    my left tricep is alot weaker than my right. How can i get my left tricep caught up?

    I just started workin out maybe a month or so ago. I have noticed my left tricep is considerably weaker than my right one. what can i do to even my triceps out without making one bigger or stronger than the other?

    Use dumbell movements. This will allow your weak tri to catch up to your stronger one. Make sure to always use the same poundage for example 35lb Dumbells for kickbacks...not a 35lb for your weak arm and a 40lb for your strong arm. Do this for a while and they should even out.

    I agree with both of the guys. My left tri was stronger than my right, but now they're pretty much even. I did laying db presses and when my weaker arm gave out, I just stopped the other one also.

    Not just dumbells, but use one arm cable movements as well. Use very strict form and 1 arm movements.

    These guys don't mean to use dumbells only on tricep exercises either. You can incorporate dumbells into many exercises. Even if you want to keep using barbells, supplement the training with dumbells.

    This is what I did and it helped mine equal out.....I started every rep(dumbells or cables) with my weaker arm first(for me it's my left side).....if I could only get 10 reps with the left then that's all I did for the right(with the same weight)....now they have equaled out and I can start with either arm now.

    I have done that very same thing, with the same result.

    The only problem with limiting the reps on your strong side is short changing that side. It could be growing more. I guess that brings up a priority issue.
