When it comes to increasing the size of your breasts, this can only be accomplished by gaining weight or breast augmentation surgery. However, there are ways that you can make them appear bigger while also improving their shape and reducing the appearance of droopy sagging breasts. Breast exercises, if done correctly and consistently can do just that. Realistically, you won’t experience the type of results you would if you had surgery, but by doing breast exercises you’ll definitely notice a difference in how your breasts look and feel.
Workouts that can Effect Breast Size and Shape
Focusing on developing the muscles underneath the breasts by doing breast exercises, can enhance the look of your breasts, making them appear bigger and firmer. This type of workout won’t bump you up a cup size, but training your chest muscles can definitely provide your breasts with some much needed oomph.
Working the chest muscles from a number of angles using enough weight will ensure that there is plenty of stimulus to develop the chest muscles while also increasing strength. The result? Beautifully shaped breasts.
The key to this workout is to choose weights that are heavy enough. When you’re lifting the weights it should feel like you can do about three more reps at the end of a set. Challenging your muscles by using heavier weights is important for muscle growth.
Working out with kettlebells can make your cardio workout more challenging and can help to burn calories are a faster rate. There are several kettlebell cardio workout videos to choose from. Switch up your workouts using this type of weight lifting technique for more rapid weight loss and muscle gain.
The Breast Workout
To do these exercises you’ll need some dumbbells and a weight bench.
For the first breast exercise, use a weight bench and lie on your back, with your arms straight and a dumbbell in each hand. Lower the weights until they are close to the sides of your chest. Press the weight back up, into the starting position. This counts as one rep. Do a total of twelve reps for two to three sets.
The next exercise is a variation of the standard pushup. To do this type of pushup, simply place your palms slightly wider than your shoulders. This exercise will really get your chest muscles burning, using only your body weight. Do a total of ten reps for each set, and try to do three to four sets.
For this next exercise you’ll need to use your weight bench again. Set your bench to a low incline, placing your feet flat on the ground. Use your dumbbells, holding them above your shoulders, keeping the arms straight. Lower the weights slowly down to the sides of your chest. Rest for one count, then slowly raise your arms back to the starting position. Do twelve reps for a total of three sets.
Dumbbell flies are a fun and effective exercise that really puts your chest muscles to the test. To do, use your weight bench and lie on your back, keeping your feet flat on the ground. Use your dumbbells, keeping them above your shoulders with the elbows bent slightly. Make sure the elbows remain slightly bent and lower the dumbbells until the elbows are even with your chest. Keeping the elbows bent, press the dumbbells back up. Do twelve reps for two to three sets.
Be prepared to have a sore chest the next morning. Try to do these exercises three to four times a week for best results. Rest is also very important after a workout and promotes muscle recovery while also reducing your chances of injury. Never work your chest two days in a row. Try to space these workouts with two day in between each workout session.
Why Losing Weight Can Help
If you’re significantly overweight, the odds are that once you lose weight, your breasts will become smaller and they may even sag. This is especially true for women who are more than fifty pounds overweight. But losing weight doesn’t have to mean smaller sagging breasts, especially if you perform certain exercises that are designed to give your breasts a natural lift. In fact, even if your breast do become smaller as you lose weight, the weight loss in other areas of the body, especially in the waistline, can actually make your breasts look firmer and larger.
Cardio is one of the best types of workouts you can do that can tone the muscles and give your body the overhaul it needs to look stronger, firmer and younger. Cardio exercises can include dancing, running, jogging, HIIT routines or any other type of activity that gets your heart racing and the blood flowing. Shoot for an exercise routine that’s fun and challenging. Have a goal of working out at least three times a week for forty-five minutes or longer.
Working out doesn’t have to be a chore and it won’t be if you focus on turning some of the activities you love into a fat burning workout. Many women also enjoy weight lifting because it burns calories faster than cardio, tones muscles and adds more muscle mass. An increase in muscle mass in your chest and abs can make breasts look bigger while naturally lifting them and making them firmer. Exercises that focus on the core are a must for women who want a tighter, firmer body.
Diet Always Matters
Whether you want to lose weight, tone your abs or make your breasts naturally larger or firmer, what you eat can have a major impact on how you look and feel. Working out hard during the week but eating a diet that mainly consists of processed foods can kind of defeat the purpose of working out if your goal is to tone up and lose weight.
Shoot for foods such as whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies and lean proteins. Avoid processed foods, foods that are high in sugar and empty calories and starchy foods. Realistically, you should follow a clean eating diet approximately eighty percent of the time. A few cheat meals a week won’t hinder your progress and can actually prevent you from making poor food choices throughout the week.
