My Chest and Pectus Carinatum

First off I will say that I do not feel in anyway that this condition is a "problem". Growing up I was always very athletic. Got into martial arts, played sports and naturally got into fitness. As you can see from my photos taken after my chest and shoulder workout on 6/22/2018 that my chest isn't what you would consider a "normal" chest. You see I have a (I hate using this term) chest condition called "Pectus Carinatum". Now Pectus Carinatum is a physical malformation of the chest characterized by a protrusion of the sternum and in most cases it also includes protrusion of the ribs as well.

I do not have a severe case but I get a lot of questions about it from friends, people online and other people I meet at the gym so I thought I would take sometime to express how I deal with this "condition".

As I've already explained this "condition" hasnt been a problem for me. At least I think so. However I do not sleep on my chest at all. Why? because when I do I usually wake up gasping for air. Firstly, I do not have sleep apnea. In addition, I've seen a few doctors on this and it's possible but not probable that Pectus carinatum is the cause of this. As a matter of fact "surprisingly" that's a common thing among most people. I am not going to sit here and "diagnose" your condition or tell you what to do and how to deal with it. I will always tell you "Go see a doctor!". I am not qualified to tell you how to deal with your condition (that is if you have Pectus carinatum as well). I can only tell you what I do.

So you're probably wondering how do I work on my chest and shoulders. I do a variety of exercises to work these muscle groups. I don't stick with the same routine as I mix things up with different workouts that focus on growing the muscles I want to grow that day. Currently, I have posted a few videos on social media (mostly Facebook and Instagram) of my workouts so you can see what I do. 

Here's one video as an example:


If you're serious about fitness I recommend AthleanX as a resource (they also provide a bodyweight program which requires no bars or anything just the floor) Then there's also ThenX which is purely calisthenics. (I wish they had an affiliate program for how much I refer to them but sadly they don't lol, but that's ok)

Some people have asked me, "Because of your abnormality (I hate that word in reference to this) what exercises are harder for you to perform?". First, there are ALWAYS going to be exercises you can perform easier than others. The first person that asked me this was back in middle school and at the time I thought, "That guy's a dick", but it actually became a common question even upto in my 20's. So yes there are exercises I can do easier than others. As for my chest I've said this before and I'll say it again I look at it or view it as a problem. I mean hell I still look good and work hard on having a strong physical and athletic body. But to answer your problem. For my chest one exercise that used to be very difficult was dips. It got a lot easier over the years because I ended up doing them frequently to build my chest, even though I hated them at first but ended up liking them. That's why I often times work on my weaknesses more than my strengths so I can build those (of course I do not ignore my strengths). 

I hope I've answered anyones questions about my chest and if you want to learn more about Pectus Carinatum. I recommend viewing this Wikipedia article : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pectus_c…
