I'm dieting and my abs are starting to show which is great, but my rib cage is getting bonier as the fat is coming off. What muscles do I need to build up to put some meat on this area?

The serratus is most relevant to your question, but being lean might cause your ribs to show if you aren't extremely muscular.

That said, this could well be a posture issue as well. Or maybe you have a big ribcage. Or possibly you're just a whiner. :)

LOL

Guilty as charged. I'm going to try and beef up my serratus muscles. I used to overhead press many years ago. I think working them back in will help with this area.

Thanks vermonter!
