Believe it or not the best exercise to lose chest fat is not about working out the muscles in your chest (bench presses, push-ups, dumbell flys etcetera). This is a huge misconception and also happens to be the main reason why people have such a hard time losing chest fat. Exercising the muscles beneath your chest fat does NOT help to burn fat in that area!
Allow me to explain myself before I tell you about the kind of exercise that WILL finally eliminate that excess chest fat and give you a flat chest. If you were to adopt a good diet today and start doing lots of aerobic exercise (i.e. swimming, running, cycling etc), then you'll no doubt start to lose some body fat.
Which part of your body will you lose body fat from first?
Well to an extent that's determined by your genes and unfortunately there's nothing you can do about that.
If you're like most others who are having a hard time losing chest fat, then your genes are likely programmed to remove fat from your chest AFTER you've lost fat everywhere else on your body. Not only that, but if you were to start gaining weight again, it would happen in the same order – so your chest would get fat LAST.
Think about it for a second…
If you're obsessed about losing only chest fat, you could be exercising for weeks and see NO change whatsoever! Whereas in actual fact you're losing LOTS of fat from your bum, thighs, arms, face, belly and back – you just don't notice it because you're so focussed on your chest!
Also, when you're skinny and you start gaining weight, you'll first gain weight on your bum, thighs, arms, back etc. But because you're only worried about your chest and belly fat, you wont even notice that you're getting fat! Then when your chest and belly blow up, you start exercising and you can't get rid of them – because you have to lose that arse fat first!
“So Why Don't Push-Ups/Bench Presses Work?”
These exercises don't do a good job in getting rid of chest fat because they only work one muscle group – your pectorals. If you really give it your all and build up those chest muscles, you'll only be burning a few calories and only be losing a few pounds of fat at best – from your bum, thighs or where your genes are programmed to lose fat from first.
So the best exercise to lose chest fat is one that burns as many calories as possible to burn as many pounds of general body fat as possible. It involves an exercise that gets your body working in overdrive by using almost all of the muscle groups in your body.
This exercise will follow your genetically predetermined sequence of weight-loss, and burn fat in all those other areas before resorting to getting rid of that chest fat. Hence it's crucial that you don't gauge your success by looking at your chest. The size of your chest will remain unchanged for some time, while you lose heaps of body fat all over the rest of your body.
And when finally your body decides to get rid of that chest fat, it'll disappear so quickly you wont even know it was there!
The best exercise to lose chest fat involves aerobic workouts such as cycling, swimming and running, which include all of your muscle groups and involve your heart and lungs.
