Breasts. Yes, men do have breasts. There are several medical conditions that can cause breast enlargement in men. One is gynecomastia, which can cause swollen breast tissue and even breast tenderness. This condition is usually caused by some issue with testosterone, leading to more estrogen in the body.
However, for the majority of men, man boobs are simply a result of having excess fat on the chest. Your pectoral muscles are underneath the layer of fat. So, by losing body fat and gaining muscle, you can work to get rid of your man boobs.
You cannot target fat loss in one particular area on the body, but you can work to strengthen the muscles in specific areas. If you’re looking to lose weight, getting regular cardiovascular exercise can help.
You can get a decent chest workout at home by doing push-ups. Or, you can head to your local gym. Getting proper form is important — it will make the exercises more effective and keep you safe from injury.
