Hi, I’ve had what I’d call ‘mild’ gyno (puffy nipples) since I was about 13.
Around that time, I noticed I started to store more fat than when I was a child. I always put this down to puberty and adults holding more fat than kids but I’ve been thinking about it and around the same time, I noticed that I have had a tendency to hold fat in places you’d associate with women, rather than men, such as my buttocks and upper thighs.
In fact, my mates joke about the size of my ass - unfortunately it’s not all muscle from squats!
I had my test levels checked when I was still at uni (about 9 year ago) and was told that it was “well within” the normal range but I was thinking is my ‘feminine’ fat storage likely to be linked to gyno/ low test levels?
I know that a couple of contributing factors with regard to my buttocks, is that I am a bit overweight (I have a 36 inch waist) and I seem to have problems with my glutes contracting when I walk, for example. I do squats and deadlifts but that doesn’t seem to have fixed the problem.
Any advice would be appreciated.
