Uneven Strength

Hey guys, my right arm is much stronger than my left arm; if I want to improve my pullup number should I concentrate on strengthening my left arm or should I continue doing pullups?

Does it really matter if one arm is much stronger than the other one?

You should do more pullups and chinups. You're mostly pulling with your back anyway. The imbalance will even out eventually.

This.

If you're not favoring a side doing bilateral exercises it will even up.
