ur stronger hand. if ur left is weaker then do alternating curls going left to right
Muscle Atrophy on one arm...HELP Mazz 9 6 yearsLittleDragon (486): This may sound a bit like bullshit but maybe consider meditation. Taking time out to concentrate on his left arm may help restore movement and control to the arm. Muscle memory is developed by repeatedly performing a movement. The brain controls skeletal muscle movement. By repeatedly performing a movement with control you use the frontal lobe of the cerebral cortex to concentrate on getting the movement right. Each movement fires the neurons...
help with my pecs bosssantana 13 6 yearsbosssantana (103): i know im going to but not to start off the workout probably end my workout with BB
