Give Your Breasts a Lift… Naturally

Countless women experience sagging breasts, especially after having children and breastfeeding. Natural aging, weight loss and weight gain are a few factors that can cause the problem as well. If you would love a natural lift, you can try a few exercises to help get toned naturally. Do the exercises about 2 to 3 times a week if you can.

Dumbbell Bench Press

The dumbbell bench press has you lie flat on your back on a weight bench. Have a dumbbell in each hand and start with your arms stretched upward and extended all the way. Make sure your hands are "facing" the same direction as your feet; you should see the backs of your hands if you look up. Lower your arms until they sit close to your chest on either side. You can hold for a second or two and then raise your arms again for another repetition. Repeat this at least 10 times.

Pushup

The pushup is a great exercise for lifting your breasts. Make sure you get in proper pushup form with your feet close together and your palms slightly more than shoulder-width apart. Start with your arms straight and extended so you are in the upright position, and lower yourself until your nose is near the floor. Hold for a couple of seconds and do another 9 repetitions.

Dumbbell Fly

The dumbbell fly is an excellent option, as it targets a slightly different area of the breasts than the previous two exercises. You lie flat on your back on the weight bench just like the dumbbell bench press. Rather than having your arms extended straight upward, put a slight bend at your elbows. Turn each of your hands 90 degrees so that they are facing each other. Lower your arms outward to your sides, keeping your elbows bent. Then bring them back to the upright position so the weights almost touch each other. The move will resemble a flying motion like a bird. Repeat the exercise another 9 times.

Try to incorporate all of them into your routine so you can target all areas of your chest and truly lift your breasts. Do a set of 10 repetitions for each exercise before going to the next. If you're up for it, work towards doing 3 sets of each exercise, with a slight rest in between each set. So that's 10 repetitions, rest a minute, then do another 10, rest a minute, then do another 10. It shouldn't take too much time to be able to build up to that. If you can't get to 10 repetitions that's OK, try to stay in the range of 8-10, that's one way to know you're using the right amount of weight.

How much weight should you use? Determine how much weight you should use based on your muscles' ability to do 8-10 repetitions with that weight. You don't want to use a weight that is too light or too heavy. It might take a few times to find that "sweet spot" of a weight. Eventually, you should be able to do 8-10 repetitions with each weight, for 3 sets. Remember, the amount of weight you use will likely be different for each exercise becasue you are working different muscle groups, some stronger and some weaker.

After a few weeks of doing these exercises you should start to notice a difference in the way your chest looks and feels. Plus, the extra activity can make your whole body feel fantastic and improve your overall fitness. Look great, feel great --- and take on your day with style.
