    Been training for 3 - 4 years nothing major just few sets every 3 days pretty much with out fail.
    Started off using the bar bell but last year have switched to dumbbells. The bigger pec i can flex much more than the smaller one. The odd thing is the smaller side is much stronger. If I do a dumbell press the smaller side pushes straight up but the other all ways wants to the side. I might be imagining the size dif it is hard to tell.
    On another note since swtiching to dumbbells i have noticed a bigger improvement and things are growing nicely. I do incline press, flies and flat press

    How much can you bench though?
    Nobody is perfectly symmetrical on any muscle.

    Interesting that one side, when DB benching, wants to push out to side. I had same issue. I’ll ask my physio, think it was poor external rotation of shoulder.

    what do you do for work? my dad did construction for decades and found that one arm/shoulder was bigger than the other but the smaller one was stronger. possibly due to one arm holding a tool or object in place and the other arm constantly being lifted and doing all the moving

    you might have your answer there. i'd say a lot of people that have done many years of manual work will find muscular imbalances
