Tips For A Well Balanced Symmetrical Physique

By Lee Hayward

Do you find that one side of your body is more developed then the other? For example, one arm or leg is bigger then the other? This is a very common problem. Practically everyone has some imbalance between their left and right sides of the body.

This is caused because we use our dominant side for most of our daily chores (i.e. if you are right handed you will tend to do most of your daily activities with your right hand). This can also affect your workouts, where the dominant side usually lifts more of the weight then the weaker side.

To fix this problem you need to include exercises that work each side of the body individually. By forcing both sides of your body to work equally as hard you will develop balance between the left and right sides.

Dumbbells are ideal for working both sides of the body equally. Unlike barbell and most machine exercises, dumbbells allow the weight to be evenly divided between the left and right sides, thus creating even development.

Here are some sample exercises that you can include in your workouts that work both sides equally.

Note: The following workout exercise pictures are taken from the Lee Hayward's Total Fitness Bodybuilding DVD Training System.
