Did you know that men prefer perky breasts more than larger ones? Yes, in a recent study, it was found out that more than size, firmness is what matters to men .
And that makes sense. As no matter what your size, your breasts will always look and feel great as long as they do not sag.
Now sagging is a fairly common phenomenon. Especially among large-breasted women and is caused by a variety of reasons, ranging from age to the effects of gravity and smoking .
With that said, you do not have to go for surgery to get perky boobs. These simple, at-home, very doable exercises can help you get firmer and shapelier boobs. Just the kind you always wanted!
One of the easiest exercises you can do to firm up your breasts is the chest flex. To perform this exercise, first stand upright on your feet. Now take a mini exercising ball and hold it tight between both your hands with your elbows at level with your chest and squeeze. Repeat by flexing every few seconds. The exercise works pectoral muscles, which help support your chest. Do it for 40 minutes every day to get the desired results.
Apart from this exercise, there’s a particular series of exercises that you can do to get shapelier boobs. However, before you carry them out, you’ll need a couple of things:
A flat and spacious surface where you can be comfortable.
A pair of lightweight dumbbells. Don’t go for heavy ones if you’re a beginner.
Once you’re ready with the above, you will have to perform the following series
1. High-Low Ball Squeeze
How to do it: Press a small playground ball (or small Swiss ball) between your palms. (Don’t have either? Just press your palms together and proceed.) Take a wide stance with your toes pointed about 45 degrees outward. Bend your knees and elbows about 90 degrees, and bring the ball to your chest as you engage your pectoral muscles to squeeze your palms together. Extend your arms to bring the ball straight up overhead as you extend your knees to come up halfway, then squeeze the ball between your palms as you bend your knees back to a 90-degree angle. Pulse up as you bring the ball back to chest height to complete one rep. (You should be feeling a ~*bonus burn*~ in the butt and thighs.)
2. Bent-Arm Chest Openers
How to do it: Grab one dumbbell in each hand and take a wide stance with your toes pointed about 45 degrees outward. Bend your knees and elbows about 90 degrees, and bring the weights out to your sides with palms facing forward, wrists stacked over elbows. From this position, engage your chest muscles to squeeze the arms together in front of the body. Release with control to complete one rep, staying low the entire time to tap into your butt and thighs.
3. Single-Arm Chest Fly
How to do it: Sit on a mat with your legs outstretched, toes pointed, and a playground ball or rolled-up mat behind your lower back for support. Grab one dumbbell in each hand and extend your hands in front of you at shoulder-height with your palms facing up. Lean back about 45 degrees. From this position, open your right arm to the right side, twisting from the waist until the weights are as far apart as possible. Engage your chest muscles as you bring the weight back to starting position to complete one rep. Continue for 30 seconds, then switch sides, this time opening to the left.
4. Hands Plank Step-Ins
How to do it: Get into plank position with your shoulders stacked over your wrists, and your body in a straight line between the top of your head and your toes. From this position, step your right foot toward your right hand. Step your left foot toward your left hand. (If you’re all like, “Why am I moving my feet to work my chest?” it’s because this shifts your weight forward, isolating the muscles that support your breasts. Just try it.) Step your right foot back. Step your left foot back. That’s one rep.
5. Hands Plank Reaches
How to do it: Get into plank position with your shoulders stacked over your wrists and your body in a straight line between the top of your head and your toes. From this position, lift your right hand and extend it straight out in front of you. Put your right hand back on the floor and extend your left hand out in front of you. Return to plank position to complete one rep. Continue to alternate sides. Keep your hips square to the ground for a bonus burn in your core.
