    lagging shoulder

    My right shoulder is noticeably (well, to me anyway) bigger than my left. I'm left handed and my left shoulder seems stronger, so I imagine my right is more developed since it has to work harder. Now how should I fix this problem - any extra left shoulder work would further increase its stregthen which I imagine would widen the gap.. but working on bringing up my right shoulder strength would just work my more developed side more.. these are just my theories, if anyone can correct me and suggest a plan of action it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    use db's until the shoulder catches up.

    and it sounds like u need to improve your muscle-mind link when using bb's and machines.

    As the earlier poster said, use dumbbells to discover any strength deficits between the shoulders.

    Unilateral training, apply the weak side rule might be an option, as well.

    ok, so i'll keep doing my db presses, then when you say improve me muscle-mind link do you just mean thinking of trying to use both sides equally?

    So what does that mean, using heavier on one side? which side?

    Unilateral training is performing the exercise on arm at a time (not alternating, mind you). Perform all your reps on your weak arm and then repeat for the same number of reps with your strong arm. You will be able to use more resistance than will bilateral training.

    It can also have to do with postural awareness, i find that to activate my shoulders safely and effectively, i like to hold my shoulder blades together (shrug my rhomboids a bit back and down) during the movements to make a solid base for the shoulder girdle and to make sure they are both firing equally. Works for me.
