    Uneven lats with picture

    Hey everybody,
    I have noticed that my left lat is smaller and less bumpier than my right one.
    I've been lifting for almost 2 years.
    Gentlemen could you judge and give me your opinions?
    Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english :P

    Edit: i forgot to mention that both my lats have the same strenght and i do both unilater and barbell movements

    First, that's a pretty good V for 2 years. The two sides aren't symmetrical. I wouldn't say the left is "smaller" in development, but at the bottom the left lat starts out higher up then the right one, which is why it looks smaller.

    You could try to even them out by doing single arm movements more, like one-arm db/landmine/cable rows or 1-arm pulldowns... or two-armed versions where each holds a separate db or pulley. But this could also largely be genetic.

    It's hard to tell from only one pic, but it almost seems like your posture or spine tilts to the right, which could possibly affect muscle shape incl. lats in general and also if your posture is similarly off during diff exercises. But I'm just guessing.

    First off many people have unsymmetrical body parts from side to side,like more of a peak on one bicep than the other it's a genetics and you can't really change that.
    One possibility is you have some sort of an issue with your left side.
    Could be a shoulder thing or other but I'm just speculating.
    Seeing a physical therapist or chiropractor could determine if that's the case.
    Another possibility is that you use one side more than the other doing every day things so your right side could be dominate and you use it more.
