Many women find that, over time, their breasts begin to droop. Whether as a result of weight loss or pregnancy, it is not uncommon to find that the ligaments supporting the breast tissue have gone slack and the skin elasticity is not what it used to be. Given the high priority that many of us place on having firm and perky breasts, this can certainly be distressing. Fortunately, there are a number of exercises that you can do to do help combat the effects of gravity.
This exercise can be done on a bench or while lying back on a medicine ball. In either case, both feet should be firmly planted on the floor. Bring the arms overhead and slowly lower the hands down so they’re in line with your chest. Then lengthen the arms back overhead. Keep the core engaged during this process. That is one rep. Do 10 reps. Feel free to add weights for a more challenging exercise.
Standing in front of a bench, place your hands on the edge of the bench, fingers facing towards your body. Walk the feet out so that the legs are long and only the heels are on the floor. Practice lengthening the arms to lift the body up and bending the arms to lower the body closer to the floor. Repeat 10 times.
Lying Chest Fly
Lay down and bend the knees at a 90-degree angle, so the shins are parallel to the floor. Press the low back into the ground and lengthen the arms overhead, palms facing each other. Keep the core engaged and open the arms wide, bending the elbows and hovering them about 2 inches above the floor. Bring the arms back overhead. That’s one rep. Repeat 10 times. Feel free to add weights for a more challenging exercise.
