Natural Breast Reduction Exercises

Overview

Breast reduction can alleviate back strain, let you squeeze into smaller tops and help you achieve the breast size you desire. Use breast reduction exercises for a natural way to achieve your goal instead of plastic surgery. Since your breasts are made up of fat tissue with muscle directly beneath, you need to tone your muscles while burning fat. Combine aerobic exercise with strength training to reduce your breasts.

Single Arm Dumbbell Flyes

For single arm dumbbell flyes, choose a weight that will let you easily execute 12 to 15 repetitions. Lie on your back on a flat bench. Place your feet on the ground and hold on to the left side of the bench with your left hand. You should have someone hand you the dumbbell, according to ShapeFit.com. Grasp the dumbbell in your right hand and stretch your arm out wide to your side, bending your elbow slightly. "When you lift the dumbbell up, visualize hugging a giant tree trunk with that arm," according to ShapeFit.com. Slowly lower the weight back to your starting position. Perform the same number of repetitions on each side.

Isometric Chest Presses

This exercise engages your chest by using your muscular strength and resistance. Perform seated or standing isometric chest presses. Clasp your hands together, place them directly in front of your chest, and press your hands against one another as hard as you can. Hold this press for 10 seconds, release and repeat five to 10 times. Concentrate on flexing your chest muscles during each press.

Cardio Interval Training

Interval training is a form of cardio exercise that can help you burn calories. During interval training, you alternate intense and easy intervals of cardio activity for 20 to 25 minutes. Interval training burns more calories and more overall body fat than standard low-intensity cardio, according to the American Council on Exercise. Each interval can range from 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on your endurance level. If you select running as your activity, sprint at your fastest speed during the intense interval while walking or jogging slowly during the easy interval.
