Breast Enhancement - The Natural Way to Do ItWritten by Rachelle Arlin Credo
Having a well-filled breast is almost every woman's dream. In a society like ours where having big breasts is adored and given such emphasis, it is not surprising that every flat-chested woman desires to be well-endowed. Various breast enhancement products have come to forefront that promise to give fuller breasts. But there's no proof that they really work. "If these estrogens were powerful enough to be effective, creams wouldn't be available over counters," notes Seth Matarasso, M.D., an associate clinical professor of dermatology at University of California, San Francisco. "No pill can safely increase your breast size," says Kelly Shanahan, ob/gyn and author of "Your Over-35 Week-by-Week Pregnancy Guide". While nothing short of surgery will make your boobs look like that of Pamela Anderson's, there are less invasive options that can make a difference. Here's ultimate guide to beautiful breasts at any age.
Okay, so exercise won't add inches to your breasts. Breasts are largely fatty tissue and there's no exercise to grow fat. But exercise can make your breasts sit higher and more even on your chest because it builds up pectoral muscles directly below breasts. This pushes breasts outward giving them appearance of being a bit larger. If you strengthen your back muscles, you can also improve your posture and make your chest look a hundred times better. Try to do following exercise everyday to increase your breast size naturally and to firm them up:
a. The Push-ups: This will help keep your chest muscles firm and toned. To do this, put your hands and knees on floor with your back flat. Align your hands with your bust. Bend your arms and lower yourself until your chest almost touches floor. Then push yourself back up to starting position. Hold this pose for a few seconds and then bend your arms again bringing your torso down a few inches to floor. Repeat this ten times. On second week, perform two full sets of ten repetitions. And on third week thereafter, do three full sets every other day.
b. Modified Push-ups This is akin to push-ups mentioned earlier. The only difference is that instead of hands and knees on floor, lower arms, elbows and toes are placed against floor. The torso is raised up but your lower arms and elbows and toes are kept on floor.
c. The back extension Back extensions strengthen your upper and lower back muscles, thus improving posture. To do this, after each set of push-ups, lie facedown on floor, lift one arm and opposing leg a few inches straight in air simultaneously, and hold on for a count of ten. Do move twice on each side.
d. Bench Press: This is best exercise for shaping and firming your bust line because aside from shaping and firming bust line, it also sculpts shoulders and tightens triceps. To perform this exercise, lie flat on a bench, with one foot on each side of bench touching floor. Firmly press your head, shoulders, back and butt on bench while sticking up your chest. Keep dumbbells about 18-20 inches apart and parallel to floor with your palms facing upwards. Slowly push dumbbells straight up, away from your chest. Fully extend your arms but don't lock your elbows when arms are fully extended. The dumbbells should now be approximately a few feet above your chest. Pause slightly at top of movement then slowly lower dumbbells back down to starting position. Inhale and hold your breath as you lower dumbbells. When they reach chest, begin to move weight upward again. Exhale as you pass point of greatest resistance. Repeat this 8 to 12 times to complete one set. You can perform about 1 to 3 sets at a session and about 3 sessions per week with a day's rest between sessions.
