While most women are concerned about enlarging their breasts because they want to feel more feminine and attractive, have you thought about female body builders? Take a good look at some and you will see that they have huge breast muscles, so how do they do this?
The biggest fear of exercising the upper body for a woman is that it will decrease the size of your breasts. If you look at some pro athletes in certain sports they have hardly any breast size at all.
The reason these women have no breast to speak of is due to their diet and not to exercising. The breasts are made of fatty tissues and cells so when you restrict fat in your diet, your breasts will become smaller. This normally happens with extremely restrictive diets. The levels that are reached here are considered way below the normal healthy range for any woman.
Exercising can help increase your bust size and this is what female body builders concentrate on. Even though they may look flat chested on stage they have solid breast muscles.
Female body builders increase their breast size by concentrating on their pectoral muscles. These are the muscles directly below your breasts. As your pecs increase in size they build up muscle underneath the fat of your lower breasts. In turn this pushes and lifts your breasts up, making them perky and firm again. Women who work their pectoral muscles report seeing a nice improvement as well as gain cleavage.
There is a misconception that if you do a ton of pushups each day your breasts will enlarge. This is not true and for best results you really want to use a combination of various exercises.
The recommended exercises to perform include:
- Incline bench presses
- Cable flies
- Dumb bell flies
As with any exercise you need to tire your body to see all the benefits. When you do push ups you are tiring your body but you are not maximizing your strength to the degree needed to increase your breast size.
The best type of exercise for you is to add resistance to your training program. With push ups you could do this by having your small child sit on your back.
Your best bet is to do a mixture of the exercises we suggested above and finish your routine with pushups. Always try to increase the number of repetitions which you do and as your numbers increase add additional weight for resistance.
If you want firmer breasts but don’t necessarily want to become a body builder then increase your weight and repetitions until you see your desired results. Then you can maintain your program and keep your breast size.
