the reason its anecdotal is because theres no real support to back it.
and why would it only be your shoulders? why wouldnt your legs get longer, why wouldnt your wrists get bigger or your fingers get longer? why would you grow in only the shoulders? it really makes no sense to me.
while theres also no evidence of rib cages getting bigger its more plausible that your lungs would expand them than to say your bones would just decide to grow.
Why would my legs get longer if my hammys/quads got bigger. Your ribcage, and surrounding structure needs to get larger as you gain muscle. I don’t know about you, but I got a lot broader shoulders putting on 70 pounds. And there’s no way I added several inches onto my delts. And there’s no way puberty in and itself is solely responsible.[/quote]
i dont know why theyd get longer, i dont think they would. but why would your shoulders get wider from deadlifting? my forearms got bigger from holding heavy weights. my bone didnt increase the muscle just got bigger. i dont know why a muscle would get bigger im not an orthopedic doctor but i cant seem to think of a reason why no bone would ever get bigger but your shoulders why would it be isolated there out of all the bones in your body whats so special about shoulders?
