As we age, gravity continues to push down on our bodies making everything, even “the girls” point more towards earth. If you find that the ta-ta’s just are not looking as perky as they used to be, you don’t need to resort to push-up bras, corsets, or padded bras. You can develop the muscles under the breasts to help support your girls and hold them up.

Breasts are made up of various glands, fat, and connective tissue, and they can begin to droop for a wide variety of reasons such as aging, rapid weight loss, and pregnancy. For many women, these changes in their body can begin to feel embarrassing, making them feel self-conscious about wearing certain types of clothing.

Although we can’t turn back the clock, and the following exercises won’t change you from an A to a C cup, they can definitely add some extra va va voom to your chest.

Most of these exercises involve weights, a bench, and a yoga ball. Be sure you choose weights that are slightly challenging so that you increase muscle strength, but not so heavy that you become sore and discouraged. Find weights that make you feel as if you could do perhaps two more reps after each set, but no more than that. Challenge yourself and increase the weights by one pound about every two or three weeks. Doing the following exercises will definitely make a difference you can see and feel in about 4 weeks’ time if you do these exercises two or three times per week.

Are you ready to go? Let’s give the girls a hand, then.


1.  Dumbbell Flyaways

Lie on your back on the floor with your knees bent comfortably. To begin, hold your weights in each hand, the back of your arms on the floor, your hands facing towards the ceiling, almost as if you were in a crucifix position. Raise your hands up towards the ceiling and touch the weights lengthwise, as if you were using them to clap. The weights should be centered over your chest. Return to the start position. Do 10 repetitions and work towards doing 3 sets with a 30 second recovery period between sets.
