Small and large chested women can agree on one thing: Bra fat is not desirable. While most of us love sporting curves that keep our bras nice and full, we aren’t fans of extra fat spilling out in the armpit and back areas.
Since spot treating body fat isn’t possible, it will take a well-rounded fitness regimen to begin to see improvements in these areas.
The flabby, bulging area between the breast and the armpit tends to be a major problem for women all sizes. The same goes for extra flab on the back.
If you have this problem, you might not be doing enough to strengthen and tone your upper body. The exercises listed here are just suggestions. Any exercises targeting your chest, back and upper body will help.
You’ll need some lightweight dumbbells for some of these moves. Always speak with your doctor before beginning any new exercise regimen.
Hold a weight in each hand, and keep your arms at your sides, palms facing your body. Using only your shoulder muscles, pull your arms straight up toward the sky in a shrugging motion. From there, slowly lower back down.
Do a basic push up, but as you return to the starting position, lift one arm and point it straight forward so it’s in line with the rest of your body.
Hold that positive for two seconds, then slowly lower to the starting position. On the next push up, do the same thing with your other arm, and then switch back and forth.
With your feet hip-width apart and your dumbbells in your hands, bend forward at the hips and hold the weights below your chest.
From there, lift the weights out to each side, keeping your arms straight and your elbows unlocked. Try to stay focused and avoid wrenching your lower back to make it easier on your arms.
Not only will working out with weights help reduce bra fat, but it will also help prevent the bone disease osteoporosis later in life.
If you don’t currently do any form of exercise, adding cardio, such as bicycling or doing dance, will only improve your results.
However, there is another element to all of this, and it’s something that no one is discussing. That element is your attitude.
If you’ve ever heard of the film, “The Secret,” you may already know about the law of attraction. The basic idea is that you get what you focus on in life.
This is a huge factor when it comes to fitness, because most people tend to go into exercise with a bad attitude. Ask yourself, have you ever thought any of the following prior to or during one of your recent workouts?
“I have to work out today. I ate like a pig at lunch.”
“I don’t know why I bother with exercise. I never get the results I want.”
“I’m going to be fat and ugly no matter how much exercise I do.”
Understand that we aren’t suggesting that you go around with a negative attitude all day long. In fact, it’s incredibly common to have negative thoughts without even realizing it.
Through learning about the law of attraction, we can begin to frame things in a more motivating, positive light. For example, instead of thinking the thoughts listed above, try:
“That big lunch I had will provide me plenty of fuel for my workout today.”
“I’m doing great at exercise, but I still have plenty of room for improvement.”
“Exercise will help me develop the confidence I need to realize I am beautiful.”
As you begin to experience the power of positive thinking, a new way of motivation will arrive, and you will begin to grow even more excited about being a conscious creator of your body and life.
