There may not be any magical remedies for impacting the size of your breasts but you can make them appear bigger, firmer and perkier with these simple workouts.
The muscles directly underneath your breast are called pectorals and it’s these babies you want to target. Saggy boobs are for Nanas, so join in on the fight against gravity and pick your jugs up off the floor!
1: The modified push-up
Lie on your stomach and bend you knees. Bend your elbows and place the palms of your hands out from the side of your shoulders. Straighten your arms so that your body is balanced on your palms, but also keep weight on the knees. Tuck in your chin so your forehead faces the floor and tighten your abdominals. Bend your body down but only until your upper arm is parallel to the floor. Repeat 8-15 times, a few times a week.
2: Resistance bands
Resistance bands add variation when exercising the chest area. You’re using your own body to provide resistance and can control the level by moving closer or further away from the centre of the band. Just wrap the band around something stable behind you and hold a handle in each hand. Move your arms out to the side, elbows bent and palms facing down. Squeeze your chest and press your arms back out in front of you, keeping the band stable. Repeat 1-3 sets of 8-16 reps.
3: Tin can press
Lie on a stability ball (or the floor if you don’t have one) with your feet flat on the ground and a can or dumbbell in each hand. Lift the weight directly above your shoulders, palms facing away. Pull your abdominals in and tilt your chin towards your chest. Lower the weight down until your elbows lightly touch the floor then repeat 15 times, 2 reps.
The perfect excuse to head down the beach, swimming is also great for exercising ‘breast muscles’. Swimming works your entire torso, helping your breast tissue to sit better and look perkier. Swimming also works your whole body, improving cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength, endurance, posture, and flexibility all at the same time. Plus that water resistance makes for a great workout!
Stand a foot away from a wall (or more to intensify). Place hands on the wall about 2 feet apart at shoulder height with fingers pointing upwards and your feet also standing about a metre apart. Lift your heels and bend your elbows at to a right angle keeping the body rigid in the core area.
