Here’s the reality. You woke up, looked in the mirror one day, and said to yourself, “Gee, my chest is looking awfully soft and flabby. I’d better do something about it.” That’s great! You had an epiphany. The next step is that you joined a gym, and now you’re poised to work off your moobs like a sharpshooter.
But you sort of want to disguise them to ward off onlookers who might make fun of you. That’s cool, because there are ways to disguise them that can make your time at the gym a lot more enjoyable.
You may not have thought about this before, but you can do a pretty good job of hiding your moobs by the way you hold your body in the gym. Naturally, if your arms are pulled back and you puff your chest out, you’ll be advertising for the whole world to see. But if you keep your head down and your arms forward, you can hide your moobs.
Yes, it’s true: This is not good mechanics and it’s definitely not good for your posture. But it’s short term and you’ll only be doing it at certain times when you’re in the gym. Because of this, you’re best served by incorporating some back and arm extension drills into your training, too.
You can do these from the comfort of your own home, so you won’t even have to worry about disguising yourself. And speaking of back extensions, yoga is a good option in this department.
Perhaps the easiest way to hide your moobs is through the medium of clothing. It doesn’t take much to throw on a baggy shirt and waltz into the weight room. No one is going to detect a thing because there won’t be a skin-tight garment draped across the front of your upper body.
You can even safeguard yourself one step further by wearing an A-shirt, also known as a “wife-beater,” under your baggy shirt. Think of it as the equivalent of a man bra.
In the event that you do any type of exercise that causes you to move around forcefully, like jumping rope, the undershirt will keep things in place a bit more. In other words, your moobs will be more secure and won’t bounce up and down as much.
Keep to yourself
Oftentimes, being a loner is a bad thing. You can become depressed, alienated, and shut out from society. But in your case it’s short term and you’re trying to disguise your moobs. So it might be a good idea to keep to yourself at the gym. Here’s how to do it.
Instead of walking into the weight room at the busiest time of day, go to the gym during off hours. The fewer people who are there, the easier it’ll be to keep to yourself. Then you won’t have to stress so much about masking your moobs.
Also, work out in an area that’s less populated – especially if there’s a lot of people there. Grab some dumbbells, a stability ball, and resistance bands, and move to a quiet corner of the gym. Face a wall or a corner and proceed to mind your own business and do your workout to tighten your chest.
No one will bat an eyelid or know you’re there, and you can train with the freedom of not being judged, ridiculed, or seen.
It’s even better if you can find a fitness classroom that’s not being used. You can slip right in there undetected like Inspector Clouseau and no one will have a clue.
As you can see, there are many ways to hide your moobs. But in all seriousness, never take anyone’s words to heart. They’re just words and it’s only your interpretation of them that can hurt you. Be proud of who you are, no matter what your chest looks like!
