    need lat help~

    Alright, I recently started intirgrating lat workouts into my weeky routine. But I am having a problem... My right lat is huge compared to my left. Looking at myself in the mirror, from the front, my right one bulges way out, and the left is alot smaller, but I dont feel like ones stronger than the other... what can I do?

    if your referring to one arm rows, then yes your back should be straight, with good spinal alignment….never arch your back..

    wide grip pull ups have made a huge difference in my lat appearance, i would go with those for starters. also dead lifts will help ur over all back formation good luck bro

    Thats actually how I started my lat workout is widegrip pull ups, even though I can only do about 7 really good ones.
    thanks for the help

    Couldnt agree more. I do both religiously. Wide grip pull downs have added massive width to my back. And deadlifts are the single best way to get a solid base, hands down.

    Whether or not they will solve ur one sided issue is not for certain, sometimes that fixes itself tho with constant training
