    Fairly Odd

    recently, i don't know why, but my muscle development has done something awkward. I am assume that it is due to my work out. Ok, here is the deal, my muscles on the left side of my body are small than the right side for some reason. (Chest, Deltoid) Has anyone experienced something like this? If so, how can I correct whatever I am doing wrong?

    start using dumbell exercises instead of barbell or machines. if your doing isolation exercises were u use one side first and then the other, work your left side first, and then match the reps with your right side.

    Its totally normal to have one side slightly developed more than the other. Most people have a 1/4 to 1/2 difference in upper arm measurements from left to right and 1/2 to 3/4 in their quads. I wouldn't worry about it you are probably the only one who really notices it.
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    He is right, always start with your weaker side and when you switch never exceed the reps that you did with your weaker side even if you can. It will take some time, just stay off the machines and you will even out. If you still need to use machines try and place more weight or work load on your weaker side.
