For perkier pecks, you have come to the right place! Your breasts are made up of two muscles, the Pectoralis Major and the Pectoralis Minor for the most part, with a few smaller muscle groups in between. But to keep them strong and able to keep your bust in place, there are a few key workouts you should concentrate on. They are outlined for you below, so let’s get started!
The Cobra Pose
The Cobra Pose is part of many different yoga style routines and for good reason. It encompasses your core and your chest muscles to give a good stretch and ready you for your coming workout as well as strength training. Begin laying on the floor on your stomach. Your head should be extended and the tops of your feet on the floor. Place your hands under your shoulders and tuck in your elbows. Lift your head and chest off the ground, keeping your shoulders back and your neck in a neutral position. Hold for 30 seconds before releasing back down to the ground. You can repeat this three times at the beginning of your routine.
Starting in the plank position, lift your right hand and right foot, stepping out to the side. Pause and send your body back to the centre using your left hand and left foot. Repeat 10 times for one set and repeat for three sets all up.
The push up is a simple exercise that anyone can do, and it has a great effect on a range of muscles, including your chest muscles. Starting in the plank position, bend your elbows, slowly lowering your body to the floor. Keep your core tight as you lower and raise your body, repeating for as many reps as you can!
Dumbbell Chest Press
The bench press is your original chest exercise, but adding dumbbells gives you that extra strength training too. Start by sitting at the end of the bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Lower yourself so your back is flat against the bench, knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Bringing your arms out to the side and elbows bent raise and lower the dumbbells. Brace your corse and extend your elbows, repeating for three set s of 12 reps.
Medicine Ball Superman
Chanel your favourite superhero with the medicine ball superman! All you will need is yourself and of course a medicine ball. To begin, lay flat on your stomach and extend your arms out in front of you. The medicine ball should be between your hands. Your head and neck should be in a neutral position. Using your core and chest, raise your legs and upper body and the medicine ball off the ground. Lift as high as you can initially and push yourself each time you perform this exercise. Just remember not to strain your neck. Return to your starting position and repeat for three sets of 12 reps.
