Common causes of sagging breasts are obesity, childbirth and breastfeeding, as well as aging. Chest toning exercises that build the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscles underneath your breasts will help lift your breasts to prevent the appearance of sagging. The exercise machine that best targets the chest is the chest press machine. There are also other machines you can use to lift the chest muscles.
Chest Press Machine
Using the chest press machine is like doing push ups, but the advantage of using a chest press machine is that it allows you to adjust the amount of weight you push as resistance against your chest muscles. Adjust the machine seat until you establish your comfortable sitting height. You want the machine's handle bars to be parallel to your upper chest. Adjust the handle distance to match your body's width; you want your hands and your shoulders to be aligned. Press the handle bars forward until your elbows are almost fully straight. Pull back to your original position. Do 12 to 15 repetitions per set, and do 3 sets with one minute breaks in between each.
Lever Chest Dip
Doing the lever chest dip will target your pectoral chest muscles and building those will lift your chest. You'll need to use a seated lever machine at the gym to do this. Adjust the lever's weight and seat height. Sit on the seat, grip the handle bars with your palms facing toward you and lean forward just slightly. Push down, allowing your elbows to move out and away from your body. Slowly release and repeat.
The bench press also targets your chest. Lie on your back on the bench with your upper chest beneath the lever bar. Hold the lever bar with your palms facing toward your toes. Press up and straighten your arms but don't lock your elbows. Slowly lower and repeat. Use the help of a spotter if it's your first time doing the bench press. For safety reasons, don't use as much weight as you otherwise would if you can't find a spotter. Be careful of where you lower the bar; have it come right to the middle of your chest. For an easier variation, use dumbbells or exercise bands.
Other Machines that Lift your Breasts
The standing cable machine will help lift your chest when you do standing cable flies. By using a seated cable press machine, you can do the seated cable press, seated decline cable press and the seated incline cable press to target your chest and lift your breasts.
