Widening the lats, is another example. And so on.

Not saying that this exercise will do that for sure, however. Not an area of expertise I can claim as my own. Just (quite possibly misinterpreted or otherwise inaccurate) observations, is all I have to go on at this stage. And even if they've "worked" for me, that's just me. Who knows whether/how it might apply to any given lifter.
Interesting, I was thinking along those lines. Helps with creating the "illusion of big".

Thanks for the quick reply

I kind of know what you mean, but on the other hand, embiggening (lol) IS actually making something bigger for reals, so...

As in the case of lats, say, wider lats literally can make your mid-upper torso, well, wider. Therefore bigger. Same goes for thickness of various muscles, and so forth.

Cool

Presumably, if one could expand his rib cage farther, he could breath deeper...

Pearl Divers and Sherpas are both said to have "Thick Barreled Chests".

Is this observation reliable?

Is the huge ribcage a result of Free Diving for Pearls or Carrying Large Loads at High Altitude?

Or do these fields of endeavor simply select for those who already have that characteristic?

Actually though, until I read the question, I took it as an Unexamined Primary, that everyone would want a bigger chest, were it possible.

Mmm, I was always told I had a huge rib cage for my size. Most tailors give me a weird look and say "never seen proportions like this".

Anyway, I do pull overs sometimes, just for the stretch feeling and I feel its kind of soothing.
