Do any of you who do the BUP find that one side is a lot easier than the other?

Yes. I always attributted it to the fact that one arm is basically 'smarter' than the other, not neccissarily stronger (as far as producing force).

I am right handed, therefore my right hand knows how to press up when my brain says up. My left, however, seems to have a different interpretation of what 'up' truly means. This is always present, but much more pronounced when something requires as much balance as a BUP does.

Yes, right side is stronger due to some left shoulder issues. When I do them consistantly I the left usually catches up w/ the right. Great rehab exercise.
