Throughout my years of racing motorcycles I have broken my arms and dislocated my shoulder a few times. Problem being is that every single time it happened to be the right side. Now that I have started hitting the gym for the first time in my life I have found that when doing any type of bicep exercises I have found that I can do about 15lb more and 1-2 more reps easily with my left arm. My left arm also looks bigger by a bit. What are some things I can do to correct this? I have been doing an extra set with the right arm but I'm not sure if that will help or not.

i expect the monkey to break the other's back over his knee, then give him a gentle shove and let him flop over on his face... paralyzed for life. his prehensile tail now meaningless.

having recognised this imbalanced i would immediately STOP lifting 15lbs heavier on your good side and only lift as much with that side as you can with your weak side. it might feel easy, but the last thing you want to be doing is developing your strong side with heavier weights. keep it even, your weaker side will catch up
