I have a massive rib cage, and that it is going to take years to get pecs big enough to start hanging over the top of it! I feel like I'm deformed!

Yea sorry!
Upper chest is coming along nicely, but still no definition in the lower chest! I can feel the ridges down there, still too much fat though. But still only sticking out about a cm past my rib cage!

It's the nipple ring. It's throwing off your ribcages' center of balance.

Maybe I should get the other side done to balance it out!

There's nothing wrong with having a massive rib cage Arnold and Lou had one I'd love to have one myself.

Not to be insulting, but you really don't. It looks entirely normal.

Will it take years to get good pec development? Hate to be a wet blanket, but quite possibly. But you may be amazed at the difference in appearance by dropping fat significantly.

I think mine is bigger than yours.... seriously.

People often mistake it for a pot belly it sticks out so much. I'd like to say it's like Arnold's and Lou's... but I don't have the heaps of muscle overlaying it right now... so it's just a big, ugly ribcage.

I always felt the same way about my rib cage, but found that it shrank a lot after I dropped fat. But even still, the way my shirts hang on me, I lose the "V" shape and it looks like I have a gut. I have found that "fitted shirts" help with that.

Also, it's about perspective. As my body fat perecentage dropped, my chest "popped out" more which made the contrast between the ribs and the chest greater. So just keep at the plan.

Finally, focus on oblique and ab work. It pulls the rib cage in.

I don't see anything massive about your rib cage.

If you had a massive rib cage it would be a asset not a hindrance.

Don't get stressed about the little things just keep working, and it will happen for you, I think it is safe to say it is 50-100 workouts out though and not 2-3, so don't let that bother you, or get uptight about it.

DA FCK!!!

I'm really getting tired of posts like this....

http://forum.bodybuilding.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=4859603&d=1347053841


massive??

and a freakin' nipple ring?

if that is the way you evaluate you yourself, you are right: you will never get anything to match what you have imagined in your mind....

and you know what the sad thing is? there is nothing wrong the way you look IF YOU DIDN'T MAKE THAT RIDICULOUS CLAIM...

you have a great foundation....just keep training and working hard....body parts that are ahead of other ones, do NOT keep growing indefinitely...they will reach a peak and then the others will catch up.

Mmm-mmmm. That is a tasty burger. Vincent, ever have a Big Kahuna Burger?

Wanna bite? They're real tasty.

Well, if you like burgers give 'em a try sometime. I can't usually get 'em myself because my girlfriend's a vegitarian which pretty much makes me a vegitarian. But I do love the taste of a good burger. Mm-mm-mm. You know what they call a Quarter Pounder with cheese in France?

Tell 'em, Vincent.

A Royale with cheese! You know why they call it that?

Check out the big brain on Brett! You're a smart mother****er. That's right. The metric system. What's in this?

Sprite, good. You mind if I have some of your tasty beverage to wash this down?

Ah, hit the spot.


OP, lift big to fill in your big ribcage.

A massive rib cage? No. If you did it would be an advantage IMO.

I have the same (only worse than yours) problem... Shirts don't fit right on me. I have to use the fitted kind, otherwise it looks like I have a beer belly. It also makes my legs appear thinner/smaller than normal. I do find that getting leaner helps with the problem...

Best advice I can give you is to get rid of the nipple ring. Men should not be piercing their nipples.

No matter how wide my chest gets or how thin my waist gets. My rib cage will always make me look like a beer keg...

^^^ This. Of course I knew that would be the case before I opened the thread. Whenever I read words like massive, huge or ripped, I expect that there will be no avi or pictures...


OK... I see the updated pic. I'm not seeing anything that I would call massive.

That's what she said??

OP it doesn't look out of the ordinary. I'd bet if you lost some Lbs it would appear smaller.

dude
if your picture requires an arrow so we know what to look for, then there is nothing to see

I am puzzled by the question. It is what it is and nobody on bb.com can change it. Pics look normal, but muscle mass is not high enough. None of the big boys responding got that way in a short period of time, so relax and enjoy the process.
