Unsure of the best exercise

Postby ISparkyI » Wed Jun 06, 2007 12:22 pm

G'day all

I have definitely learnt a lot during my training at the moment but I am wondering if someone could give me another piece of advice.

I am referring to Man Breasts :lol: *the most polite way I could put it* I have them and want to lose them fast . . . I am doing chest exercises with my weight training but am wondering what would be the most recommended exercise.

Any advice would greatly be appreciated.

Ageneral loss in body fat will help, along with devolping the muscle bulk in that area so if your at a gym do things that work on the chest muscles like chest press (sorry cant remember the mane of any other exercise)at home you could try push ups. We have some personal trainers who visit here they will probably give better advise!!

yeah definately weights i reckon. if theyre that bad like adros from the biggest loser as in excessive skin you might need surgery once you reach your goal weight.

nah Kate definitely not that bad . . I have been doing controlled weight loss with extensive cardio . . and can feel my chest strengthening . . maybe I just have to wait a bit longer for them to start toning up . .

be interesting to see what the PT's say.

I had really flabby blah looking upper arms, not the same I know, but I didn't focus on them particulary - just what came with cycling and they are really nice now, firm and shapely (I'm such a suck aren't I?) with just enough tone, but not Arnie. Just the general fat loss did most of it, plus the little strength from cycling (yes, it DOES work your arms)
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

You will start to get definition as you lose body fat so cardio is what helps that the most. The weights will be great to add extra definition but as mentioned you may not see it until more body fat is lost. All the exercises Chelle mentioned are great.

Here is a site where you can sort exercises by muscles so you can see you can add other chest exercises to your routine.

Best of luck.

Yummy Mummy is spot on! You can develop the biggest chest muscles on earth but if you have a layer of fat covering them no-one will ever know! So, as well as your cardio continue to work your chest area but also dont forget to train all body parts as many men I see in the gym only work on their upper body for some unknown reason :roll: :roll:
I usually get my clients to do either bench press, dumbbell flyes, pullovers, pushups or use pec dec if in gym but I prefer free weights as opposed to machines.
Hope that helps, sing out if you want to know anything else.
Liz :D
