Being someone of ample bosom, gravity can be a scary fact of life. I am lucky enough to still be in my mid twenties (ish) so my breasts aren’t exactly knocking about around by my knees. I can’t deny that I haven’t worried about what I will do when time catches up with me and my breasts start migrating south, let alone the effects of pregnancy. Big boobs run in my family, so even when I was a skinny slip of a teenager I was still burdened with big boobs. Having considered a breast reduction in the past I was more than willing to give the Triumph Boobcamp a whirl. I don’t like to shell out on anything unless I know for sure that it’s going to work so it’s just as well the audio mp3 bust workout and illustrated guide are free to download. It was launched in collaboration with No.1 Boot Camp, who I had the pleasure of spending a week with a year ago. The Triumph Boob Camp has been designed by ex Military instructors, complete with exercises formulated to ‘prevent a sagging bust line and avoid back pain’. Just what the doctor ordered.

Suffering flashbacks to my own boot camp experience and hearing echo’s of my drill instructor shouting at me, I begin to listen with some trepidation but I surprisingly find the warm up enjoyable. The head and arm rotations stretch out my neck, back and chest muscles and I can feel my arm muscles stirring into life. I swing my arms to the beat of the music eagerly imagining that in a few months time I’ll have toned arms to rival Jennifer Aniston. ?

I move on to the exercises, five different exercises lasting a total of 30 minutes. Dumbbells are needed for the three weighted exercises (or in my case two half litre bottles of water as I don’t really keep exercise equipment lying around as it gets in the way of my many exercise DVD’s that I have no intention of watching). Keeping in time to the fast beat of the music and eager not to disappoint my audio drill instructor I use my water bottles to extend my arms above my chest, to my sides and above my head. The moves work my pectoral muscles which helps to stop the breast area sagging.

Ditching my water bottles I move into rotational push-ups. I bend my arms, lowering myself closer to the ground. As I push up away from the ground I rotate my body round to the side and extend one of my arms up towards the ceiling. This move blitzes my whole upper body by targeting my shoulders, core, chest and tricep muscles. Wide arm push-ups signal the completion of the routine and being at the end of my targeted upper body exercises, they’re hard going. ?

Thankfully this isn’t a programme designed to increase bust size. After faithful testing my upper body muscles, my core, shoulders and chest. I feel stronger and the repetitive moves are easier to do. Performed every other day for six weeks the chest area is tightened, the muscles reanimated, supporting my boobs in their battle against gravity. It’s not a quick fix and it doesn’t claim to be. It won’t have instant dramatic visible results either but it does make your boobs just that little bit perkier within six weeks so you feel happier when you see yourself in the bathroom mirror. The great thing about the exercises is that your whole upper body is given an overhaul and your arms feel stronger and more defined. And the best bit? Unlike an exercise DVD or a personal trainer, it’s free.
