    Just have to cut you body fat % in general. You cant spot reduce. Do some cardio, lift weights and eat right and it will all come together!

    yes its just a joke, You cant really taget fat loss but as your bodyfat drops you will notice your chest firming up. There is no targeting fatty areas. I dont know why only part of my post came up, sorry. Good kuck bro.

    Essentially, you can really only do one before the other. "Toning", or gaining muscle, really requires a good solid routine and a good diet with an excess of calories (unless you know your body really well). So if gaining muscle, you're unlikely to be losing fat so the man boobs have to stay a while.

    Or you can diet to lose the fat with a calorie deficit and eventually the man boobs will go (unless you have gyno, but this is probably unlikely). However, you won't really be able to gain much muscle when in deficit.

    This is why many on here advocate a bulking and cutting diet. I too had these man boobs and after years of trying to add muscle and lose the fat at the same diet, gave the bulking and cutting idea a go and found much success.

    If you post your routine here, your diet in the diet section and do a little searching in the routines and diet section, I'm sure you'll find ALL the answers you need. There is a wealth of information to be found.

    Id steer clear of the pec deck. You will receive more mass growth from benches IMO. This will help in filling out the chest area and when you start cutting, your 'man boobs', like mine, will become history.
