You don’t need pricey plastic surgery to create a better-looking bust. You can get an au naturel lift with our six easy exercises. As well as targeting chest muscles that surround and support your breasts, you’ll hone in on postural muscles in your back and shoulders.The secret to making your breasts pop is to improve your posture by strengthening muscles like the deltoids in the back of your shoulders, and the rhomboids and lats in your upper back.
You’ll need weights, a stability ball and a resistance band. Choose a weight that is heavy enough to challenge your target muscles, but not so heavy that your joints feel strained. Start with 5- to 8-pound dumbbells and gradually work up to using 6 to 20 pounds. Do this work-out two to three times a week, with a rest day in between. Perform one set of eight to 12 repetitions of each exercise, and work up to doing three sets of eight to 12 reps.
