A friend of a friend LOL has a small case of man boobs and seems to be getting worse. Does anyone have any good tips or workout ideas that he can do in the gym?
It depend if is just fat or if is hormonal. If is hormonal, not any workout in the gym will help. If is fat, the best is to do aerobic .
I´ve got a couple of friends and no matter how much exercise they do, they still seem to have a small case of moobies. You don´t tend to see thin men with them so weight loss must be the key.
Wow, after reading through all of the nonsense in this thread, I almost didn't post. But I want to help you out.
Does he take any anabolic steroids? If so, he needs estrogen inhibitors, and he is an idiot for not cycling properly.
Second, does he drink beer? Beer is highly estrogenic and can cause Moobs.
Several people recommended aerobic training. And all of them are idiots. What he should be doing is HIIT training and fat burning complexes with weights.
It is probably very safe to say that his diet is absolute crap. He needs to eat right, train right, and live right.
just he has to think normal and hsould not feel discomfort about that..
It's called gynecomastia.
It can oly be reduced by surgery.
Check out the range of 'BigBoy Wiggle' Training bras. Plus get him to check his Estrogen levels... that female hormone is widely resposible for Chicken Brests.
Maybe you should blog about it on squidoo?
Maybe a bit off topic, but did you know men can actually get breast cancer?
Pear diver, did not understand what you meant with BigBoy Wiggle' Training bras?
Raineer, not sure if men can get breast cancer.
Anyone else have any suggestions for getting rid of man boobs?
What part of "Wiggle those Man Boobs Big Boy!!" did you not understand
Free weights and exercises designated for upper arms, shoulders, and chest. Workouts would be at least 3 days per week, 20-30 minutes each day. Running, if they can, would also help.
Not to mention, a well balance eating plan and calorie watch.
Here http://hubpages.com/hub/weight-training-fitness-chest is an article I wrote on the matter of weight training. Hope it helps.
THAT comment surprising hasn't opened up more commentary.......yet
Better to have some push ups.............and avoid watching naked girls on net..
pushups and dips will also help, cross unders will to. If he adds muscle the bitch titts will dissapear! Maybe he needs to layoff the beer and hit the gym 5 days a week!
More beer to increase girth in other areas so that the man boobs don't show as much...best solution all round
Wear a wrist watch and set the timer for every hour when you are at home. Start out with 10 and add one push up the next hour. The next day pick up where you left off. Ex. day 1. hour 1. 10 pushups
hour 2 11 pushups hour 3 12 puch ups hour 4 13 push ups. Day 2 hour 1 14 push ups and so on. Next you need to do at least 20-30 minutes of cardio 3-5 times a week with your heart rate in the fat burning zone. That means slow and steady. Lastly, the hardest part is don't fill up on junk after you work out. Eat things like almonds, yogurt, fruit etc..
I went to a lecture a few weeks ago on hormones. One of the topics that came up was that with food being so altered that there is to much estrogen in things like soy etc.... Men eat these like the women and are getting "soft" where they shouldn't like the man boobs you speak of. First thing to do would be get his hormones checked. If estrogen is the culprit then some testosterone can be prescribed. Also altering his foods would be a solution.
Exercise is great but if the hormone are off your still out of luck
ridding yourself of these. Good luck.
karmicfilly has truly hit upon the answer to "moobs" as they have been called. Because of the hormones placed in our meats as well as the effect that pesticides have on hormones both men and women are changing. The answer however is not to take testosterone in my opinion as the key to fixing the issue is the estrogen/progesterone ratio. Eating foods that contain less hormones is a start but will probably not reverse the imbalance that already exist. I believe you will find a good natural male progesterone cream very helpful. The cream that I've found effective is sold by Restored Balance. It also works wonders for prostate issues.
aerobic workouts, cut fatty foods & beer
possibly it would be great just to go ahead and finish the process and become a woman! Then write a hub (or several) about it!
Chances are his body is predisposed to store fat there. It can be very distressing, especially for a young man. Tell him to look up gynecomastia on google.
I've always said that anyone with a specific medical condition should visit a physician first.
If it's hormonal, workout only will not solve the problem.
A healthy eating plan combined with exercise like push ups (incline,decline, flat), cardio-workouts and weight lifting plus a
system like natural herb supplements to help balance the level
of 'positive' testosterone while lowering the estrogen levels,
along with burning the fat from the chest, could help.
These combined options maybe a suitable choice to avoid going under costly surgery and possible consequent scarring.
I believe only surgery can fix gyno.
Manboobs is fat basically do lots og cardio drink plenty of water and do chest workouts.
So as your fat goes the muscle will build.
This really works, I got manboobs on antidepressants and i got rid of them, I have a 45 inch chest of muscle now.
Good luck to your friend
i am an endocrine surgeon and i think you got to get things straight
moobs -gynaecomastia can appear at puberty and that is because of hormonal imbalance
it also can happen because of fat accumulation truncal obesity
steroid intake also causes it
it may occue in middle age due to excessive drinking leading to cirrhosis of thwe liver
what one needs to do is to evaluate their hormones and check for testosterone total and free
then if there is deficiency they need endocrine opinion
if they can be surgically corrected then webster's surgery is the answer
This is just because of the obesity problems. Just you have to reduce your excessive weight and do some exercise daily.
This can help you a lot.

I have been a part of Hubpages for a while now and try to comment on other peoples hubs when I read them. However for some reason although I am getting regular traffic (admittedly not high, but regular) I am not getting comments. What can I do to encourage people to leave a comment?
