anybody w/ same experience?

going through my blast well enough...

then this week, i felt an "imbalance" of some sort...

my left side is weaker than my right side...

i can't do a decent set of press movement for delts and chest bec my left side feels weak and shaky...

never experienced this before...

when i tried to do incline db press, my left arm from triceps to my grip was very unstable...

when i tried military press, my left lat almost cramped bec i tried so hard to force my left side to catch up w/ my right...

i tried to do some lateral raises, i can't grip the db right (my left wrist bends when i raise the db) and my left is definitely weaker...

need help pls...

what do u guys think?

Did you injure your wrist perhaps?

Does it feel like the dumbbell just doesn't "sit" correctly in your hand?

Maybe experiment by doing machine lateral raises (the kind where the pads are against the upper arm). If machine laterals are ok, but exercises in which you have to grasp a handle/dbell/bbell gives you trouble, it might be a hand or wrist injury.

i would do some isolateral machine work for a little bit like maybe some hammer stuff, things like that. just to get some basic strength back into the weaker side. other thing is to just drop the weight to something that your left side can handle and then work your way up.

Sounds like to me your issue is serious nerve impingement (spinal or thru the shoulder girdle)

Nothing in your post sounded like a training issue to me....you have some damage somewhere.

Sleep on your left side? Xray of your C vert lately?

You can buy right from the source and get the high quality raw materials from Truenutrition.com or you can pay 1.5 to 3 times the cost for a glossy jug, fancy multicolored label, and $13000 per page magazine advertising costs....for a company I just might be making the product for anyway........

I agree sounds like nerve impingement, go see a chiro and get some soft tissue work done.

ya, i thought that this would be the best time to really get that mind-muscle connection w/ my chest since it's my weak part...now i really have to flex and contract the pectoral muscle to get the weight moving...
