Simple yet effective ones that will be your secret weapon to building a “chest of steel”?
Health and fitness experts will tell you there are 3 really effective exercises for man boobs. The good news is you really only need to do them twice a week, an hour of gym time per week in total, tops.
1. Bench Press
Lie on the bench, looking up. Push the barbell up in front of you toward the ceiling, then release slowly. For this (and the next exercise) start by selecting a weight that you gives you a bit of stress, but not too much that you can’t push/pull it at all. Go for 3 sets of 8 repetitions to start with. At every session, slowly increase either the repetitions or the weight.
2. Cable Crossovers
Stand in front of a pulley station. Hold the 2 handles horizontally at your side. Slowly, pull forward until your hands cross, then release slowly. Again, aim for 3 sets of 8, and increase at each session.
Get on the floor, face down. Ensure your arms and hands are shoulder length apart, legs stretched out. Lower yourself without touching the floor, then raise yourself up to the starting position. Do as many as you can. At your next session, try and increase your count.
If you are looking for the best exercises for man boobs, you can’t do better than with the bench press, cable crossovers and push-ups. After you get comfortable with working-out, start some cardio/aerobic work like walking, jogging or cycling.
Finally, in your quest for exercises for man boobs, do not forget your diet. A well-balanced diet will help to flatten your chest. Give yourself a month and you will start to see results. Won’t that be great? Continue to look for ways to battle your “boobies”. Do your own research. Not all exercises help. Learn what food to eat and what to avoid. Take charge and start now!
