How Do I Get My Collarbone To Show?


I weight about 115 pounds and lift twice a week. I have asked about a million trainers, people...everyone. I cannot for the life of me get my collarbone to show. I don't want to look weak and "boney" but... I have broad shoulders and I just feel that my upper body is WAY to big for my body. What excercises can I do to change this??? Is it possible to make my collarbone stick out farther???

Well....to emphasize ANY bone it's a matter of lowering bodyfat. But without knowing anything about you, your workout routine, your height/weight etc, I don't really know what to recommend.

I agree. With the exception of losing bodyfat, its primarily just genetics.

Hi bridetobe,

Genetics certainly plays a role. If you are genetically predisposed to be broad shouldered and hold weight up top it's harder. However, losing bodyfat will make a difference in getting the collar bone to show. Losing body fat is done through good nutrition and a solid exercise plan. No specific exercises will help unfortunately, because our bodies don't lose fat b ased on what area of the body we are exercising.
