    Cosmetic surgery isn’t the only option!

    Several women go for cosmetic surgery to enhance the size of their breasts which clearly shows that a significant number of women aren’t happy with their natural size. However, going under the knife is not the only way to enhance the breasts, but there are some natural methods that can you help in boosting the size. Since the breasts don’t have any muscles but only fatty cells and glands; there aren’t exercises that can actually enhance the breast size. But underneath the breasts, there are pectoral muscles which can be built up with  exercises to make your breasts look more firm. Here are some simple but effective exercises that you can do at home to enhance your breasts. Image Courtesy: Beautyhealthtips.in

    Wall Ups

    These are one of the simplest but most effective exercises for breast enhancement. Wall ups are similar to push- ups with only one difference being that you have to push against the wall instead of the floor. Stand two feet away from a wall and the gap between your feet should be equal to the shoulder-width. Now place your palms flat on the wall and bend your arms. Lean forward till your nose touches the wall. Hold that position for about 10 seconds and then repeat the same. Image Courtesy : womensfitness.co.uk

    Flys

    Grab dumbbells in your hand and lay down on the exercise bench with your feet flat on the floor. Keep the dumbbells above the shoulders with your elbow slightly bent. Now, lower the weights until your elbows are even with your chest. Keeping that same slight bend in your elbows press the weights back up. Perform 10 reps of this exercise and rest for 90 seconds before starting the next set. Image Courtesy: Exercise.about.com

    Push-ups

    Lie on your stomach and cross your feet. Put your hands flat on the floor and in front of your shoulders. Slowly lift yourself until your arms are fully extended and you are balanced on your shoulders. Keep your back as straight as possible and lower yourself back down by bending your elbows until you are parallel with the floor. Try not to touch your chest on the floor. Do two sets of 10.

    Rotation Push-Ups

    Rotation push-ups are a modified version of the standard push-ups. But, the fundamentals of the exercise are almost the same. You have to be on your toes and palms while keeping your body straight. Your arms should ideally be a shoulder-width apart but you can place them wider if you want. Go low as you bend your arms to the maximum extent. Then, straighten your arms to push your body back up. Now, raise your left arm followed by rotating your chest towards the left. Follow the same technique for the right breast. Image Courtesy: onsugar.com

    Elevated Push-Ups

    Elevated Push-Ups are most impactful as they take more effort than rotation push-ups. You will have to use steps or bench to keep your feet on. Get on your palms and toes with your palms being flat on the ground while your toes would be elevated. Bend your arms and go as low as you can. Now, push your body back up by straightening your arms.

    Chest Dips

    You will need exercise dip bars for chest dips. Grab on to the bars and pull your body up. Incline your body outwards in order to give your chest more attention. Now, as you descend to the original position, keep your chest in the same forward position. Repeat the exercise 20 to 30 times every day to get maximum effect.
