Plz help me with a problem with my pecs

<p>^Yeah, I wasn't joking either.</p>

<p>My body type is a combination of skinny and athletic, and I have a slight problem with my pecs. I just wanted to see if any of you out there could maybe help me out of this.</p>

<p>To put it simply, my pecs are not the same size. I know it sounds funny, but it's true. My left pec looks like it belongs to someone who can bench press 200 pounds, and my right pec is almost completely flat. Naturally, I've been doing things like chest press, bench press, and push ups to exercise both equally using the logic that if my left is much stronger than my right, then it will be worked less while the right one will get worked more and eventually they should even out.</p>

<p>Not the case. Any advice?</p>

<p>Back in my youthful days, I used to be a shot-putter / discus-thrower, and the muscles in my right arm were significantly larger & stronger than my left. If you're bench pressing with free weights, I don't think your current strategy will work - the stronger muscle will simply take up a greater portion of the weight. You need to do extra workouts using just your right arm e.g. bench-pressing with a dumbbell. Or - like Rocky - try one-handed pushups, if you're up to it.</p>

<p>Always do Dumbbell flys, after a chest exercise.</p>

<p>thanks for the advice, I'll try those things</p>

<p>you could have a problem with your technique. have a trainer/coach evaluate your lifts and see if anything is wrong. otherwise, just do extra work on your right side with free weights.</p>

<p>use dumbells and do a chest press with those lying on a bench, but do more reps on the side which is less developed, this will help correct the muscle imbalance.</p>
