biceps

hi guys i was wondering as your most used arm is bigger than your weaker arm do you need to work more sets on the weaker arm to get them both the same size??

    No, just concentrate on making sure your left arm is doing at least as much work as the right one in barbell movements and start with your left arm in any dumbell movements. Over time it evens out. My left arm is closing in on my right one hehe.

    Definitely not. Try working with dumbbells rather than barbells for stuff like curls, bench, shoulder press etc. This ensures each arm is working independently and that the stronger is not compensating for the weaker one

    A small difference in size is quite normal though, and I wouldn't be surprised if you were the only one who notices it

    work on gain and form will follow
    you will never have them both even so its not worth trying to fix this.
