Are you making progress? Doing different weights with each arm is going to give you an imbalance. Obviously lifting a heavier weight will give you a different stimulus than lifting a lighter one. Are you eating well?

I'm not sure if I'll make progress I'll know in 2-3 months. Training with different weights might give me imbalance IF training with an heavier load provide a stronger stimulus. I'm not sure about that.

I generaly eat too much

It does. Unless you feel like you need to reinvent the wheel, there is no point. It's common sense, but there are surely some studies out there that look at this. Google it and you'll keep from wasting a bunch of time and effort.

No such thing!

If you don't know whether your method is going to work, then you have problems. Narrow it down to these three basic outcomes:
-It won't work.
-It won't work well.
-It will work well.
Based on everything I know, you're going to fall somewhere between "It won't work" and "It won't work well". I'm sure the majority of the people on the board, if not all, will agree.

There are plenty of proven routines and methods. It honestly sounds like you're just having a science experiment and you're not too concerned with getting stronger. If you actually want to get stronger and not waste your time, you could do some reading and find out why your theory is false while following a good routine. It is not at all complicated if you take the time to educate yourself.

If you do make strength gains, they will not be maximal. Period. The frequency and percentages you are using dictate that this is not an effective program. IF you are serious about strength training or bodybuilding, then you're wasting your time.

With that said, I appreciate the fact that you're trying to do something different. I hope you will take a look at what you're doing and realize what you need to do. Good luck

You are right, I'm doing a test and I'm more concerned by the results than the gains. We will see in a few weeks/months how it works.

Workout n3

Standing Press : 45kg
Deadlift : 131kg
Curl : 18/21.5kg

Ok then, cool. It wasn't 100% clear before.

Workout n4

Standing Press : 45kg
Deadlift : 132kg
Curl : 18/21.5kg

The Deadlift was not as easy as it should have been... but I have been sick this week and didn't sleep well so... I'll have to wait until the next workout to know. If it is still too hard I'll decrease the weight to 110 or 120kg.

Workout n5

Deadlift : 133kg
Standing Press : 45.5kg
Curl : 18.5/22kg

Deadlift was much easier so it was simply a lack of nervous energy the last time. In 2 weeks I'll test my 1RM on curl to see which arm improved the most (the arm trained at 70% of 1RM or 80% ?).

Workout n6

Standing Press : 46kg
Deadlift : 135kg
Curl : 18.5/22kg

The Press was really easy I hope I'll be as easy as that when I reach 50kg. I'm not sure about the curl but I feel the arm trained at 22kg (80%) isn't getting stronger... Maybe 80% is too much.

I did my Deadlift in Conventional Style. I used to do Sumo and didn't attempt a conventional deadlift since 4-5 years but it was good I'll continue with conventional. I may be a little bit stronger in conventional. Time will tell.

Workout n8

Standing Press : 47kg
Deadlift : 137.5kg and Sumo 137.5
Curl : 19/22.5kg

I bought a new barbell longer than the old one (2m versus 1m75) but it doesn't really make a difference of performance. I even found that the Conventional Deadlift was harder with the new barbell. Sumo was the same. I don't have an olympic barbell. Probably that it would be a little bit easier with a good barbell.
