Boost your B-cup
Chest size is more than just a number. It can alter the way a woman’s clothes fit, her stride, what jewellery she wears… ultimately, how confidently she walks into a room. Of course, nothing’s going to net you bigger cleavage than taking the plunge (pun intended), but there are exercises you can do to keep things a little firmer where it counts.
The key is to work your pectoral muscles, those flat planes that lie underneath a woman’s breast tissue – and give Superman such a formidable front. Crack out your breast moves (okay, enough with the cleavage jokes) with this boost-or-bust workout.
Inject your chest workout with this great Pilates move (pictured). Get into the push-up position. Squeezing your shoulder blades together, lift and rotate, so one hand reaches up to the ceiling, your body forming the shape of a ‘T’. Repeat on the other side – that’s two reps; do three sets of 10.
Nailed it? Try the camel plank. Instead of rotating, lower onto your right hand first, then left, then step it back down again. Repeat, starting with the opposite hand. Do as many as you can in one minute.
Lie on a flat bench, a dumbbell in each hand, feet firmly on the ground. Position your hands above your shoulders, elbows close in. Push up and bringing the dumbbells closer, then lowering them wide again – that’s one rep; do three sets of 8-10.
Nailed it? Try an incline dumbbell press. Same exercise, just incline the bench to 45 degrees. Makes it a bit harder, and works the top pecs for added lift.
Place your feet hip-width apart (or knees, if you’re just starting out), hands on the floor underneath your shoulders. Keeping your gaze straight ahead, core strong and shoulder blades together, lower your chest to the ground, then push back up. That’s one rep; do three sets of eight.
Nailed it? Try clapping push-ups – that’s right, push up explosively, and try to clap your hands before face planting. (But if you don’t make it, we can help with that too.)
