    Bicep imbalances

    My left bicep is noticeabley (maybe not to anyone else except upon close inspection) smaller than the right one, despite being right-dominant. Very odd, but anyway... how would I remedy this? BB curls are my only bicep isolator, and I don’t want to sacrifice strength/size on the left by switching to single-arm curls and waiting for the right to catch up. Would it make sense to knock out a couple of concentration curl sets on the right after BB curls or on a separate day altogether? What else?

    But I guess it would be more of a band-aid than anything, leaving the root of the problem still a mystery. But hmmm I Mix-grip my RDLs and while I focus intensely on not pulling with my bicep (it has happened once, and it hurt), maybe it’s getting a super small amount of work without my realizing?

    There probably isn't any need to add sets to a single arm. You should try doing dumbbell curls on both arms instead of barbell for a while. This way each arm is lifting on its own and you wont have a dominance issue. Things should even out.

    Best of luck.

    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.
