Why you simply must embrace the SkinnyLegs 'perk up'
Want a beautiful, sustainable, everlasting, lifted, perky bosom?
In my opinion, the only reason we as women even want or need to do the dreaded push up is this, to have and to hold gorgeous "schmoobs". Who wouldn't want that?
Don't bother with the misconception that you need to have strong biceps to do a push up or do girly push ups, I've seen it, and all of us are able to perform the following SkinnyLegs version of the push up with all of the benefits of the real McCoy.
First of all, the muscles used to do a push up are the triceps (back of your arms), your abs and your pectoral muscles (the just above your 'girls' lifting muscles), not your biceps like many think.
Get into push up PERFECT position - stand facing a wall and get so close to the wall that a body part hits the wall, it will likely be your bosom that hits first (not your nose or hips - remember this later!). Then take it to the floor on all fours and take one leg back at a time extending into a long, straight board, nose facing the floor, neck an extension of your spine. Hold here in plank position and be aware of your abs kicking in (slurp your belly button to spine), the back of your arms and your pecs finding the strength to hold you in perfect position. Resist the urge to go into downward dog, keep your hips down but not droopy, retain that perfect board.
For now, as you gain strength, hold as long as you can and only drop to a knee when you absolutely must, then pop back up to the board when ready.
(Note: starting out on your knees disengages almost every muscle we want to work so why bother, we want beautiful ta ta's)
Continue building strength in plank until you feel ready to start to bend your arms and slowly drop to the floor, try a count of 5 to get down in one long, frozen board and literally bail out at the bottom and flop on the floor. No need to come back up, you've already worked everything! (Until of course, you are ready to go to the next level!)
Try doing these SkinnyLegs 'perk ups' and I guarantee you will feel stronger and your girls will look amazing!
