Muscle man boobs

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
I am 5'9 and weigh 125 pounds, I am 5% body fat (not a ton of muscle tho, I've only been working out for about a year and a half now, and I am 15). I am in good shape and I work out for an hour every other day; lifting weights, ab lounge, etc. But I have never really developed "muscle boobs". What is the best/fastest way to develop muscle boobs. Should I do more on the ab-lounge or crunches or just keep doing what I'm doing and over time I will develop muscle boobs? Thanks for your help guys.

At 5'9'' 125 you gonna have to put on a decent amount of weight if you want nice pecs and to still stay in proportion.

I agree. However, you will naturally get bigger as you get older. If you keep exercising, I'm sure you'll be at least 150 by the time you're 17-18. You're body is growing so much right now that you can really make some amazing gains by weight lifting. Just keep changing your routine, avoid supplements (except maybe protein powder and a multi-vitamin), and avoid injury by using good form.

coachvu has great insight there - at 15, your body's in the growth stage. Workout with good form and avoid supplements other than a good multivitamin, maybe a good multi-oil (omega 3 and 6) pill, and your protein powder.

And EAT! You have to eat a good, clean diet. Do a google search on something like 'weightlifting clean diet' and you'll get the list of things for your meals. You'll get a lot of lists containing oatmeal, lean meats, and vegetables. The more you lift, the more you have to eat. They go hand in hand

Unless your body produces natural growth hormon (testerstrone), you most likey will not any big growth. Just wait until 18. That's when your body start pumping out testerstrone. By then, you can work out heavy and take a good quality protine and creatine, you will gain.

Puberty is EXACTLY when the body is producing growth hormone. And the testosterone production is already well in swing at 15.

At fifteen, you can see good gains with even a conservative lifting program.
Despite arguments on either side, keep using BOTH weighted and bodyweight exercises. Those bodyweight exercises help to strengthen the entire chain of muscles, which in turn helps prevent injury. If you want to work chest three days a week, make one of them bodyweight.


As for weights, I find bumbell press gets me more gains than barbell (my coach cut my lifting cuz I was putting on too much weight) because it puts more tension on the pec itself. It also strengthens the entire shoulder joint more because of the stabilizing effect of having to balance each arm seperately.

BUT ONLY doing pec exercises isn't good for your shoulder (besides looking funny). As the forward muscles strengthen they will tend to rotate the joint forward which hampers its mobility and stability.
Keep up with back exercises. Chinups, even just with bodyweight, can do wonders (for your grip strength, stability, and coordination as well). I do a lot of sport specific stuff that's rather hard to describe in text, but a good trainer can set you up with appropriate exercises.

I know everyone yaps about a spotter, but just as important is making sure the area is clear beside you when you're doing dumbell...

I DESTROYED my finger when I dropped a dumbell on top of another dumbell that had been left beside the bench.

Well, you have to make sure that you really want a muscle man boobs because most men are getting rid of it. Once you get it growing, it might not stop. As for me, you should be happy of what you have right now as long as your body is healthy. Health

Don't know if this will help with your situation, but might be worth a try. Recall reading this article about the cause of man boobs and ideas on how to get rid of them. "Bosom buddies" http://heartscanblog.blogspot.com/20...m-buddies.html

If you want b*tch tits then drink a lot of soy product and take estrogen supplements. If you want to develop your pectorals as in have them look visually acceptable you're going to have to pack on some pounds on your body as a whole. You're body composition is lean, but you have no mass whatsoever. Take weight gainer supplements or a protein supplement in general. Take a daily multivitamin. These things are essential to muscle development. Also push-ups everyday won't hurt. All of the recommended exercises in the above posts are also very helpful.
