The Fitness Trainer: Get Rid of Saggy Boobs

questionHow do I get rid of saggy boobs?

There isn’t anything you can do that will actually get rid of saggy boobs, but you can tone up the pectoral muscles and tissues that support them.

I recommend bench presses:

  • No other exercises can lift the breasts better than the free weight incline, decline and flat bench press. Using dumbbells or the bar, lie on your back. If you are on the decline, make sure to use the leg rests so you don’t slide.
  • Unrack the weight bar, or have your trainer/workout partner hand you the dumbbells, and lower the weight to within an inch of your chest. The bar or dumbbells should be in line with your nipple line.
  • Press it back up until your arms are almost locked.
  • Do three sets of 10.

I also recommend the pectoral press:

  • Using a set of five pound weights, from a standing position, with your elbows out to the sides of your body.
  • Slowly bring your arms together until they touch – then slowly bring your arms back together.
  • Length and hold for a few seconds.
  • Repeat this 10 to 15 times.

Plus, the butterfly press:

  • Sit in a chair with a five pound weight in each hand, slowly lift your arms to shoulder length and hold for a few seconds.
  • Repeat this 10 to 15 times.
