Adolescence is such a difficult time of life. There are many things that we need to go through at this particular time and typically we are in a situation where there are many other people who are going through the same problems. Some of the most common problems that are experienced by those going through adolescence are acne, growth spurts and adjusting to life as an emerging adult. Unfortunately, for most children who are going through this stage in their life, the other children can tend to be quite cruel. If there is anything that can be picked on it certainly will be picked on.

Whenever a boy is going through adolescence there are a lot of changes that are taking place in his body. His glands are waking up to produce chemicals that will make him into the man that he will become. At times, however, for reasons that are unknown, it may be possible for those glands to get out of whack in one way or another. One of the worst things that can happen to a boy at this time in their life is gynecomastia, otherwise known as man boobs. This is a condition in which the adolescent body begins to produce additional estrogen and reduce the amount of testosterone that it is pumping out. Although the boy will continue to grow into manhood, he will grow breasts that looks somewhat like a woman during this time. After a couple of years, fortunately the breasts will subside on their own; but what can be done in the meantime?

One thing that most boys try whenever they are dealing with gynecomastia is to get a lot of exercise. They may also diet in an effort to lose the fat that is accumulating on their chest. Unfortunately, if you are dealing with the actual medical condition that causes man boobs in an adolescent then doing exercise will not do you any good at all. There are also many girls that do a lot of weight lifting and cardiovascular exercise during adolescence and it does not affect the growth of their breasts in any way. Because the boy is experiencing an actual hormonal problem then it would be necessary for him to treated in such a way and not to attempt to get rid of his breast as a result of increased exercise.

That isn’t to say that the boy should not exercise at all. In fact, increased exercise will help to reduce the size of the man boobs that they are experiencing. It does this by eliminating any additional fat that may be stored in that area alone with tightening the chest so that they are not as pronounced. The best part about the exercise but they do is that it will still be evident whenever they lose the man boobs that they are now experiencing. Whenever they go away, they will be in great shape and can get on with their life in a normal way.
