If you are small busted and reading this because you want some exercises to increase your breast size, stop now. This one’s for the ladies who already have a full bust and are struggling to workout with a couple of melons stuck on their chest.

You know when someone asks you to join them on a quick walk to the shops, without realising you need at least one business day of notice in order to find your sports bra and emotionally prepare yourself for the inevitable bouncing? Yeah. We hear you. We see you. Don’t even get us started on tennis, soccer, football or horse riding.

Despite the challenges you inevitably face when you’re trying to get your heart rate up, there’s actually plenty of ways around the pain and discomfort you’ve experienced! Let’s jump right in, figuratively speaking of course. We don’t want any black eyes!

1. HIIT

If you’re looking for cardio then try low impact HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). It’s best to do these in true HIIT format, which is 40 seconds on, 20 seconds off for a duration of 40 minutes. You are allowed 2 breaks of 60 seconds each. The purpose of this is to maintain a high heart rate throughout the workout. This method has been proven to burn more calories because of its ‘afterburn’ or EPOC ‘Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption’.

But how is this fuller bust friendly, I hear you ask? Simple! Invest in a good quality, super supportive sports bra. You’ll be shocked by the difference it actually makes!

If you are just starting out doing HIIT then here’s a few tips:

  • Start off slowly and at your pace, then exert yourself when you’re comfortable
  • Do exercises that you like mixed with some that are out of your comfort zone
  • Keep it interesting
  • Fuel up properly and make sure you drink plenty of water
  • Listen to your body

2. Tabata

Similar to HIIT but in shorter spurts. These intervals are 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off. Designed specifically for ultimate burn, the exercises themselves are also challenging.

If you intend to do high impact exercising such as horse riding, running, boxing or burpees, then make sure you are well supported in a comfortable high impact bra that fits you. Try the bounce factor in the changing room to see the difference between your normal bra and a good sports bra (not a crop top), you’ll be amazed.

3. Walking or hiking

A great stress relief is to go for a walk, as long as it isn’t a power walk (unless you have a good bra on, of course). Try a walk off the beaten track, or better still, try a hike off the beaten trail. Get lost and exhilarated.

4. Rowing or kayaking

If you have a row machine, this is a great way to burn some calories. You can really get your aggression out on one of those. Try kayaking if you’re able to, out on the open water.

Cycling: Sorry but this one is out, unless you are properly supported. No matter how many people say it’s low impact, it’s not. It may have a low impact on your knees but not on your breasts. They’ll act as pendulums and knock together every time you go over a bump.

5. Tai chi or yoga

Some yoga poses can actually be difficult if you have a large breast that gets in the way of you being able to lie on your stomach. If you have a good instructor, they will be able to advise some alternatives for you. Tai chi is a fluid movement that is mainly done while standing, so this one is definitely boob friendly.

6. Pilates

The best for core strength and bonus, there’s no jarring movements.

7. TRX

Grab yourself a pair of straps or head to the park and use a kids’ swing. Resistance training straps can be attached to any sturdy structure.

8. Swimming or water aerobics

Perfect for if you have bad knees also or any sort of back pain. Swimming is great for larger busts, as gravity isn’t as nasty in water.

9. Weights

If you’re fuller busted, a strong back is especially important because you need to carry your breast weight around daily. Try some back and shoulder weights and even throw in some leg sets to keep things interesting.

There are a few options here to keep you going. Remember to warm up before you do any strenuous exercise and always stretch afterwards. Try to incorporate some sort of activity into each and every day.

Although a fuller bust can make exercise more challenging, there are so many ways around this. If there are some exercises that are difficult to do because of lying on your front or not being able to cross your arms properly, just ask your instructor or a personal trainer for some alternative movements so you can freely move and feel like you’re not doing an obstacle course with your obstacles in the way.
