Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Upon using the gym this morning i realised i was having an unusually tough time lifting weights with my left arm. When using my right arm i didnt have nearly as much difficulty. I dont know if this could just be an off day or a problem that needs sorting. Suggestions?
  2. Give it a rest for 1-2 days and try again. Muscles dont repair at the same time symmetricaly, if you were doing lifting in the past 1-2 days it might not be fully repaired yet.
  3. Cut off both your arms. Then they'll be entirely equal.
  4. This and I would suggest trying to work out what your one-eight rep per arm is for some exercises in the plane that you are having difficulty, then work on the weaker arm while you maintain the strength of the stronger arm.
    Only time isolational work should be used IMO (unlss it's rehab but thats a whole different issue).

    Unless you are talking about curls. Then you need to read a book on lifting
  5. Were you up all night with your left arm?
