    Left bicep smaller and less developed than right. Tips to improve?

    As you can see my left bicep is a noticeably weaker and less defined. I would love to get it up to par with my right arm not just for aesthetic reasons but when doing exercises like tricep pushdowns/ bicep curls my left are gives out 3-4 reps before my right. I feel like the left side of my body in general is weaker (pecs, triceps). I was wondering if anyone has had similar problems and has found a way to combat this.

    It's a little premature to worry about something like this.

    Most ppl have a dominant side, but if you keep working out under a proper routine it'll even itself out as you gain muscle (both the biceps and body in general). The lack of overall muscle development is more noticeable than the diff between your left and right bicep IMO.

    It will also help when you do individual arm exercises to do the left side first, and then just match the same # of reps when you do the right side. Don't keep doing 3-4 more reps on the right side beyond what you did on the left, otherwise you're just helping the imbalance.

    I had nerve damage in my right arm and adhesive capsulitis in the shoulder of my right arm. (my dominate arm). A year later, after the frozen shoulder and nerve damage were mostly better, I started working out again. My right upper and lower arm had significantly atrophied.

    My solution was to do no direct arm work with my left arm. A year later, my arms are about equal and I've started doing direct bicep, tricep, and forearm work with both arms

    As for you, OP, I wouldn't worry about it. Were I you, I'd just pack on some meat and everything should balance out.
