Lifting after breast augmentation
Healing varies person to person. Generally patients can return to lifting at about 6 weeks after surgery. You may be sore, so it is best to work up to your normal activity level gradually. Your surgeon will give you the best advice on this as he/she is most familiar with the details of your surgery.
Return to strenuous activities after breast augmentation
Typically, most patients by 4 weeks are ready to return to full activities, including exercise and strenuous work. That being said, often a gradual return can allow for an easier transition, as you have not been doing those same activities for the past month. Heavy lifting activities that really involve engaging the chest muscles can take longer than 4 weeks to return comfortably too. It sounds like you might have done just a bit too much too soon, and should start to feel more comfortable with those activities over the next few weeks.
