Suggest some exercise to lose fat on chest?

Suggest  some  exercise  to lose  fat  on chest?

Burn fat: The body does not selectively lose fat. How and where you store fat is genetically determined. You can reduce total body fat and the chest is one of the first places to lose fat. You can also increase muscle mass with resistance or weight training. My advice would be to put on some muscle first, then lower total calories to below 2000 per day along with exercise. It should take about 3-6 months. ...Read more

How does exercise burn fat and build muscle?

How does exercise burn fat and build muscle?

Repetitive use: Repetition is how we replace fat with muscle. Take running. The act of lifting your leg (which is heavy), rotating your pelvis to swing your leg to place it in front of you, and repeating with the opposite leg is a lot of work. Do this 5000 times.
