Man boobs is a slang term used to describe enlarged breasts in adult males. Gynecomastia is the medical name for man boobs, but in this article, I will stick to calling them man boobs. Man boobs is a problem that affects between 40% and 60% of men in society today. Man boobs can cause embarrassment, anxiety and even depression.
Although there are many treatments available for enlarged male breasts, this article will focus on some exercises to get rid of man boobs. In order to get rid of man boobs, the fat on the chest must be burned.
So what exercises can you perform to burn the fat off your chest?
The answer: Focus on exercises that target your upper chest. Most people don’t know that building upper chest muscle will make your man boobs appear less noticeable while decreasing them in size significantly.
Two easy to perform exercises that will provide you with maximum benefit are:
1. The incline bench press The incline bench press is performed using an incline bench. First, you should load the weights onto the barbell. To perform this exercise correctly, lay with your back on the bench. Lower the bar with the weights from the rack down to your upper chest, and then raise the bar vertically. Inhale while lowering the bar, and exhale while raising it. Try not to bounce the bar off your chest as you could potentially injure yourself. Since your primary purpose is to lose weight, you should use light weights. Do 3 sets of 10 to 12 repetitions each time you perform incline bench presses. If you perform this exercise twice per week, your man boobs are guaranteed to disappear in a short time.
2. The decline pushup The decline pushup is another excellent exercise to get rid of man boobs. In order to perform this exercise correctly, lie with your chest facing down and your palms facing the floor. Your chest should be lowered towards the floor. Your arms should be a little more than shoulder width apart, and here comes the important part. You need to have your feet raised. I have found from experience that a chair or a foot stool will do the job. If you have your legs raised while doing pushups, the focus of the exercise will be the upper chest area. At this point in performing the exercise, your chest should be facing down and your head/chest should be lower to the ground than your feet. To perform the pushups, push your chest away from the floor by straightening your arms. You should try not to bend or arch your back during this process. Exhale while pushing up and inhale on the way down. Make sure to perform 3 sets of 6 to 12 repetitions when you do this exercise. If you do decline pushups or incline bench presses a couple times a week, you can kiss your man boobs goodbye.
Extra Bonus Tip: Do not perform chest exercises that focus on the lower chest such as horizontal bench presses or flat pushups. This will have the effect of making your man boobs appear much larger than they really are.
