As I've mentioned before, I'm a 34DD. I am quite conscious of my breasts, as I do not want them to start sagging until I'm too old to care. (If that ever happens.) I've also done an article on the pros and cons of wearing a bra, citing conflicting studies that basically tell us that no one really has a clue as to whether or not wearing a bra can prevent sagging breasts. One thing is for certain, though: the right exercises will both firm and lift your girls and no, you will not look like a pro bodybuilder afterward. Not even a little bit -- that is a myth, so just forget that ridiculous old wives' tale. Now, that's not to say your breasts might not get a tiny bit smaller. They might; and they might not. If they do, it's not going to be enough for anyone to notice, unless you're also actively trying to lose weight at the same time.
Before we get into the exercises, it's important to note that these are very easy to do. We're doing them on the stability ball, which is far easier (but just as effective) as the traditional methods. These are easy on your back and butt, while still giving you a good foundation to work from. The first video shows the technique on the stability ball. The second shows a different exercise on a bench -- don't worry, you can do the same thing on the ball. If you prefer lying on the floor or bench, that's fine, too.
Stability Ball Dumbbell Presses
Your back, shoulders and head should all be resting on the stability ball. Your legs should be out in front of you, with your feet flat on the floor.
Hold the dumbbells close to your chest, knuckles facing the ceiling. Extend your arms toward the ceiling until they're straight. Bring the weights closer together, but try to avoid letting them touch.
Slowly lower them back to your chest and repeat step two.
Stability Ball Dumbbell Fly
Same position as with the dumbbell chest presses.
Grip the dumbbells in the same manner, with your knuckles facing the ceiling. Extend both arms -- this will be your starting position.
Slowly spread your arms to about chest-width. Hold for a count of 5. Next, slowly spread them again until they're at 45 degree angles with your torso. Hold for a count of 5. Next, lower them until the dumbbell is about even with your shoulder.
Extend your arms toward the ceiling again and repeat step 3.
