Background: I grew up playing a ton of baseball and as a pitcher, I developed a great deal of asymmetry in my shoulders. I noticed a big discrepancy, especially in my Olympic lifts. Working dumbbell variations of the lifts really helped me to bring my left shoulder up to a similar capability as my right shoulder.

Intended Stimulus: Even out any asymmetry in strength and stability between shoulders.

Strategy: Be honest with yourself with a weight that both shoulders can do evenly. This may be an easier workout for your dominant side than your weak side but that's the whole point!
