Re: uneven legs

id be curious to hear some responses to this too. I cycle and i went in for a professional fit on my bike and they take all kinds of measurements for it, and it turns out one of my femurs is about 1/4 inch longer than the other(cant remember which side now). I had to shim my cleats on the shorter side to keep from teetering back and forth on my saddle and getting saddle sores on one buttcheek. But, he also told me that in normal life situations my body would be able to compensate for that amount and most likely had been doing so since i was able to walk. Forward to today, when i squat heavy or high reps my left quad is much more sore than the right. I assume this is because of that bone length discrepancy, but cant be entirely sure.
