    This morning I noticed (applying moisturizer in the mirror) as my pecs have gotten bigger (result of mostly incline and flat benching) they are getting more muscular and pulling away from my sides and more flat and centered, rather than rounded, a good thing

    Also noticed that the fat that was spaced evenly is beginning to accumulate more unevenly and down towards the bottom and where my nipples are icon_confused.gif

    I was wondering...if I do more decline exercise (which I must admit I generally do) or is their any other chest exercises that might prevent it from getting worse?

    I dont know about the solution to the problem but I read an article from Men's health ( online) where they said that decline bench press doesnt provide any more optimal benefits from a regular and incline bench press. They recomended to stick with the regular and incline bench press. I am not an expert but that is what they said.

    Another thing I have heard is that too much soy can do that aswell ( as well as affect your libido) You might want to look at the nutrition choices to see if they are lending towards that as well.

    I am not an expert at all just picking this up from health articles that I read.

    I dont mean to insult , but do you do steroid. Just this weekend I attend a bodybuilding competition. Most of the guy including the overall winner have a round circle around their nipple. No prize ..for guessing why.

    is it lavender moisturizer by any chance? Lavender has the ability to cause breasts in men; check the ingredients.

    What? All we need now is a lot of lavender, a stable of boys, and we can start the site LactaitingTwinks.com and rake in thousands of fetish dollars!

    I'm not going to assume anything about you.

    However, I will say that as soon as you mentioned "bitch tits" I thought "steroids" and "marijuana." Bitch tits can be a symptom of either.

    Post us a pic so we can see. If you have brought overall body fat down you may be exposing previously existing Gynecomastia. You should not as such have visible pockets of fat in the pecs. If fat is there from Gynecomastia, it will be under and around the aereola.

    Yea unfortunately I have had the same issue. It's much less pronounced now than it was because I regularly do lower chest exercises, and have cut my overall body fat. A lot of the time you see guys in the gym just concentrating on exercises targeting middle and outer chests while neglecting the lower chest.

    Try cable cross overs, with the pulley at its lowest setting which will target the chest from the bottom, and decline presses. Also you can do push ups with your hands positioned so they target your lower chest. I break up my sets of push ups by hitting upper, middle, and lower chest to failure.

    You know you can't spot reduce, but you can beef up the area so the issue is less pronounced.

    Study up on gynecomastia.

    There's a number of things that cause gyno. Only about 1/3 of the population has the gene for it, and contrary to wrongful belief, not everyone has the receptors to get gyno. It's caused by estrogen receptors in your chest. Sources of estrogen could be yourself (all testosterone breaks down to DHT and estrogen). Both estrogen (the female sex hormone) and testosterone (the male sex hormone) are steroids. Steroids are those hormones soluble in lipids. Cortisone is another steroid. Common sources of estrogen include food, exogenous testosterone, prescription drugs, soy, pot. Your indigenous testosterone automatizes to estrogen which will cause gyno, as it comes up until you get around 28, and it peaks. It's easily treatable with a SERM, or estrogen receptor antagonist, available online, or through a doctor. Some folks naturally have gyno. The gene is present in about 1/3 of the population, and some folks will get it no matter what their behavior. You can have them surgically removed (the mammary glands) and you won't have the problem anymore.

    It's not clear in your posting whether gyno is your question, or if you just don't like the shape of your chest. If your issue is the latter, know that there's not a lot of ways that you can change how your chest lays as it develops. For development, incline dumbbell presses are the most effective. Flat bench works your shoulders, triceps, much more, and, if you don't do posterior deltoids exercises shoulder impingement is a given. Flat bench with a barbell is especially bad on your shoulder girdle.

    About the only way you can change the shape of your chest is by expanding the fascia in certain places and not in others. That's commonly done by spot injections in the spots you want to enlarge. You enlarge the casing, and the muscle grows into it. The fascia is a limiting factor in muscle growth, and, if you manually expand it, the muscle will grow into it. Slang for spot injection is Pump and Pose. The original Pump and Pose uses stuff I sure wouldn't put in my body. If you choose that path, a better choice is MCT oil with 4% BA.

    A note for the ignorant here, raised by MsclDrew's comment about fat distribution: Anyone using elevated levels of testosterone will have a much more even fat distribution than someone who doesn't. He spoke about his uneven fat distribution which is indicative of someone who doesn't have high levels of androgen in their system.

    That's not necessarily true. You have to take into consideration how a person's body responds to androgen and other hormones which varies from person to person, not just how much of they have of it.

    Yes--they weren't ambiguous at all. They actually suggested skipping the decline altogether to avoid the man boobs (bitch tits).

    vbsuperman saidIm not an expert, but try looking into gynecomastia. it has something to do with a hormonal imbalance of some sort. Many guys suffer from it, but its usually found in fat dudes. Not to use myself as a scape goat, but look closely at the two pictures on my profile. i think i have a little of what you are talking about. just genetics i suppose. hope it helps


    Google on gyno. You're clueless here. It doesn't always have to be a hormonal problem. Some folks just have the receptors. I don't have the receptors. It doesn't matter what I do. I couldn't get gyno if I wanted. Some folks have low testosterone, and the test / est ratios are out of whack, but, that's not always the case. flex89, and his dad, and dad's brother, ALL have it. They're not juiceheads. It's just genetic.

    Lots of folks have gyno, and have never been near pot, AAS, or a gym.

    You're right though about obesity: It does lower your testosterone, and you see the result of having to much estrogen and to little testosterone.

    I'm guessing you're right on track here.

    It could also be getting worse, because his test is finally coming up for a few years here.

    I'd lay money it was mostly there before.
