Do You Have One Arm Bigger Than The Other?

Posted by Corinne Chen on


Ideally, the muscles on each side of your body should be symmetrical in size and strength, but that is not always the case as muscle imbalances do occur when there is an unequal distribution of strength, flexibility or size between opposing muscle groups. When any of these muscles become weaker, stronger, looser, or tighter than normal, joint movement can become limited. As a result, these imbalances can affect both your appearance and overall function.

Several factors can contribute to muscle imbalances: natural development - as asymmetry is common due to genetics, repetitive movements in our daily activities, poor posture which causes muscles on one side to be tighter or looser than the opposite side, and playing sports that favor one side over the other, to name a few.

Muscle imbalance can have significant consequences, and can go further than just ruining your aesthetics, limited mobility being one of them as uneven muscle development affects joint range of motion. It can also result in pain and instability which can lead to a risk of joint, ligament, tendon and bone injuries.

Chris has put together a workout to fix muscle imbalances so follow along with him as he goes through the routine. Identify your imbalance so that when doing unilateral exercises, you can focus on the weaker side first.

Remember that everything in your body is interconnected. Prioritize balance, good form, and a well-designed training program. Your body’s ability to adapt and improve is remarkable!
