Default One hand bigger than the other

I'm not sure how I've messed up, but my bicep and forearm is noticeably bigger in my right hand. I've probably used my dominant hand more when doing 2 handed exercises (such as the row or the bicep curl). How do I fix this?

IS there a noticeable difference in strength? Just do a couple more reps with your smaller arm and it should balance it out using dumbbells.

or just do as many reps as you can with your left and then only do that amount with your right. You want to fix this otherwise you will end up with a torn biceps tendon or some kind of strain at some point from that right bicep taking a lot of the brunt.

Is it normal for your left leg to be stronger for right handers? Since you lift off the ground with your left leg when you go for a layup?

Yes, I jump higher with my left foot.

Yes, I can lift 10-15 lbs more with my right hand. I try to lift a weight that I can handle with both hands, yet my left seems to quit first.
