Note: I'm just trying to get in shape over the summer while I'm away from school so I'm an amateur when it comes to physical fitness and I might not know what I'm talking about.
As of right now I'm just working out at home with out using any weights and I've been trying to do some pecs exercises (specifically to trim down chest fat, man boobs if you will). I found a couple pages online stating that pushups (regular style) are one of the best exercises you can do without weights so that's what I've been doing. The only problem is that so far I haven't noticed much of a change. Now I know building muscle takes time but the pushups in particular raise concern because I've notice significant changes in the other areas of my body that I've been working out (with other exercises) for just as long. Before coming to stack exchange to discuss this I talked to a friend of mine about the situation. I asked him if I was doing anything wrong or if there's a specific exercise to burn chest fat. Now I'm not sure how correct his response is but he told me something along the lines of,
Regular pushups will build your upper pec. Whereas I need something that works my lower pec in order to burn chest fat.
He didn't know of any lower pec exercises that could be done without weights off the top of his head so I ended up googling it. This is where my problem lies, I found a number of different webpages all saying a number of different things.
Some examples of things that were suggested are:
Elevated push ups
Clapping push ups
Ultimately my question is:
What is the best exercise to burn chest fat (without the use of weights)?
Or are the above examples acceptable?
