The best bet for bringing about a sizeable growth in breast tissue is undoubtedly breast firming exercise. If you know the right exercises, then they can cause a permanent growth in your bust. Moreover you will not be invading your body with implants or doubtful pills, creams, lotions and sprays to increase your breasts.
How Do Breast Firm Exercises Work?
Human female breasts are mostly made up of adipose tissue, which is nothing but a fatty tissue. These tissues are covered by the skin and held in place by ligaments. The breast is terminated by a nipple surrounded by the areola.
Since the breast is made up simply of tissue, the exercises cannot actually increase the bulk of the tissue. Tissue is not muscle, and hence, no improvement can be brought about in it by exercise. Instead of targeting the adipose tissue of the breast itself, the breast firming exercises try to improve the tone of the pectoral muscles, which are the chest muscles lying above the rib cage and below the adipose tissue of the breasts. Hence, breast firming exercises are in fact chest expansion exercises.
Effective Breast Firm Exercises
The following chest expansion exercises are found effective in given women a healthier and better bust:-
1. Pectoral Push Ups
Lay on your stomach on the ground. Bend your hands so that your forearms and elbows touch the ground. Now start doing conventional push ups, but with the only difference that your arms do not change from their position. In this manner, you will get exercise for only the chest and the spring action will be spared from benefiting your arms. Repeat this for about 10 to 12 times per day.
2. Inverted Push Ups
This is much like normal push ups, but the only difference is that this is performed standing with the wall as the fulcrum instead of the floor. Stand a little distance away from a rigid wall and place your palms on the wall. Then lower yourself on the wall and pull back. Repeat this for about 10 to 12 times per day.
3. Pectoral Press
This is a very simple exercise, but it needs weights of about 5 pounds for both of your hands. Lie flat on your back holding the weights. In the starting position, hold your arms outstretched, so that the weights are as far away from your body as possible. Then slowly raise your arms with the weights in them and bring them vertically closer to each other. When they touch each other, pull back again and return to the normal position. While doing this, you will actually feel the pressure building on the sides of your breasts. Repeat it for 10 to 12 times for better results.
4. Butterfly Press
This requires a sturdy flat bottomed chair (not the comfortably curved ones) and a pair of weights of about 5 pounds each. Sit on the chair with a straight back, holding the weights in your hands. In the starting position, your hands should droop down with the weights. Then raise your arms gradually from the sides and bring them up to the shoulder level. Hold them for a couple of seconds in this position, and then take them down again. Repeat this exercise 10 to 12 times.
Breast Firmness Yogic Asanas
Yoga has a treasury of asanas that work especially on the pectoral muscles. Some of these asanas are described below:-
1. Utthita Trikonasana
Stand with your feet placed well apart, so that the weight of the body is spread equally on both the feet. Raise your arms to the level of the shoulder. Hold yourself in this pose till you are stable. Then slowly lower the right palm, keeping the line of the outstretched hands maintained, so that it touches the right leg. When you achieve this, your left hand must be pointing skywards. Keep this position for 30 seconds, then repeat with the left palm.
Stand in the Tadasana pose. Then slowly bend yourself forwards and bring your palms to the ground. If you are flexible enough, you will be able to do this; or else let the palms go as much towards the ground as possible. Keep this forward bent position for some time and then release yourself.
Lie flat on your back. Keep the feet firmly on the ground. Bring your arms closer so that the elbows come nearer to the body. Then, slowly try to arch your back upwards from the ground. Keep yourself in the raised position for about 10 seconds and then lower yourself again. Repeat for about 10 times. Be warned that this is a very difficult asana and must not be attempted by beginners.
There are several more asanas. In fact, any asana that mentions chest improvement will indirectly work for breast firmness as well. You can take your pick, but if you are not confident, then it is best to perform these exercises under the guidance of a trained supervisor.
