Caring for Your Bust
To us women, breasts are more than just mammary glands providing food source to our babies. Our breasts are our pride and joy. We flaunt them and adorn them with the sexy bras to make them more appealing to the opposite sex. More than anything, our breasts symbolise our femininity. Women all over the world take pride in their breasts in so many ways, making them larger, more luscious or pushing them up with ‘Miracle’ bras or even by going under the knife. To show off a healthy cleavage is almost like a soldier showing off his war medals. So let’s treat our breasts right by keeping them healthy and in good stead.
Easy bust exercises for every woman
Stay perky and firm
Can we really protect our breasts from the effects of gravity, age and childbirth? Being blessed with good genes will help but unfortunately, that’s not the case for everyone. Most of us have to do our part to fight the droop. Wearing the right bras and doing daily bust exercises will help keep our assets in shape for as long as possible.
Here are 5 easy yet effective exercises that can be done anywhere – in the living room, bedroom or even on a mat on the floor. Skip the expensive gym equipment and make full use of everyday things from your kitchen like canned food and large bottles of mineral water.
The Chest Fly
You will need two light dumb bells or cans of beans or large bottles of water, whichever is available to you at the time.
- Lie on your back on a bench or across the corner of your bed with your feet firmly on the floor.
- Hold a dumb-bell or whatever you are using as weight in each hand with palms facing up. Stretch your arms out fully to your sides and pull your tummy in at the same time.
- Slowly lift both arms up toward the ceiling so that yours hands come together. Breathe in as you raise your arms and breathe out as you lower them to the starting position. Repeat 10-12 times.
This simple exercise tightens the chest and gently stretches out your back, especially if you do it in the morning. It also helps with your posture. Again, you’ll need two light dumb bells or cans of beans or large bottles of water.
- Lie on a bench or the corner of the bed with your feet firmly on the floor.
- Use both hands to hold one weight and raise it over your head.
- Bring the weight back over your head towards the ceiling and inhale while pulling your tummy in at the same time.
- Keep your back straight and do not allow it to arch. Stretch out your arms as much as you can. Feel the pull in your chest, shoulders and upper arms.
- Repeat 10-12 times.
This exercise can be done anywhere. Whether you are sitting at your desk or in your car waiting at the traffic lights, you can do this one without looking too strange.
- Hold one arm out in front of you at a ninety degree angle to your body.
- Use your other hand to hold your extended arm by the forearm and gently squeeze the extended arm into your chest and hold for a few seconds. Feel the side of the breast (pectoral) muscle squeezing.
- Repeat 10 times on each side.
This one is even easier and much more discreet. You can even do it in boring meetings and no one will ever notice.
- Gently squeeze both arms into the sides of the breasts while inhaling. Feel the sides of the pectoral muscles contract gently.
- Hold for a few seconds then release and exhale. Repeat as often as you want throughout the day.
Probably the most well-known ‘I must, I must, I must increase my bust’ routine, the prayer pose is another easy yet effective exercise you can do anywhere.
- Stand or sit with your back erect. Hold your palms against each other at chest level.
- Inhale and press both palms forcefully against each other till you feel pressure in the pectoral muscles. Count till twenty and then exhale. Repeat sets of three.
