Uneven chest development
Im pretty new to weight training and so far have been muddling along by reading some books and with a bit of advice from friends.
Ive come up against a problem and i wondered if anyone here had any help or tips they could offer.
I had been training for about 3 months or so and I started to notice that my chest was not developing evenly.
The left side was much more pronounced and defined than the right.
I am right handed and I have had problems with my right shoulder and right side of my neck for the last 4 years since I was in car accident and suffered slight whiplash.
I have seen physios and osteopaths over the years and they (as far as i can recall) said that there was a problem with a muscle that appeared not to have healed correctly, and i think that they said it may have restricted my range of movement slightly (my memory of it all is very hazy!)
Most of the time my shoudler is fine. But after a long drive or if i have been working at a PC for any length of time i can start to notice a bit of a niggling pain.
In the gym i have been using the seated chest press and began to notice that my left side was doing much more of the work than my right?
I guess that this would account for the over development on that side?
I was also using a pec dec some of the time.
I have never used free weights.
So really am looking for some advice on how i can get even chest development?
Perhaps i need to strengthen my shoudlers first?
I really do have no idea what to do!
I havent been training for the last 3 weeks due to illness and my shoulder playing up (not related to training but to doing too much driving!) so once i get back to it im going to have to start pretty much back at the beginning?
Any help or advice would really be appreciated.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
