Does anybody know of any good workouts for your pec muscles?? My breasts are, well, rather on the larger side compared to my thinner body, and I just want to boost them a little, I don't want saggy boobies when I get older, yuck! Also, does anyone know of any good pelvic and lower ab exercises?? The advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!
Do bear in mind that pectoral muscles and breast tissue are two very different things. While strengtheing your chest muscles creates a strong, uplifted base for your breasts, your breasts are your breasts, and gravity is gravity.
They will sag as they will as you get older: that's a good ol'fact of life, especially if you use them for what they were meant for.
Let's remember that saying any sort of body shape or form is "yuck!" can not only be pretty hurtful to people who have that shape, but you'll find that those attitudes may make it harder for you to respect and love your body as it grows and changes.
Yep, the butterfly and push ups are good ones. If you have access to a gym, there are a few others: Pullovers Bench Press Shoulder Press Pec Dec (just like the butterflies except it's a machine)
edited to add:
If you're going to be doing some seriuos pec work outs, it would be worthwhile to work out the opposing muscle group so that you don't suffer from too strong pec muscles... Basically, do the inverse of the butterfly, where you're on your stomach instead of back instead of stomach and you lift from in front of you out to the sides.
