    simple use dumbells more and single cable exercises and dont do your left arm for a few weeks. Everyone has a slightly bigger arm so dont worry to much about it.

    Masturbate with your right hand. Even if it doesn't feel as good.

    Re: balancing out arm size

    just do everything with your right hand, like brushing your teeth etc for a while, thats really the difference, but theres no point stopping lifting with the left hand, just let it keep getting bigger id say regardless lol

    Train both arms as you normally but put a bit more volume into your right arm, it'll soon catch up!

    Re: balancing out arm size

    It's normal to have one limb slightly larger than the other - even the bones in your dominant arm and leg are normally ever so slightly heavier/denser/longer/thicker than the non dominant limb.

    If it's a very noticable problem with muscle imbalance then stick with one arm DB and cable exercises, make sure form is equal for both limbs, and always start with your weakest arm first and let that limit how many reps you do with your stronger arm.
