To do this, simply stretch your legs about 200 cm apart. Then, you spread your arms as far apart as you can. Now, raise your arms above your head and make a clap with your palms before taking it back to your side. Make sure you keep your legs stretched and your palms meet above your head.
Make a count of 20 with your clap and do it for about 5 sets at different intervals.

Pull your arms back and forth at intervals making the muscles around your chest contract. You can do this exercise as much as 5 times per day to build the muscles around your breasts.
