Every woman would like perky, firm breasts. Because breasts are, essentially, just pockets of fat, there is no way to make them larger, short of gaining weight. As years go by, breasts lose some of their elasticity and start to sag. The pectoral muscles directly under the breasts are responsible for some of the perkiness of breasts. Fortunately, there are exercises that you can do to help your breasts retain some of their elasticity and firmness.
Lie on your back with your feet flat on the ground and your knees bent. Stretch your arms straight out on both sides. Holding a 3- to 5-lb. weight in each hand, lift your arms straight up, and touch the weights together. Lower your arms back to the ground. Repeat three to five time or until tired.
There are several Yoga poses that focus entirely on the breast and chest area. One of these poses, the Cobra, strengthens the pectoral muscles. Perform this pose lying flat on your stomach, with your arms bent and hands flat on the floor at your shoulders. With your legs and feet remaining on the floor, push the top half of your body up with your arms. Stretch as far as you can comfortably. Lift your head to the sky, and point your chin up. Hold for three seconds, and slowly lower back to the floor. Repeat three to five times.
Lie on your stomach as though you are about to do a push-up. Instead of stretching your legs out and balancing on your toes, bend at your knees, and cross your ankles. Place your hands next to your shoulders, and push the top half of your body up. Slowly lower yourself back to the ground. Repeat until tired.
Touch your palms together with your elbows pointing out away from your body. Stand with a straight back and contracted stomach muscles. Press your palms together with increasing force. Inhale to the count of three as you are pressing. Slowly exhale while decreasing the strength of pressure. Repeat three to five times. Rest your arms at your side between reps.
