We spend a huge fraction of our time working out our “problem areas”. We mostly work on our abdominal muscles, legs, buttocks and arms. A focus point we forget to work out on is the bra bulge area. The bra bulges or the flabby fat that is around your back and sides that are more noticeable when wearing a bra. This bra bulges create unwanted bumps in your back and make wearing anything fitted seem like a total hassle.

Slowly raise the dumbbell towards the ceiling, keeping the side plank position, Lower it back to the ground and repeat 12 to 15 times. Repeat on the other side.
You will need an exercise ball with this move. Lay face down on the ball, the middle of the ball just below your chest. Keep your toes pointed at the ground and keep your feet together. Let your arm hang loose in front of you and keep your body balanced. Now raise your arm slowly to create a Y form with your body, hold this position for ten to fifteen second.

Now bend your upper body slightly or parallel with the ground. Place your hand that has the dumbbell in front while the other rest on your hips or on a chair/wall to keep your balance. Slowly raise the dumbbell to shoulder level. Repeat 10 times on each side. Keep your core engaged and your shoulder blades balanced.
5. Lateral Raise
