Give your breasts a lift with this quick five-minute workout. Toning, tightening, and strengthening your pecs will give your chest a natural boost. So grab a set of dumbbells between 5 and 10 pounds, and get ready to for some push-ups to help your push-up bra.
- Begin in a full plank. Lower your right elbow to the mat and then your left, coming into an elbow plank.
- Put your right hand on the mat, and straighten your right elbow. Do the same on the left to return to a full plank.
This move looks relaxing, but it’ll give your chest a little lift.
- Lie on your back with your hips and knees both at 90-degree angles. Using your low abs, press your lower back into the mat. Raise your arms toward the ceiling, palms facing each other, keeping the elbow joint slightly bent.
- Keeping your torso stable, open your arms out to the sides until your elbows are about two inches from the floor.
- Raise your arms back to the ceiling, bringing the weights together over your chest. This counts as one rep.
- Perform two to three sets of 10 to 12 reps
Singel Arm Push-Up
Working with the arms at different levels will challenge your upper body in a new way.
- Start in a plank position with your left hand .
- Keeping your torso square to the floor, perform a push-up by bending and straightening both arms. If a traditional push-up is too challenging, lower your knees to the floor.
- Complete 10 push-ups, then move the ball to the right hand for another 10 reps.
- With a pair of dumbbells and your feet hip-width distance apart, bend at the waist. Keep your back parallel to the floor with a neutral spine — not rounded.
- With a slight bend in your knees, hold your arms and the dumbbells extended out in front of you.
- Engage your abs and squeeze your shoulder blades together as you bring the weights to your torso. Be sure to keep your elbows in and pointed upward.
- Slowly lower the weights back to the starting position to complete one rep. Do three sets of 12 reps.
