Hi Dr. Darden! I’m a big fan of reading about old-school bodybuilding techniques, and I very much enjoyed your article on ribcage expansion https://www.t-nation.com/training/ribcage-expansion-fact-or-fiction. It got me thinking about a few questions related to the topic:
Is there any truth to the idea that one can also widen the shoulder girdle, for example by hanging from a bar with a very wide grip etc? If not possible in the general population, does it work for teenagers?
In general, do you have any tips for what teenagers can do to take advantage of their age and maximise their results, for example focusing on ribcage expansion?
Finally, regarding ribcage expansion with pullovers, what sort of volume and frequency do you recommend to get the best results?
