I know ladies who, like me, are a little more... well, endowed than some. It is a constant struggle to not feel like my bra buddies are hanging to the floor. On the flip side of that, I have a few girlfriends who have always wanted to have a little extra ‘oomf’ on top.
Where do we get better boobs without the use of a pushup bra or padding?
Here are three EASY exercises to do at home or the gym that will give that little extra perk you are looking for!
And, no, I'm not talking about the type of bra. Good ol’ fashioned military push-ups are one of the best ways to lift your ta-tas! Not only is it working your pecs, its also engaging your shoulder, back and core muscles! Remember to keep your hands shoulder-width apart on the floor, your spine straight and keep your stomach tensed to get the most out of this exercise!
2. Dumbbell Fly
You can do this exercise three ways - face-up on a bench, on the floor, or lying on a stability ball. Hold a pair of dumbbells above your chest with a slight bend in your elbows. Keeping your elbows bent, lower the weights until your elbows are in line with your chest. Keep the same bend as you move your arms back up. And repeat. A dumbbell fly is actually an isolated movement that moves only one joint to work your muscles! It’s like a 2-for-1 special!
3. Tricep Dips
Sit on a chair or a bench and place your hands at the sides of your seat, facing forward. Keep your hands where they are and lift yourself off of the seat. Slowly lower yourself towards the floor by bending your elbows, but do not actually touch the floor with your bottom. Lift yourself back up to the starting position, and then repeat. While this exercise is focused on your triceps, it is great for your pecks as well! It will have your arms and chest looking toned and lean, just in time for bikini season!
- Make workouts like the ones above a part of your regular routine, it can make a huge difference!
- Wear a good sports bra! Especially during high-impact activities.
- Drink lots of water and eat healthy! Keeping connective tissue hydrated and well nourished can help prevent sagging later on!
