Default Dumbbell pullovers good for rib cage expansion?

Are dumbbell pullovers good for rib cage expansion or is this a myth?

The old timers believed in them. You look at most of the routines from 50 years ago or longer and then almost all include pullovers following squats. I personally love them following hard squats. May not expand my rib cage, but I sure feel better after doing them.

I have heard two things...

1.) overtime they will expand the rib cage

&

2.) it is a myth beccause you can not make the rib cage expand

technically you can expand up to the age of 25-26 by stretching cartilage, but no studies to back it up so who knows

Except for the first course of The Markberry Barbell Courses where you did the pullover with a barbell then did the squat next and I think the pullover was a few exercises later in the first of the old Milo Barbell Courses but i'm not for sure i'd have to go did my copy out.

Ive do them quite often, never heard about them being in correlation with squats, I usually preform them on chest day, I feel it most in my upper chest, lats, and obliques. I usually go pretty heavy and get a good expansion of the ribcage. I personally believe they help widen the ribs, nothing extreme, but I usually feel muscle hypertrophy when doing them.

I tried them a few times in my early 20's, but never after squats.

The only source I had when I started was Muscle & Fitness and Flex. Pretty much the same routine week after week in a different package.
