Problem with left pectoral14716

Hamer93 private msg quote post Address this user
Basically my left pec feels as though it is only half the size of my right, not in terms of thickness but length ways vertically. When I tense my chest I can feel my left pec stop halfway where as my right is different and therefor my left pec looks saggy.

I did have an operation on my left elbow a few years ago and wonder if this effects the way I perform presses etc.

I hope I've explained myself correctly and appreciate any advice

Before someone recommends doing dips to hit your lower chest, go talk to a specialist.

No idea man, I'd talk to your doctor and tell them your concerns, they'd probably point you in the right direction. Maybe somebody else on here would know.

My chest feels super uneven too. I think everyone is like that

@Scotian One of your pecs is half the size of the other?

@Hamer93 pics? Maybe you can just physically flex one pec harder than the other

Practice doing the tittie dance. Srs

Is your left shoulder "larger" than your right. Meaning your overcompensating with your shoulder, rather than pressing with your chest?

Just some random thoughts that come to mind with the small amount of information provided.

Not literally half but I notice it lol. My left pec is bigger than right pec and my right lat is bigger than my left one.
