    Exclamation How can you tell the difference between man boobs and pecs?

    Just as the title says. Since I have started working out, I have developed what are either small man boobs or slightly more developed pecs. I havn't eaten that much more, and have been doing lots of chest workouts, but my chest isn't hard at all, even when I try to tense it (not how you actually tense your chest though lol). I am about 13% BF if that helps. I can post a picture or more stats if it is needed.
    How can I tell which I have got? Cheers.

    I have been going to the gym for about a month, 3 times a week. Before that I had done some light db workouts (all I have at home), but nothing worth noting. I'll just post a pic.

    Muscle can still jiggle, just as a whole. If I shake my arm I can feel my tricep jiggling cause its pretty big, but when I tense it it gets hard as a rock. The difference is fat will jiggle like a liquid and muscle will just move as a whole, but the jumping up and down thing is a lousy test.

    combination of both and of course diet.

    Training with weights will help build muscle making your pecs strogner and cardio will reduce bodyfat

    Based on your pic I'd say probably not. But that only shows one angle - more pics would make it easier to see.
