Real talk: There’s not a workout on earth that will lift your breasts. That’s mostly because exercise only works your muscles, not your sagging skin. That said, surgery isn’t the only way to beat gravity.
“These exercises are the next best thing,” says Tanya Becker, co-founder and chief creative officer of Physique 57, a barre-based fitness empire beloved by celebs like Hilaria Baldwin and Alessandra Ambrosio. “They will strengthen and tone up all of your chest muscles and improve your posture,” she says. And when you stand taller and stronger? You’ll benefit from the ~*illusion*~ of perkier breasts.
Instead of surrendering to a super-supportive bra and calling it a day, start practicing these moves, demonstrated by Physique 57 instructor Shoba Narayan. All you need is one pair of 2- to 3-pound dumbbells and an inflated playground ball (or small Swiss ball). Complete as many reps as you can in 60 seconds, switching sides halfway through when you need to, then progress to the next exercise.
