I dont get it

When i do basic curls my left arm can go forever but my right arm stalls after a short ammount of time. I woulda thought my right arm would be stronger. When it starts to stall I can't figure out why because its not under strain at all or when i drop the weight it doesnt even feel worked out. I'm also using a lot lighter weights than what I could use. any ideas?

Stop batting from the right and try switch hitting.

One of your arms is ALWAYS going to be more dominant than the other. I'm left handed and I can do 12-14 reps, but with my right hand, I'm more around 8 reps. Sometimes it's vice/versa so in order to build up your right arm, go less reps with more weight. Hopefully that'll work....

What do you consider a basic curl....and are you using dumbells or barbells?
