where your body stores fat is more or less genetic.
how you lose that fat has nothing to do with targeted workouts.
you lose body fat by burning it via aerobic activity and/or caloric deficits.
you can make body areas with more fat look better by building muscle under the fat, but like... doing ab crunches doesnt burn much belly fat, it just develops ab muscles.
you burn manboobs the same way you burn a flabby ass or a spare tire- with aerobic activities that make you breathe hard* and make your heart beat fast: running, cycling, rowing, eliptical, hiking, etc....
your genes will decide which fat stores to burn first, but it doesnt matter which form or aerobic activity you do for fat burning.
*breathing hard is actually the best sign that youre burning fat, as aerobic metabolism essentially uses the oxygen you breathe to burn fat for fuel for aerobic activity.
