So I've been slowing ramping up my training this year after recovering from a fractured neck last year (gymnastics accident) and while I'm getting stronger again and putting on some muscle I've started to see a noticeable difference in size and strength in my chest. Left pec is much more filled out than the right and stronger over a range of exercises.

Has anyone had trouble with this before? and can anyone suggest any moves that target one side off the chest?

Thanks

There's a similar thread discussing it before : http://bar-barians.forumotion.com/t2946-chest-problem

Depending on your injury, that may have had some impact on your musculature.

Couple of other thoughts, overall you will have a dominant side - this will naturally be slightly bigger unless you do a lot symmetrical training (More-over since you have been injured you might not have used your right side as much, thus causing some wasting...)

A Simple thing to improve size is just normal press-ups/dips etc and focus on making sure your form is correct and not working the left side more...

You can also try focusing on (assisted)one-arm press-ups for right side
