    Unhappy Humongous leg muscle imbalance

    Only have started working out in the last 3 months and noticed my right leg is completely useless.
    I can barely jump on one leg with my right leg, and noticed that most of my normal jumps were mostly powered by my left leg.
    I can do assisted pistol squats with my left leg, but my right leg just straight up collapses midway through an assisted pistol squat.
    I can't calf raise on one leg with my right leg properly, my foot just doesn't extend fully and I feel nothing in my calf whereas I can do 30 calf raises with my left leg and my left calf hurts after it. My left leg's thighs and calf is also much more muscle-y and wider than my right one.

    Its causing me great stress lately and most of unilateral exercises are either too easy or un-doable.
    If anyone who has fixed such a muscle imbalance in the past enlighten me with what to do I would be grateful

    You may have undiagnosed medical issue. Or perhaps, your right leg is shorter than left one?

    I agree with the above ^^^ see a medical professional.
    A chiropractor or physical therapist that works with athletes may be able to diagnose and help you.

    Lightbulb

    I'm pretty sure it's not THAT serious. I have noticed my few of my friends to have a similar dominant leg situation where they can't do assisted pistol squats with one leg while they can with the other. Although my imbalance is more pronounced it has not affected my daily life or sports at all.
    But it would be nice to even out the imbalance thus I asked for you guys to help

    In squats etc, your dominant leg is doing most of the work. Do real unilateral exercises such as single leg extensions and leg curls, single leg leg press, or better still a unilateral leg press if your gym has one.

    I can integrate the leg extensions in my routine but the others I cant since I dont/cant go to gym.

    Go super light with weight for unliteral exercises, and progress consistently. If it's too easy for your left leg, so be it. Your right leg will eventually catch up.

    You might even try doing twice as many reps on the weaker leg or only work the weaker leg on the unilateral movements for awhile.
