    And actually Piz, instead of hanging upside down doing inverted lateral raises (that'll work more lats than intercostals) hang upside down and do inverted dumbbell presses. At least, that's what Arnold says.

    Do you guys mean hanging upside down, grabbing a pair of dumbells on the floor, and then pulling them upwards to my shoulders?

    Or hanging upside down, grabbing a pair of dumbells on the floor, lifting them to my chest, then pressing them upwards to my waist?

    Um, personally I was just semi-joking. Hence the stupid sized words.

    How long do these things take to heal? I only really started the breathing exercises a couple days ago. Had some SLIGHT discomfort working out chest today.

    I was in the elevator by myself later on and threw a punch. Pain still.
    But now, couple hours later I feel pretty fine.

    I got smashed in the ribs couple times two Tues ago.

    Cross bench pullovers breathe in as you lower the weight, breathe out as you lift.

    Side situps on a roman chair with a dumbbell or plate held behind your head works them also.

    Get some gravity boots and hang upside down and do twisting situps and sideways situps.

    Get a fat girl to sit on you and try to breathe.

    So I've been trying a couple of these exercises, most of them being based on some sort of chest cavity expansion or another. The toughest ones to do were the ones where you have to hang upside down. The safest place I could find to do them was on a decline board, leaned up against the wall. Not perfect, but better than nothing. Hanging upside down did a good job of stretching out my ribs, but I still couldn't really contract my intercostal muscles. I also tried a couple of these exercises where you lean over a bench to expand your rib cage. For me, these were all a disaster. Although they would expand the front of my rib cage, they tended to compress the back of my rib cage where I have all my problems.

    Ah, you didn't specify that.

    You'd have to do it from the side I think then, to target each side...angled slightly to maximize load on the lats/back.

    I'm having the same problem on my left side. I'll let you know.

    Sorry about that, I should have been more clear about things. So you have the same problem? On the same side as me, the left side? Geeze, must be a Toronto thing, dammit. I think I remember PizDoff telling me that his ribs were bothering him as well.
