Here at Halto HQ it is our mission to make every big busted women forgot all about their boob hang ups. We have conquered the pain caused by the dreaded halter neck with the Halto, and aim for every woman to look and feel amazing in their favourite halter neck swimwear pieces. As experienced big boob owners we know that they can have an impact of lots of day to day activities, exercise being one of the big ones! So we have put together a guide on how you and your boobs can exercise together in harmony. The guide is split into two parts, the first half is focused on the gym, exercise classes and getting out and about, whereas the second half gives you a selection of five activities you can easily master at home. It’s no secret that exercise and big boobs do not get along, from rouge boobs flying about left right and centre to under boob sweat to trying to finding a sports bra that fits. This may sound funny, but this does actually stop some women from taking part in regular exercise (especially at the gym). First things first carrying all of that extra weight is not good for your back, so it is essential to have a strong back and core, lets get stuck in…
Yoga is your safe bet as it is almost always low impact and focuses on building core and back strength, which will help you to support your girls with less back pain. The Boat Pose is well known for core strength, as well as lower back strength and for toning the abdominal muscles (bloody hell, seems too good to be true!).
- Sit with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor. Lean back slightly so you’re balancing on your sit bones (the bony parts you feel when you sit on a hard surface). Raise your legs so your shins are parallel to the floor, knees bent.
- Extend your arms forward, parallel with floor, palms facing in. Keeping your chest high and your core engaged, begin to straighten your legs. Hold for five to 10 breaths. Repeat five times
2. The Dreaded Treadmill
Yes the treadmill is quite possibly the biggest culprit when it comes to boob malfunctions. However you can set the treadmill to a high incline, this will still get your blood pumping and will work wonders for your legs and bum, without causing any boob trauma.
3. Low Impact Cardio
Low impact cardio is much better for women with bigger boobs as it put less pressure on the spine. Activities could include walking, cycling or swimming, where you have control over how hard you push yourself and what your girls will allow you to do comfortably.
Girls we have you covered! If you haven’t already got the Halto whats stopping you? You can wear that halterneck piece that makes you feel great and not have to worry about what your boobs are thinking. Plus we have you covered for the many visits to the steam room, sauna, hot tub and sun loungers during your swim.
5. Strength Training
Believe it or not, increasing your muscle mass by strength training can help you to burn more fat. This can be anything from using the resistance machines at the gym, doing high reps with small dumbbell weight to deadlifting heavy weights from the floor.
However we know that part of being a woman is that you are constantly busy being a mum/daughter/girlfriend/wife/bread winner/shoulder to cry on/home maker/cake baker/business owner/ every thing else under the sun, so you may not have time to get to the gym, fitness class or even have half an hour to go for a walk. So here are five boob friendly and minimal bounce exercises you can do from home whilst conquering the rest of the world.
6. Squat To Toe Raises
Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart and toes pointing slightly outward, bend your knees until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Now, extend your legs and lift up onto your toes as high as you can. Squeeze your bum for a second. That is one rep. Continue for 15 reps.
7. Plank Up- Downs
Oh dear the dreaded plank, but its just so god for your core muscles!
Start in a push-up position with your legs together and wrists beneath your shoulders. Lower your left forearm to the ground, then lower your right forearm, keeping your body in a straight line from your head to your heels. Immediately return to starting position by placing your left palm, then your right palm, on the ground and extending both elbows. That’s one rep. Repeat, leading with your right arm to complete the second rep. Continue for 10 reps on each side.
8. Split Squats
Feel the burn with more squats, still no bounce back though! Stand with your left leg two to three feet in front of your right leg. Bend both knees 90 degrees, keeping your chest high with your shoulders directly over your hips.Pause, then extend your legs to return to the starting position. That’s one rep. Continue for 12 reps, then repeat on the opposite side for the same number of reps.
9. Plank Walkouts
And the plank is back. Just be grateful you aren’t doing burpees!
Standing with your feet hips-width apart and legs straight, knees soft, bend from the waist to place your palms on the ground an inch or two in front of your toes. Walk your hands forward until your body forms a straight line from your head to your heels. Keeping your legs as straight as possible, walk your hands back toward your feet. Stand up to complete one rep. Continue for 10 reps.
10. Star Squats
The Jumping Jack is one of the old classics when it comes to a boob catastrophe! Stick to star squats instead. Stand with your feet a few inches wider than your hips, with your toes slightly turned out and your arms extended overhead. Keeping your chest high and gaze forward, bend your knees and lower your arms out to the sides until your fingertips reach your toes. Pressing through your heels, reverse the movement to complete one rep. Perform 20 reps as quickly as you can.
