    Unhappy man boobs and chest excercises?

    hi

    i am 6.4 and weigh about 240. i am 19. i suffer from man boobs, im not sure if its fat or gyno but either way i'm sick of it. my bf is about 19%. what i wana know is if i start working my chest hard, will it help burn the fat or will i just grow muscle UNDER the fat and make my moobs look bigger? and if someone could share a link of manboob killing workouts i'd appreciate it. thanks
    i can't seem to win against my cravings but every day i wake up, put my kit on, and give it 200% in the gym. people look at me like i'm a mad man because they know that i push harder, run faster and train longer than any one of them..yet i still look the way i do..

    To get rid of manboobs just lose fat overall there is nothing you can do to specifically tone your chest up.If you build muscle underneath you will still have man boobs if there is too much fat on top.Once you get to lower fat levels you can hit your chest harder if its a weak area but you cant help at the minute apart from dieting

    If its gyno you need surgery usually but on this site gyno is pretty rare its normally just chub

    ^ this

    Work at dropping the fat (diet, exercise) and build some muscle. It will take some time, but you will get rid of them.

    If you post a pic it would be easier to differentiate between gyno and just fat. Most of the time its pretty apparent if its gyno or not: if you feel hardish lumps its gyno... if its just loose tissue its fat.


    imo if you truly are 19% bf (which i doubt your probably more unless ouve been lifting for a while) you wouldnt have moobs.

    Hi mate,

    I have the same problem - I hate my chest and have done for years.

    How have you worked out your BF? I suspect your BF is slightly higher. I'm 6'2" 210 and have a 28% BF according to my bathroom super all singing dancing scales but I'm getting this confirmed by calipers at weekend as I've heard that these scales can't be trusted...

    Unfortunately I've exhausted the internet with this question and there isn't any sort of magical exercise that will get rid of the moobs but what I keep hearing (whether it's true or not) is that muscle gains energy from the shortest possible route therefore exercising the chest area will enable the pecs to take fat from the chest?!?!. I've been advised that the arm bike is one of the best aids and also rowing.

    If you want to go down the route of increasing chest muscle to improve definition then concentrate on pectoral exercises.

    All this being said - drop your overall weight and BF and they will begin to recede.

    Look at my progress pix taken side on - I have before and after shots from 230 to now (210) and you can see they have shrunk (slightly )

    I'm aiming to bulk my chest, shoulders and arms to improve the proportion and then burn the fat around my middle to taper it in and create the "triangle".

    I'm finding I don't cringe as much these days when I look in the mirror but I still hate them damn pointy squidgy things !

    Good luck bro !
    Rep me if you like what I'm sayin!

    5-2: 218.1 | 12-2: 219.4 | 19-2: 218.9 | 26-2: 215.1 | TOTAL: -3

    5-3: 216.4 | 12-3: 214.4

    STARTED = 223lbs (Jan 2014) | NOW = 214.4lbs | GOAL = 180lbs by Dec'14
