Exercises to Firm and Lift the Breasts

Are your breasts not as perky as they were in your younger years? Sagging breasts are a problem that pretty much all women will eventually face. The effects of gravity, breast feeding and loss of elasticity are just a few of the reasons why the breasts start to head further south as you grow older.

If your breasts are starting to sag and you’re feeling just as low as they are, you are probably wondering if there is a way that you can perk them back up.

While you can’t turn back the hands of time, you can develop the muscles that lie under your breasts in order to make them look plumper and perkier, just like they did in your formative years.

If you’re ready to make your chest look younger than it actually is, give these breast boosting exercises a try.

The Dumbbell Bench Press

You can easily build up the muscles underneath your breasts by doing the dumbbell bench press. In order to do this work out, all you need to do is lie on a bench or on the ground face up, with a dumbbell (try 2 pound dumbbells at first and work your way up to heavier weights) in each hand.

When you’re ready, lift your arms up above your head and then lower them down until they are near the sides of your chest. Return to the starting position. Do this for a total of 10 reps.

The Pushup

Another great exercise to enhance the look of your breasts and make them look more youthful is the traditional pushup. You know; the type that you did in high school gym class and dreaded. They’re simple, straightforward and can do wonders for your sagging chest.

Just in case you forgot how to do a traditional pushup, all you have to do is lie on the ground, face down, with your hands flat on the floor near your shoulders.

Extend your legs and bend your toes. Push yourself up on your hands, and then lower yourself back down to the ground. Do 3 sets of 10 reps with as little rest in between each set and you’ll see a big difference in your chest (and your core) over the course of a few weeks.

Stair Pushups

Another great exercise to build the chest muscles and create the appearance of perkier breasts is the stair pushup. This exercise is done very similarly to the traditional pushup, only instead of laying flat on the ground, you rest your hands on a step of a staircase. Lift yourself from the step and lower yourself into the step. Do a total of 3 sets, 10 reps in each set, with as little rest as possible.

Overhead Dumbbell Press

For this exercise, stand up and position your feet so that they are under your hips. With a dumbbell in each hand, hold your arms at your sides. Lift your arms up above your head and lower them back down to your sides. Do 3 sets of 10 reps with as little rest as possible.

Give these exercises a try for a few weeks and you will definitely start to see a noticeable difference in the positioning of your sagging breasts.
