Practice around 10 push-ups a day to strengthen your pectoral muscles. The right way to do it is by starting on your fours, with feet close together and palms slightly wider than your shoulders. Your body should form a straight line from head to toe. Lower down until your chest almost touches the floor. Keep your upper arms at a 45 degree angle to your torso. Pause, then repeat. You should see results in a month or two.
Weight lifting is a great way to build up your pectoral muscle. You can try bench pressing or the dumbbell fly. To start off with, try a simple balance ball exercise you can do at the gym or at home. Use a balance ball to support your weight under your upper back and extend your legs out in a 90 degree angle. Start with a free weight in each hand with your hands rested on the ground at your sides. Bring your arms up into a 90 degree angle and hold the position for a few seconds. As soon as you can no longer handle the position, drop the weights back down to your sides, take a few seconds to rest and go back into the same motion.
