Women want it, men desire it and it’s not necessarily the size but the perk! Read on for the best chest workout for women who want perky boobs!
In order to gain perkiness or have the appearance of sexy décolletage, you should first come to realize the anatomy of a woman’s chest. The breast itself has no muscle tissue and the growth occurs because of the accumulation of fat in the connective tissue of the breast.
The muscle lies underneath for which it ultimately separates the breast tissue from the rib cage. So, as it may seem, if a woman is to achieve a firmer, larger pectoral muscle area, the breasts themselves would appear perkier and, quite possibly, slightly larger.RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU
The best chest workout for women:
The most effective way to perform pushups for a perkier bust line is to perform while in a close-grip position, with straight legs or in a modified position, on your knees.
Instead of doing a pushup with a wider hand stance, simply make a triangle with your index fingers and thumbs, positioned under your chest and push through the pectorals, lengthening your arms without locking out your elbows. Slowly lower and repeat. Bonus: This is a great move for your tricep muscles too, so say goodbye to the flabby arms.
You can perform this exercise in a number of different ways but the most simple way is lying face up on a bench, holding 8-10 pound dumbbells. Open arms wide while keeping the elbows slightly bent and then close arms so that your hands are over your chest.
Hold this position for a beat and open arms once again; repeat. A great variation with this exercise is to simply adjust the bench into an inclined or declined position. With this adjustment, there is a slight variation on the targeted area of the chest.
This is another exercise that can be performed in a number of different ways. Be sure that the weight you use is heavy enough to begin to burn towards your last few repetitions.
Perform a pushup. Then, while keeping your hands on the ground, jump your feet forward towards your hands and finish off the move with a powerful jump upwards towards the sky; repeat in a quick and explosive manner, beginning with a pushup. This is a great addition to any chest workout because you are not only working your chest and tricep muscles, but you are getting a great burst of cardio.
Perform these exercises 2-3 times per week, completing 3-4 sets of 12-15 repetitions for each exercise.
Don’t forget to stretch
Grasp your hands together behind your back and move your arms towards your upper back, or as far as you comfortable can. Hold for 20-30 seconds, release and repeat 2-3 times. Remember to keep breathing through the stretch in a normal rhythmatic pattern.
In order to avoid a muscle imbalance you need to add back exercises as well. You can find some great ones here. You can either pair them up with these chest exercises or simply add them to a separate day.
What are some other points to consider? Getting a good bra, keeping your weight in check through regular exercise and proper diet, and watching your posture, are all great ways to add to the perkiness!
