How can I target fat loss in my pectoral area?

I’m 5’6″, 138 pounds. The rest of my body is trim and I have a very low fat/muscle ratio.. BUT I just can’t seem to get rid of the jiggle around my man boobs! It’s a teeny bit embarrassing since the rest of my body is pretty tight. Any exercises that will target fat loss for this area? Thanks!

    No you cannot target weight loss, only cardio will get your body to burn fat. I have the typical fat in the stomach area, no wheres else on my body, so I cardio like theres no tomoorw and my stomach has gone down greatly. Keep on working on it. You can burn the fat off.

    Spot Reduction Myth
    Contrary to what the infomercials suggest there is no such thing as spot reduction. Fat is lost throughout the body in a pattern dependent upon genetics, sex (hormones), and age. Overall body fat must be reduced to lose fat in any particular area. Although fat is lost or gained throughout the body it seems the first area to get fat, or the last area to become lean, is the midsection (in men and some women, especially after menopause) and hips and thighs (in women and few men). Sit-ups, crunches, leg-hip raises, leg raises, hip adduction, hip abduction, etc. will only exercise the muscles under the fat.

    If you do push-ups every day and cardio your pecs will look great within 3 months. Also ab workouts can only improve your pecs even more because it will lift your chest and back.

    Chest flyes are great for shredding the chest muscles. I don’t care what the eight or so people ahead of me say, you CAN target fat loss. You should combine your workouts with cardio to maximize fat burn, but truthfully if you do chest flyes with low weights for a lot of reps, you can definitely cut down your chest and get those nice striations. Just lie on a bench with your arms stretched out at your sides, arms slightly bent, and bring your hands together above you. Make sure you are focusing you attention on tightening the chest muscles and ensuring that’s where your movement is coming from, especially as you are releasing back to the rest position.

    Hope this helps, and good luck!
