Just because you have had breast augmentation doesn’t mean you have to lay aside your active lifestyle. In fact, working out can expedite your recovery process. That said, CrossFit is a whole different phenomenon. It requires you to go to the extremes of exercising, with a focus on strength and range of motion. In other words, you need to be at the level of athletes to make it through this exercise regimen.
With all that in mind, breast augmentation can impact your ability to participate in CrossFit activities, especially during recovery.
What to Consider
If you’re a CrossFit maniac and want to acquire breast implants, there are factors to consider.
1. Implant Option
While you have many implant options to choose from, you need one that will suit your physically active lifestyle. For instance, a teardrop implant is known to be ideal for this kind of lifestyle. It is one of the most advanced and latest implants suitable for those in need of durability, comfortability, and stability. Seek your surgeon’s recommendations on the best implants.
2. Implant Size
There is no doubt that implants will increase the size of your breasts. While big boobs will make you look great, they can weigh heavily on you, resulting in physical issues like back pain, especially if you get involved in intense exercise. As such, it is advisable to go for implants with a limited size.
3. Implant Placement
Your breast implants can be placed under or over your muscle; the decision is all yours. Although the under-the-muscle placement is the most popular of the two options (it makes your breasts feel more natural when touched), it may not be ideal for CrossFit enthusiasts. For bodybuilders, muscles can compress the implant when they flex, causing issues with the judges.
