One side of my abs are bigger than the other

by will

what if 1 side of my abs are bigger than the other. How do I fix that? It is my right side that is smaller.

Looks something like this...

__ __
__ ~~
__|__ <- not exactly like that but the top 2 of the six are out of proportion.. or so it seems.


One think to think about...have your abs always been this way or is this a result of an injury?

One thing you could do is focus on your right side abdominals. For an oblique crunch you would bring your right elbow to your left knee. You could also do a right side plank or right side bends.

Hope that helps!

Honestly try this NEW
by: Anonymous

Do some sit ups with your knees angled more to the left and then more to the right. Keep going till you feel what abb muscles are being worked the most.
Angled to the left \\ it should build your right abbs
Angled to the right. // your left abbs
Then do whichever combination of sit ups, crunches or leg raises using your legs angle to work the abbs you want.

when i did my crunches I would lean my right knee slightly towards the left. And I would work my right side of my abs harder than my left. Now my left side the second ab down is extremely smaller. How can I fix this.

by: Anonymous

Well one thing I've learned in this situation, that one can try over working there right side resulting in tears, and injury. My suggestion is make sure you are properly doing your crunches. Hope it helps.

How my abs also got wierd
by: Anonymous

My light abs used to be perfectly proportional,less than a year ago I started feeling occasional stomach twisted-like pains during and after sprinting or running sessions outdoors on uneven grounds(jungles,rocks,etc). The more the occasional pains became painful(with time)the more my top-right ab got bigger. Im still in my teenage years and I havnt asked any doctors yet since Im not proud of whats happening to my abs,if anyone finds out a cure I would please like to know,I dont wanna grow up like this

position your situps
by: Anonymous

i actually think it has to do with your sit-up position so let me try to recommend something if one side is bigger try sitting slanted if your feet are anchored while doing sit-ups for example if your right side is slightly bigger try being slanted like this ____ and if your left is _____
\ /
otherwise just try to me completely straight for an even spread slight differences are not to be concerned since all our bodies are not perfectly symmetrical

by: london

my lower abs .R. BIG..... REAL BIG..

Can you help me?
by: Crooked Abs

I have a similar problem ( 1 )( 2 )
( 3 )( 4 )
( 5 )( 6 )
Ab muscle 1 (right side) is noticeable smaller than 2. We're talking about a 30% difference. So what exercise do I do to even it out? More oblique v-ups on one side? Or just leaning...if I use it more will it increase in size? I was thinking about getting a single ab implant over the top of it. Any thoughts?

Same Situation
by: Caleb

Mine very similar, although it looks like a 6-pack on my left and a 4-pack on my right...so I have a 5-pack total. And my right side is larger/sticks out farther than the left, if that makes sense. I have tried working my right side more, but I'm afraid that it won't help give me the 3-pack on that side, that it would only make them bigger and stay as 2. Would you suggest I keep working the right side more, or do you have any different ideas?


by: Anonymous

my are the same the right side is biger but i notised when i do situps i lean more to my left side so i started leaning more to the right and it has started to help so just try working out your right side and do a few extra reps more when you work out it will take a whil but if you wont to get them even fast do workouts only mint for the right side becaus even then your left still is worked somewhat
