I have a few qusetions about working out and weight training and (yall probably could but) I don't feel like anyone here could answer them. But do anyone know of any websites I could get help from? I've already found MuscleTalk and Teenbodybuilding but do anyone about any others?

Sorry, I don't know of any body building sites off the top of my head. But really, try asking your question. I work out pretty intensely, as do many of our members. many of us are quite athletic. If we don't know, we'll admit our ignorance [Smile]

My main question was is it normal for 1 side of your body to be stronger, or even larger then the other? Because when I (dumbell) curl I can do more reps on my left arm then my right (like 1 or 2 more) & from push-ups, I notice my left side is a little bigger then the other (I do plan on going to the gym, getting some help but I can't right now.)

Yup. I'd say it's completely normal for one side to be stronger, and/or larger. The body is rarely a perfectly symmetrical thing.

I do a martial art, and I find that my right side is quite a bit stronger than my left. I'm right handed, so it's my dominant side. My punches are stronger on the right... things like that.

Ok, I just didn't see it like that anywhere on TV or online so it had me thinking, thanks!

Yep. I'm lop-sided, too. My left leg is much stronger, but I have better balance on the right. My right arm is stronger, too. My trainer has me train a little more on certain sides (depending on the exercise) to compensate.
