almost an a cup (j/k)
« on: July 13, 2009, 01:23:28 AM »
i want rid of my man boobies.

okay, they are not huge but def are the byproduct of a working out incorrectly. now i just want small and tight. any advice?

i was thinking less weights and more repetitions. im working on building other areas of my body (calves) and reducing my chest and the area directly beneath it.

i have this weird upper stomach area that extends out and i would like to modify it as well.

any practical advice on changes i can make to my workout routine to firm up my man boobs (im tired of the speed bump jiggle)? i dont want bigger, im fine with my size, i just want firm. i kinda have this slope-titay thang goin on.

best,
d

With age, the boobies droop. You could lower your body fat, but that will be all over, not just your tits.  Or, surgery.  If everything is looking healthy and generally firm and strong and you are in good shape for your age, well, BRAVO, so why not just assume nature's way for you.

You just need to know how to work your chest -- there are different free weight exercises for different parts of the chest.

Basically it's incline chest press and decline chest press.  And then incline chest fly and decline chest fly.  There are also some variations of these to do with cable machines when you get bored.

If you don't know what I'm talking about and need visuals, google those terms for images and/or look on youtube.  Anything that involves flys will generally by nature involve lighter weights than a press, just because of the movement involved in that specific exercise.

Of course, if you are starting from having a bit of flab in your tits and tummy then you need to be doing at least 30 min. of cardio as well as adjusting your diet.

It's kind of hard to tell from your first post what you are doing in the gym and how often, so...

Honey, go to Victoria's Secret and get an "uplifting" bra.  That will prevent jiggling. ;)

Dearest D,

I don't know if you have heard of this place, it is new and located in Los Angeles, a drive thru plastic surgery clinic.   They call it Jiffy Boob.   ;D  Have the best day

I have slight "man boobs" that seem to appear when I am retaining water or when I was a bit heavier.  I asked my doctor about it and he didn't seem too alarmed -- except he did say that if they start lactating, I am to contact him immediately.  He's a funny guy and we joke around about stuff sometimes, so I asked if he was kidding, but he said no, it can happen.  So, I guess you might want to be on the lookout for leaking!

Okay, here's the skinny. Flex your pecs and feel your chest. Anything that you can pinch off your pecs is fat. If you don't pinch very much then you need to work your chest less and your back and shoulders more to improve symmetry. If you do have fat then you need to diet and exercise to reduce your body fat, which will be all over your body- there is no such thing as spot fat reduction without surgery. If you already have low body fat then you may have some gynecomastia, which is male breast tissue and has to be surgically removed if it bothers you.

Of course you could just refer to yourself as "full figured" and call it a day.

thanks ford!

hehe, i like that pic by the way. the dude to the left of chic has a mighty nice ass. the other blokes are hot too.

ill do more back exercises, i kinda slack off on them. my titties aren't huge but i don't want to continue doing exercises that will exacerbate the problem. ill have to post a side pic and front pic a lil later.

thanks for the advice, my man boobies have been squeezed and assessed.
