    Fix to uneven traps?

    My traps is really uneven, and has been since i started working out.. i have allways trained them equally, and lately i have trained my left one (the small) more than the other, but no progress so far...

    Have any of u encountered the same problem? and if so, how to fix?

    Just look at my avitar. lol

    Personally, it's genetic. So long as you aren't dangerously favoring that one side during lifts you're a o k.

    Sometimes when im in front of the mirror my traps look uneven, but then i realize its because im not flexing/relaxing them both equally. You sure it's not the same with you?

    How are you training them currently? Just asking because the problem for some people who train exclusively with the barbell is that there is always the possibility that their stronger side may tend to take on a greater percentage of the weight during the lift, resulting in uneven growth if done over a period of time. If you're not already doing so you may want to try using a method which allows you to work each side independently, such as db's or single arm cable shrugs, and try your best to do work both sides as evenly as possible.

    Try doing one arm dumbbell shrugs using the same weight for both arms. This way you can ensure that you are working each trap equally.

    Like a previous poster stated, the symmetry is a lot to do with genetics, so do not worry about this too much, as you get bigger you will find that the imbalance will probably work itself out. Good luck.
