Episode 4: Bust Lifting Exercises
Welcome to our Dreamline Podcast where we talk about bust wellness and concerns affecting ladies. In this episode, we’ll be sharing 5 simple exercises you can do at home to help lift your bust.
First and foremost, it's important to understand that the bust is mostly composed of fat rather than muscle, so you can’t make breast tissue firmer by exercising. You can, however, exercise your chest muscles. This can help give the appearance of a slightly fuller and bigger bust. It can also help slow down the sagging that comes with age. That being said, here are some exercises you can try at home.
Number 1: Push-Up
Push-ups are a classic exercise that can help strengthen your chest and the connective tissue under your bust. Start by getting into a push-up position with your hands shoulder-width apart or slightly wider. You can do this with your legs straight or with your knees on the floor. Perform a push-up by bending at the elbows until your chest brushes the floor, then push back up to the starting position. If you're unable to do floor push-ups, you can start with wall push-ups instead.
Number 2: Superman
This exercise involves lying flat on your stomach and lifting your arms and legs up toward the ceiling as high as possible. Keep your head down and look at the floor to prevent straining your neck. Hold for a count of one before lowering your arms and legs, then repeat.
Number 3: Chest Press
For this exercise, you'll need a set of dumbbells. Lie down on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Hold a dumbbell in each hand with your elbows and upper arms flat on the ground and your forearms vertical. Push the dumbbells up towards the ceiling until your arms are fully extended. Slowly lower them back down until your elbows and upper arms are on the floor again, then repeat.
Number 4: Squeeze Press
This exercise involves squeezing a weight between your hands to actively engage your chest muscles. Clasp a dumbbell between your hands and hold it up by your chest, then squeeze it as hard as you can. Next, press the dumbbell out in front of you by straightening your elbows, but don't stop squeezing to keep your chest activated. Bring the weight back to your chest and repeat.
Number 5: Chest Fly
For this exercise, imagine you’re hugging a large tree. Lie down on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Grab the dumbbells and bring them up above your chest with your arms fully extended straight and your palms facing each other. Slowly lower the dumbbells out to your sides while maintaining a very slight bend at the elbow until they're level with your shoulders. Then, slowly bring the dumbbells back together over your chest in the same arc motion, then repeat.
It's important to keep in mind that changes in the appearance of your bust can be influenced by other factors such as age, weight fluctuations, and genetics. If nothing else, performing various chest exercises helps improve upper body strength, muscle tone and posture as well.
