    Question Left shoulder more defined and bigger than Right

    Hello,

    Let's see what you all think. My left shoulder is well defined and the traps really shine. The right isn't quite so, kind of lags behind and sags. I have been doing extra sets on the Right to try to help, no go. I had a broken collar bone 40 years go that healed over and under, not side by side. I have had multiple dislocations on my right side years ago so it is weaker but it holds it own even though I get a sound like the tendon is sliding over the shoulder during exercise, people freak out when they hear it, but it doesn't hurt.

    Any suggestions on what I could try.

    Thanks - Matt

    Extra sets of what? Military presses or Laterals? If you do only one, try adding the other. If you already do both, try asking someone to watch you while doing each exercise (or capture video) to see if you lift symmetrically.

    Thanks for the info. I do an extra set of each exercise I do. I had a trainer once tell me to use more weight on the right than the left but it didn't help. I think I am just going to have to live with it.

    maybe the muscles on that side just don't sit as they should anymore.
