I have just started the 30 Day Shred (today is day 3), so I measured my arms, legs, waist etc..etc.. and discovered to my horror that my right arm is 1 whole inch bigger than the left! I looked in the mirror and wobbled my bingo wings and the offending right arm is definetely flabbier.What do I do? Do I carry on as normal and hope they even out, or do a bit of extra work on the jelly arm?

Dont isolate your lagging arm. Keep training symmetrically, keeping reps/sets etc the same for both sides. They will even up, but it might take a while. Took about a year for my arms to be the same size (but they are still out by about 1/4"!)

I think it's pretty normal to have one arm or leg or even boob bigger than the other. I suffer from the arm issue and am greatly annoyed, but figure if I didn't notice it before I measured, it's likely no one else really notices it either.

Thanks! I think I might have been working my left arm a bit harder because it was originally the weaker one.smile

I do have the boob issue as well! That doesn't bother me because you can't really notice but now that I've noticed my arm I can definetely see the difference when I look at it! It has to go!
