Those that have met me may have picked up that I have slightly more mobility in my right hand than left.
You may not have known that the muscle ‘weakness’ stretches down most of my left side. The word weakness has been a common, easy to comprehend term I’ve always used to describe the status of my left arm.
Well, recently, in light of my training, I’ve taken issue with my own discription of the muscles.
It became a habit to explain it like this, but quite honestly, it’s been wrong of me to have done that all my life. I want to build muscle – and instead of worrying about the effect of a lop sided set of abs – I needed to start at adding strength.
It’s true I could possibly build muscle quicker in my right than left, BUT the sheer fact I’m looking to strengthen my left side should be the important factor.
I’m loving my training and will find what works and what doesn’t, I’ll continue to try new things and see where it takes me. The goals may change as the strength builds but as I’ve mentioned before I made mistakes with my training and stopped a few weeks in.
I just need to keep tweaking, find what suits and get stronger – on both sides!
