Uneven muscle groups

Why do people have uneven muscles? For example a common one, a guy may have big bi's and tri's but small chest. Is there a way to improve on it. Exercise the weak point harder?

    It could be down to training or it could be down to genetics.

    My right lat is bigger than my left.  I put this down to years of picking up and carrying my kayak on my right shoulder.

    Yeah, start off by working the whole body and make sure you train correctly.  You'd be surprised on how many people don't know what they're doing.  This is why their muscles are underdeveloped.

    I have scoliosis so my right lat and erector spinae are more developed than the left, this seems to be the same with my shoulders and legs as the body has tried to adapt
