    Poor Pectoral Symmetry

    This is my first post, but I have been viewing/learning for sometime. Anyway, Do any of you bodybuilders have any tips for pectoral symmetry. My left pec is lagging behind my right pec.

    Typical Chest Workout is:

    3x8 (185lbs+) Incline Press
    3x8 (90lbs (each)) Dumbell Press
    3x10 (hang a 25) weighted dips
    3x20 cable/machine flys

    Strenght seems equal on both sides but aesthetically my right side is dominant.

    Best regards,

    my opinion is use dumbells as much as possible. this does not allow one side to take the majority of weight like it can with machines or a barbell. i use dumbells as much as possible...on my flat bench, fly, incline, mil press, decline, etc.

    that is just my opinion...good luck!

    yes i would say the same thing..keep going with dumbells and cables thats just going to make both sides work the same..other than that i have no clue what else to say.

    good luck

    I had a similair problem a while back and as the guys said dumbbells is the way to go. Here is the workouts I used to bring mine up to speed , my chest was also lacking so I started doing chest twice a week.

    Workout 1

    Bench press 4 x 12,8,5,2
    Incline Flies 4 x 8 -10
    Bent arm dumbbell pullovers 4 x 8
    Peck-dec 3 x 12

    Workout 2

    Incline Smith Machine press 4 x 12,10,8,6
    Flat Flies 4 x 8-10
    Cable Crossovers 4 x 12 - 10

    Also concentrate on your pecs doing the work and not your shoulders, feel the pecs contracting when you do flies and stop the weight about 25cm from touching. This will keep the stress on the pecs.

    Good luck bro
