Workouts To Lift Breasts: Do They Work? Here’s Everything You Need To Know

Have you ever gotten the sudden urge to have perkier breasts? Well fact is that most women do consider this at some point in their lives and it’s perfectly normal. Now while workouts cannot produce a size increase, they can definitely give them a lift and make them look bigger and firmer. Here are some of the top exercises you can use to strengthen your pec muscles naturally, which should give your bust line a noticeable lift.


Top 5 Best Workouts To Lift Breasts

Before getting to the good stuff, let’s answer a few important questions. For example, can chest workouts be used to lift your breast? Technically, yes.

The breasts are made up of fatty tissues as opposed to muscles. Now while exercises can not directly change how your breasts look, they definitely can influence it. They do this by strengthening the chest muscles beneath your boobs to give that perkier, fuller appearance.

Some other benefits of working on your chest muscles include (1):

  • Improving your muscle tone
  • Improving your posture
  • Improving your upper body strength

That being said, here are the top 10 workouts to lift breasts you can try out at home or in the gym:

It’s no secret that planks bring lots of health benefits to the table (2). Throw in some dynamic movements and things get even better. Please note, you need to entirely focus on your chest throughout the workout.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Start by getting into a plank position (Head and neck neutral and your hands firmly stacked under your shoulder). Make sure that your lower back isn’t sagging when getting into this position.
  • Next, keep your core tight then lift your right hand and foot off the ground simultaneously. Step a foot toward your right side to complete one rep.
  • Pause and hold this position for about a second before moving the other foot to the right. 
  • Complete 10 steps to your right before switching sides and making your way back to your starting point. Finish off by stepping with your left hand and left foot.
  • Repeat three sets.

The Cobra Pose

This is one of the best workouts to lift and firm breasts without equipment. This pose is not that different from yoga. Additionally, it’s similar to push-ups, only that your legs remain flat on the floor while you arch your back.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Start by lying face down on the floor then place your hands on the floor next to your chest line. Ensure they are shoulder-width apart. Straighten your legs behind you and leave them flat on the ground.
  • Now brace your core then squeeze your glutes before lifting your upper body off the ground by straightening out your elbows.
  • Keeping your legs flat on the floor, arch your back. Don’t force yourself to completely lock out your elbows if you can’t do that naturally.
  • Lower yourself to the floor and repeat. Perform about 6-10 reps.

Dumbbell Pullover

Using benches or stability balls when performing this move will help you hit more muscles. Here’s how you should do it:

  • Set up by sitting on a stability ball or at the end of a bench. Now hold one moderate weight dumbbell or alternatively two lighter dumbbells.
  • Now lie back then walk your feet out until your knees form a 90 degree angle. Grab the dumbbell with both hands so that it becomes perpendicular to the ground and is straight up over your chest.
  • While maintaining the extended position of your arms, lower the dumbbell behind your head in an arc motion. This movement should cause a pull in your chest and you should also note that your core must remain tight during the motion.
  • Pause briefly before returning to your starting position. To avoid injury to your neck, don’t allow the weight to sag behind you.
  • Complete 4 sets of 14 reps.
