Black don’t crack, but boobs do fall. There’s no bigger sign of your time, than noticing what was once up, is on the way down. Exercise not only keeps your internal clock ticking, it’s also a great way to keep all your parts perky for years to come. We broke down most common places where sagging occurs with suggestions to improve, so follow us…
Chin: Sagging chins are the pits. They’re the one place that can’t be surgically lifted, only cut out…literally. So, before you consider going under the knife try this: The trick is to strengthening the lower jaw/chin is to reduce under-chin fat. Genius Beauty suggests lying on your back with straight legs and hands on the floor near your thighs. Press your chin to your chest and hold in this position for 2 seconds. Then slowly tilt your head back, then again slowly press your chin to you chest.
Breasts: A lot of women are self conscious of their breasts, especially after pregnancy/breast feeding. Have no fear, there’s always ways to improve your bust. The day-to-day remedy is to walk upright and keep a straight posture. It’s also vital that you wear the correct bra! Make sure the bra supports you back and uplifts the breast, without putting too much pressure on your shoulders.
Back: The back is one area that women don’t pay too much attention to. But when worked out, it can take years off your look in a backless gown. To keep your back looking slender and Hot, women should work their shoulders. Women’s Health suggests this method: Lay on your stomach, face downward. Rest your arms on the floor, completely straight and at a 30-degree angle to your body, so they form a Y. Your palms should be facing each other, so that the thumb side of your hand points up. Raise your arms as high as you comfortably can. Then move your arms so that they’re out to your sides—perpendicular to your body with the thumb side of your hand pointing up—and raise them as high as you comfortably can.
Stomach: Keeping your abs tight can be difficult, especially for women whose weight goes straight to their tummy. The more susceptible to tummy weight, the harder you’re going to have to work, but the results are worth it. Our favorite workout is the hip-thigh raise: Lie face forward on the floor with your right knee bent and your left leg extended. Keeping your upper body and arms on the ground, raise your hips two inches off the floor and repeat.
Vagina: That’s right. This is an important area too. Doctors suggest pelvic or kegel exercises. One great move is to tighten and loosen the muscle that makes you feel like you’re holding in pee. Don’t hold your breath or tighten any other part of your body while doing this. To make sure you’re working the pelvic muscle correctly, put your hands on your abdomen to make sure you can’t feel your belly, thighs, or buttocks moving.
Knees: Working out the knees simultaneously works the legs…but who’s going to complain about sculpted Tina Turner legs. MN’s favorite knee workout is simple: Put your back against any wall and bend your knees as if there’s a chair underneath you. Stand like that as long as you possible can and repeat. Sooner than later you’ll feel the burn.
