Man *** is a common condition among men of all ages. Experts maintain that 33%-40% of all men have Man *** to some degree during their life. Man *** , which is medically known as Gynecomastia, is not given adequate medical treatment by the formal health organizations because it is not considered a disease, just a cosmetic condition. But those who suffer from man *** know how hard it is, and while it may not be life threatening, it certainly destroys the quality of life, especially social life. Let's face it, most women don't find Man *** appealing.
One of the most immediate things men who suffer from man *** can do in order to firm up their chests is to perform exercises which target the chest muscles. While exercise alone cannot eliminate man *** entirely, it can certainly provide some improvement to those who suffer from man *** while they begin a more complete treatment.
One of the best chest fitness exercises is the chest flies routine. But how should we perform this exercise to make the most of it and to lower the risk of injury? How to maximize its effectiveness on those stubborn deposits of chest fat?
You need a few things to perform chest flies:
1. A press bench. If you go to a gym they are bound to have a couple of those. If you want to buy one, make sure that you can rotate it to a recline and decline positions and for it to have room to place your legs to support you while in decline position.
2. You need dumbells. These can also be found in any sport store and are not very expensive.
Here are the 3 variations of the chest flies routine:
1. The straight back flies - You lie straight on your back on the press bench. Bring your feet to rest on the edge of the bench so your knees are folded straight up. This helps to keep your back from injury. Begin the routine by holding the dumbells straight above you. Then, lower them slowly to the sides of your body while keeping the elbows slightly bent, until you feel the chest muscles stretching. Bring them back up slowly until they almost touch. Repeat this 10-15 times. This variation works the central area of the chest. This variation is of medium difficulty.
2. The recline flies - Raise the back rest of the bench press. It should be between 30-45 degrees. Sit on the bench. Place your feet on a stool or some books in order to reduce the strain on your lower back. Perform the exercise the same way as in the straight back flies. Again repeat 10-15 times. This variation works the upper area of the chest. This variation is of high difficulty.
3. The decline flies - Lower the back rest of the press bench. Lie down on the bench. Peform the chest flies the same way you did with the straight back flies. Again, repeat 10 - 15 times. This variation works the lower area of the chest. This variation is of medium difficulty.
Some important tips:
1. Work slowly - the muscles work better when you to the sets slowly.
2. Work the chest once every 3 days. Working it more often will not allow the muscles enough rest in order to develop as they should.
3. When you raise the dumbells, don't bang them against each other. This sends an unhealthy vibration through your arms which may hurt your bones and tendons.
3. Do all 3 variations. All in all do 12-15 sets. That means 4 - 5 sets of each variation.
There you go. You can start doing chest flies and improve your man *** . This will not eliminate your man *** entirely. But it is a good place to start.
Thousands of men around the world are getting rid of their man *** . You can do so too. Don't let life pass you by.
