Bicep issue

Okay guys...

Any ideas how to fix the balance of my biceps? My left arm is much weaker and about 1/2 inch smaller than my right. I hate the idea of neglecting my right arm as I would like to continue to make curl gains. But I guess I might have too.

Currently my bicep day includes
3x8 preacher curls
3x8 hammer curls
3x8 concentration curls

I was thinking about just lowering the weight and doing one more set of hammer and concentration curls on my left arm while continuing to do the normal lifts in my right arm. I know I hit my bicep with other lifts too, but the left arms just not catching up..

    I'd just train them the same mate

    1/2" now may be a lot, 1/2" when your arms are 2" bigger will not be

    Plus they'll even out ... mine did, they were quite a way out a year ago

    I have the same issue, one arm is 1/2" smaller than the other due to a higher peak. I've a suspicion that it's because I always tense that one more. So I'm going to start tensing the smaller one a few times throughout the day to see if it will 'catch up' over time.

    I might be talking bollox, but it can't do any harm.
