Why You Must Train Back for Pectus Excavatum

Training back with resistance exercises is fundamentally important if you have Pectus Excavatum.


Because people born with Pectus Excavatum commonly have tight chest muscles associated with the indented chest.

These tight chest muscles will pull the shoulders forward and create a kyphotic (rounded forward/hunched) posture. 

This kyphotic posture will exacerbate the cosmetics of Pectus Excavatum by making the indent look deeper and the potbelly appear bigger. 

Therefore correcting this kyphotic posture is a huge part in improving the look of Pectus without surgery. 

How do you fix the posture? You stretch the chest & YOU TRAIN BACK 

Watch this video above to learn more about training back and why it is so important.

I recommend training back with resistance exercises 2-3 times per week. Some of my go to exercises are: 

Face Pulls
Seated rows
Lat Pulldowns
Chin Ups
Barbell/Dumbbell Rows
The Dumbbell Pullover.

All of these exercises will enable you to develop the musculature in your back which will help pull your posture back and make your condition less noticeable.
