As we age, it is very natural for the boobs to lose their perky form. This can occur when factors such as hormonal changes, breast feeding, genetic predisposition and sudden weight loss make an adverse effect on chest muscles. Luckily, there are some exercises that can reverse this condition when performed regularly. If you are ready, let’s take a look the exercises.
1. Isometric chest exercises
Isometric exercises don’t require any equipment. All you need is the strength of your body to work the muscles without any visible movement. Despite their simple look, they are very effective at shaping your breasts.
Stand straight with your feet-shoulder apart. Join hands in front of your chest. Press your hands against each other. Wait for 10 seconds. Keep your chest muscles tight. Then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat 10 times.
Our second exercise looks similar to the first one but here we hold our hands in a crossed position. Place your hands over your shoulders and push your elbows inwards at the same time. Wait for 20 seconds in this position and rest for 10 seconds. Repeat 5 times.
2. Chest exercises with a towel
We will be using a hand towel for this exercise. We hold the towel from the sides and stretch it sideways. Keeping tension in the chest muscles may help us get perkier breasts.
In the first exercise, raise the towel slowly above your head. Lower the towel slowly over your back. Try not to strain your shoulders too much. Keep raising and lowering the towel this way. In the meantime pull the towel to sides to keep the tension in your arms. Repeat 10 times.
In the second towel exercise, place the towel vertically behind your back. Now lift the towel up and down while keeping the posture steady. Do the exercise without straining your arm muscles too much. Repeat 10 times.
3. Chest exercises on the floor
Next, we have exercises that work the chest muscles. These exercises rely on our body weight while using arm muscles.
The first exercise is an easier version of the push up, but here we place our weight over the knees. Assume the push up position and place your knees on the floor. You can use a pillow or towel to prevent your knees from hurting. Keep your feet crossed and up in the air. Do 10 push-ups in this position. Then rest for 30 seconds before doing the next exercise.
Our second exercise is known as the cobra pose. Lie down flat on your stomach with your feet slightly apart. Place your palms under your shoulders. Push your body up and bend backwards from your hips. Look up, take a deep breath and return to the initial position. Make 15 repetitions and finish the exercise.
Our third and last exercise is the pilates swimming. Lay down flat on your stomach. Extend your arms over your head with your palms facing down. Lift up your right arm and left leg simultaneously and lower them. Now, raise and lower the opposite side. Lift up your left arm and right leg together and lower them. Make 20 repetitions.
As with all exercises, remember to march in place for about 5 minutes to get warmed up before doing any kind of exercise. Try to do these exercises regularly 3 times a week for 2 months to make your chest muscles tighter. You’ll definitely see the difference. We advise you do these exercises twice a week to keep your breasts perky for all times.
