Hello everyone, I’m seeking a definitive answer to a curious possibility. I’ve come across some information that deals on the process of widening one’s rib cage through various techniques and exercises. Allegedly many classic era bodybuilders use the technique to push their v tapered torsos even more and have had success with it.
The process is ultimately predicated on the malleable cartilage around the sternum and stretching them outwards. However the catch is that that at a certain age, most mens sternum cartilage is beginning to harden. One source says it begins at 20s while another says 30s. The confusion im having is exactly what age it begins to happen. Either way if you’re not a teenager you’ll begin to get diminishing returns with these exercising though it supposedly can be done just significantly harder
What are these exercises and how can I use them to achieve this?
Is there anyone out there familiar? Has anyone had success or am I wasting my time and is it too late for me in early 20s? Any insight I’d appreciate.
