Your Mom’s or Grandma’s or if you ever read the Judy Blume book “Are You There God? Its Me Margaret” will remember the chant “We must, we must! We must increase our bust!” while exercising. While the size of your breast doesn’t matter, the one part to take away is the exercise bit.
Were continuing our chat about breast health and the many ways you can keep them perky and happy! First lets look at some great exercises you can do to keep the pectoral muscles happy – doing this will give you a natural breast lift as the lie directly under your breast tissue.
Here are a couple you can do as a 30-day challenge. What great is you can do them from the comfort of your own home!
The Push Me Up
- Keeping your back straight, lower your chest down to the floor, bending you elbows and inhaling. Stop when your chest is just above but not touching the floor.
- Exhale slowly as you push your arms straight until your body is back up to the starting position.
Start by doing as many press ups as you can while maintaining perfect form (this is key) 10 would be a good goal and then add one a day for the next 29 days. Also depending on your fitness level you can choose either position.
Where you should feel this working: Really focus your mind on those muscles across your chest above your boobs and concentrate on tensing those when you are at the top of the press-up. Lower your chest as close to the floor as you can, remember slow and controlled is much better than speedy and sloppy!
Hold a 1.5 litre water bottle in each hand (filled). Lay down on the floor on your back with your knees bent and feet planted firmly on the floor. Keep movement fluid, slow and controlled.
- Extend your arms fully out to the sides, at right angles with your body.
- With elbows slightly bent, lift both bottles in a straight line arcing up and meeting directly above your chest. Give an extra little squeeze on those muscles down the centre of your chest.
- In a controlled manner, bring arms back to the floor, keeping elbows slightly bent throughout the entire exercise (imagine wrapping your arms around a large tree)
Repeat the whole movement. A good goal for the first day would be 20. Then add one a day.
Where you should feel this working: The Fly is very specifically created to wake up your pecs.
We’d love to see your results after your 30-day challenge!
Next lets take a look at some foods that promote breast health!
Which include, broccoli, kale, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens are very high in Vitamin A and C, and are also rich in phytochemicals called indoles and sulforaphan, which are an excellent source of antioxidants!
Which include, lentils, beans and peas. Not only are they rich in protein, but also fiber, folic, iron and an array of antioxidants.
Plums & Peaches
Researchers at Texas A&M recently found that plums and peaches have antioxidant levels to rival “superfood” blueberries.
Oily fish are great because they are high in omega 3 and vitamin D. To minimize exposure to mercury, choose oily fish that are lower on the food chain, such as anchovies, herring, mackerel, or sardines.
Another great source of omega 3 that is not animal based in flax seed, the best source is the seed and not the oil, as you will get more benefit.
