    I have no idea how I do it, but I'm definately hitting the right side of my chest a lot more on flat bb bench somehow and it is starting to show. :wtc: I really have no idea how I'm doing it, but it is fuckin driving me nuts.

    Bar goes up slowly and evenly. I wonder if I'm not keeping my elbows equally pointed in the same direction?

    Is it even possible to fix an imbalance like this or am I fuxed for life? Anybody else have a similar problem?

    Maintaining perfect symmetry is something even the pros struggle with. Don't worry about it, it's normal.

    I'm gonna go a whole year focusing more on unilateral, and DB work, while sacrificing strength development. Will get back to you in a year if I remember.
