Barbell/Dumbell Pullover

A great weight exercise to improve your pectus excavtum is the dumbbell pullover or barbell pullover. This exercise is great at strengthening chest muscles aswell as getting a great expansion in the rib cage and helps push that sternum out, and don?t forget to warm before any short of weight exercise and take it easy.

The way to do this exercise at home is to either use a simple weight bench or lie down on the floor with a pillow placed behind your back around where your sternum sinks to give your back a slight arc. This helps emphasize pressure on the sunken sternum area.
