‘Exercise really is the fountain of youth, because if we do the right moves, we can slow down the ageing process and help keep the bust firm and lifted’
“Cooper’s ligaments” are connective tissues that lift the bust, attached to your collar bone and the underlying tissue of the pectorals – picture the ligaments as a bra strap. well, we can tighten this “strap” through exercise.
THE BOOK BUST LIFT:
Step 1: stand with your feet hip-width distance apart, with your knees slightly bent, holding onto a book between the palms of your hands. your fingers should be pointing forwards and your arms fully extended, at chest height, squeezing as tightly as you can.
Step 2: maintaining the squeeze, draw the book towards the centre of your chest, as you bend your elbows out to the side. the important part of this exercise is to maintain that squeeze. then return to the start position.
THE KILLER CLEAVAGE LIFT:
Step 1: Lie face up on your mat with your knees bent and feet frmly on the foor, your arms out wide to your side, with a slight bend in your arms and your palms facing up. you can use hand weights if you want.
Step 2: Pull in your tummy muscles and, at the same time, draw both your arms up so they meet in the middle, keeping them in line with your bust. hold, then slowly lower back down to the start position.
THE BRA ENHANCER:
Step 1: Kneeling on all fours and holding onto your hand weights, fully engage your core muscles by pulling in your tummy tight.
Step 2: ease one arm up, by bending through your elbow, aiming to get the weight by your shoulder. hold for a second, then slowly lower. alternate from side to side. it is important to keep your hips still as you do this, so be sure to keep the tummy pulled in. *Feel Good You Magazine*
