thank you. growth & distribution of body hair in male person depends upon the hormone testosterone.
have you used to take testosterone drug?
use of testosterone drug or excessive production of this hormone in the body may create this problem.
testosterone secreting tumor is an example. thorough physical check up is needed to exclude the cause.
gym-work is not a cause.
you may consult a endocrinologist.
