    Feeling more muscle activation in left tricep more than right

    When I work out I feel more muscle activation in my left tricep, while my right tricep feels none to little activation after working out my triceps.
    Also my left tricep is a bit bigger and well formed then my right tricep and to mention they looked the same 2 months ago so idk what happen..

    How can I fix this issue?

    Pictures will be posted later.

    I have a similar issue with my calves. The right one feels super connected and controllable. The left feels like I'm trying to remotely control somebody else's. Right calf is big. Left calf is meh. About a half inch circumference difference between the two. I think it is an enervation thing. The right one seems to be wired up better.

    So, what I do is concentrate like a mother on that lefty when I use it, and rain shock and awe down on it as best I can. It helps some.

    You can through effort develop a better feel to any muscle that you can actually feel. Keep working on it and be stubborn about it. People that are bed ridden for a few months have to learn how to walk again. You can improve your tricep feel and response, then. Keep at it.

    For triceps, I've been doing the one arm bent over row, I only use dumbbells. So I will start doing Seated bent over two arm rows.

    Dumbbell single arm rows target mainly lat muscle. Rhomboids, traps, biceps get some attention there too. The long head of the tricep may get a very little bit of stimulation.

    Might you be confusing db rows with db triceps kickbacks? That is a triceps exercise.

    Fun fact: People aren't perfectly symmetrical. Its very normal for slight differences and when people come here thinking its a big issue its 99.9% in their head. Still waiting on pictures but I'd feel comfortable betting that its in your head. If your bench and OHP are moving along fine then you're fine.

    I don't think new, novices posters, who make these kinds of threads have ever even progressed to where anything is big or strong enough for there to be a legitimate asymmetry. But, to cover our bases, here is more elaborating on what Ghawk said

    https://www.strongerbyscience.com/im...rength-sports/

    It's a strength and performance perspective, but covers the principles well enough I think, for those to whom it might matter

    Have you practiced just contracting the triceps one arm at a time without any weights just to see what's going on.

    It's normal to have imbalances. You just need to concentrate a bit more on the weaker side.

    Everything look normal when contracting triceps and I am trying to focus on the weaker side when doing exercise.

    You're arms look the same and both need work. Work on getting your pressing up and they will grow.

    I suffer the same. Doing EZ bar skull crushers, and I cannot feel it in my right tricep at all. At the end of the workout, my left is pumped, and the right feels nothing.
