I don't have much time for exercise, and while I would love to do Yoga, I find it's too slow and I can't get enough in to get a real workout. Do you have any suggestions for me.
Linrosmerc; what you've experienced is most likely hatha yoga which is supposed to relax and release- there are many different types. Power (or Ashtanga) yoga is a faster moving program that is done in a heated room (if you're at a studio). It's INTENSE.
Albob22- I'd say definitely yoga because I think if you firm up the pectoral muscle it should help.
If you do any free weight training, fly outs work wonders, they've toned my second boobs down to almost nothing.
...along with 60 min. of cardio 3-4 times a week and other free weight strength exercises of course.
I do them standing, with a slight bend at the elbows, making sure never to lock your knees. Start with a lower weight and work your way up. I do 3 sets of 12 reps. That link will show you the prone position of doing them.
As for chest/back exercises: Chest flies and rows, with actual weights. No machines, no 5lb weights. Your back and chest are strong, work them with real weights!
The y will work your back much more as well, while the I concentrates on your chest.
At least that's where I feel it the most the next day ;) Hope that helps!

I've been down to 14.1% body fat and still had "extra boobs" between my arms and chest. It was quite frustrating, because I had almost no breasts, but my "extra boobs" were still there. I also did aloooot of pushups. The real kind, not the girl kind. I'm kind of over it.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
