How to tighten the breasts after childbirth: exercises

The most effective way to tighten the breasts is the performance of physical exercises, as in this way develop the pectoral muscles directly responsible for supporting the breasts. You should start classes not earlier than two months after childbirth – for the first time, the weakened body is enough and the usual load, carried out in the process of caring for the baby.

Exercises for the breast after childbirth are divided into three types:

  • exercises without the use of additional equipment;
  • exercises with dumbbells and on simulators;
  • swimming.

For women practicing breastfeeding, the second type of exercise is contraindicated.

Before you pump up your breasts after childbirth, be sure to do a little warm-up. This can be running or walking in place, bending and turning the torso, swinging the legs.

In general, you should not dwell only on exercises for breasts after childbirth – any other physical activities also affect the pectoral muscles in one way or another. Particular fanaticism also does not make sense, as for a proper effect it is enough to exercise 3-4 times a week.
