    One chest bigger than other

    This ****s gay, Havent took pics yet, but my left chest has always been a bit
    bigger than my right even before lifting... But now that Im lifting
    its becoming more noticable, the right one grows just not as
    fast as the left... How can I resolve this ?

    Are their strength differences?
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Muscle wise yes....
    When I flex my chest you can see its muscle not fat that makes
    it appear bigger...

    The only thing I can think of is my right arm is stronger than my left,
    so when my left arm gives out my left chest muscle picks up for the slack...
    But then again like I said, it was already bigger before I even lifted weights...

    this is a common problem and is not easy to fix. I would say maybe do some isometric work and practice fleexing a lot until you can flex both sides equally and at the same time. Cables helped me learn to do this.
    you wanna know how i did it, this is how, i never saved anything for the swim back.

    it is certainly muscle imbalance, either your left tricep or your right pec but probably both. I would say all you can do is stick to dumbells for chest moves and only do single arm tricep moves. do the weak one first and go to failure then do the strong one and only go to the same amount of reps. this should give your weak one a better work out and hopefully it will catch up.

    I've been working on fixing this on my chest too. Slowly improving by doing DB bench presses, and keeping the same weight til my left side feels comfortable, even if my right side has no problem, just to let my left side "catch up" while not neglecting my right side

    This guy makes the most sense so far. This is a common issue and should easily be corrected at your level. Just don't do extra sets or anything crazy like that on the weak side. Stick to unilateral (only one side at a time) exercises for upper body.

    Should correct itself in no time if you are working out consistently and eating right.

    if your gym has a hammer strength bench machine you can use that and go unilaterally. Just to give you some options other than DB's

    your title doesn't make sense. the proper grammer would be one side of chest.

    It makes perfect sense to me, He has two chests.
    Anyways, dumbbell work will probably be the best way to help the imbalance.
