Let’s be honest: This workout won’t turn A cups into Bs or beyond. But if—like most women—you rarely train your chest, then you’re missing out on a natural way to add a little extra oomph.

EXERCISE 1DUMBBELL BENCH PRESS
Lie faceup on a bench with your arms straight, a dumbbell in each hand (A). Lower the dumbbells until they’re close to the sides of your chest (B), then press them back up to the starting position. That’s one rep. Do 10 reps, then go to move 2 without rest.
Start on all fours, your palms slightly wider than your shoulders, feet close together. Your body should form a straight line from head to toe (A). Lower down until your chest almost touches the floor. Keep your upper arms at a 45-degree angle to your torso (B). Pause, then push back to the starting position. Do 10 pushups and rest 90 seconds.
Repeat moves 1 and 2 one more time (so you’ll do each exercise twice). Rest 90 seconds before move 3.
EXERCISE 3INCLINE DUMBBELL BENCH PRESS
Sit on an adjustable bench set to a low incline (about 15 to 30 degrees) and place your feet flat on the floor. Grasp two dumbbells and hold them up above your shoulders, arms straight (A). Slowly lower the weights down to the sides of your chest (B). Pause, then press the dumbbells back up toward the ceiling. Do 10 reps, then go to move 4 without rest.
