Medically known as gynecomastia, man boobs affect half of all men even though we do not know how is it caused, what we do know is how you can mould your moobs into hard muscle.
Below are few things that can help you get rid of man boobs:
The boob occurs when a man’s oestrogen-to-androgen ratio is out of balance.
Research published in the International Journal of Andrology suggests this “may be the result of increased conversion of testosterone to oestradiol (potent oestrogenic hormone) in increased adipose tissue mass.” So your fat could be secreting female, moob-boosting hormones.
Ditch the drink
We all know that alcohol is packed with calories: it’s also a close second to dietary fat in terms of its calorie density, but that isn’t the issue here. Researchers from the UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles say “alcohol history” should be taken into consideration when treating gynecomastia.
In other words, if you have an unwanted cleavage and drink a lot then maybe you should cut back on booze.
Eat like a man
Nutrition will be key to losing, say, belly fat, but you still have to eat like a man. Don’t diet, starve yourself and nibble on rabbit food.
Drastically restricting food intake has not only been shown to reduce testosterone levels but it can induce something known as “refeeding gynecomastia.”
Become one with the bench
Learn to love the bench press. Not only because it’s arguably the most comprehensive exercise for your chest, but also because large, heavy compound movements will help to tip your hormonal ratio back in favour of “heavage” not cleavage.
Moobs: the workout
In view of all of the above research, here’s a science-backed program that’s designed to be completed twice per week. Coupled with the right nutrition it will mould your moobs into something you’re proud to show off at the beach.
