What's going on Zen Dude fam? Today we're gonna talk about how to get rid of man boobs with the jump rope.

The Two Different Types of Man Boobs

Excess fat in boob area

These are the man boobs that happen when you have fat deposits on your chest. You might be tempted to try and reduce that fat by targeting that area, but you cannot do spot reduction. You can't just do push-ups all day until your man boobs disappear. Instead, you need to remove body fat from your entire body. As you're fat composition decreases over time, eventually those man boobs will decrease and your chest muscles will begin to become tighter. One you lose chest fat, you can add on strength training exercises and targeted chest workouts to get the physique you want.

Gynecomastia

This is a medical condition where fat tissue builds up around the nipple in the male breast. This usually happens when there is a hormonal imbalance of estrogen and testosterone levels, or you're just going through puberty.  If you're a dude who has some fat tissue around your nipples, don't stress out. This is something that happens all the time for young boys or young men when they are going through puberty. It may be something you experience from 9 or 10 years old all the way up until your early 20s, so don’t stress about it, this breast tissue is natural and there isn’t any amount of exercise you can do to get rid of this. If you're really concerned about it, you can go see your doctor and they can talk you through it.

The Nutrition Plan

First things first, if you’re trying to lose any kind of fat, you’re gonna wanna get on a calorie deficit. This means you are consuming less calories than you are expending, which ensures that you lose body fat. The macronutrient distribution of those calories including proteins, carbohydrates and fats are going to be very important as well. To find out the right amount of macronutrients and calories you should be consuming, check out our nutrition calculator. Fatty tissue loves gobbling up junk food, so stick to healthy foods such as lean proteins and lots of fruits and vegetables. Many dairy products contain the synthetic hormone rBGH, which promotes breast development when combined with estrogen. Bottom line, avoid dairy that comes from hormone treated animals.

The Workout Plan

Today, we're gonna take you through a workout routine which will help you burn lots of calories. This in turn burns more body fat, which will help get rid of your man boobs and also firm up your chest. Today's workout will focus on weight loss and building muscle by using push-ups and jump rope exercises.
