    Expanding your rib cage? Working Ligaments?

    Both of these concepts are discussed in a recent book I read. My question is, is there excercises for all the ligaments? What about more excercises for ribcage expansion? Besides breathing squats.

    why would you want to expand your ribcage?

    Here's an article that addresses rib cage expansion: http://www.supremebodybuilding.com/ultimatechest.htm

    It's specifically geared towards body builders. It talks about displaying the chest muscles. Might be what you're looking for though.

    I did a Google search for "rib cage expansion". Google is good.

    Proper posture, not slouching also helps promote growth.
    So stick that chest out, and keep smiling at the ladies!

    Stuart McRobert and the Brawn series goes into some details about ribcage expansion.

    Basically, it supposedly can be done with a few exercises. (despite conventional wisdom saying you can't)

    I've always been suspicious of it though. If your goal is function (which if you are doing MA - it shoudl be), then I wonder if attempting that could open you up for injuries.
