Just curious due to my ceaseless pursuit of frauding genetic perfection. I have a decently wide clavicles, good height, and decent fat distribution, but my hips are wider than I’d like them to be. They aren’t birthing hips by any means, and they wouldn’t look out of place on a man with a built upper body, but due to my ectomorphic small ribcage of peace, it affects my overall aesthetics. Is there any way to increase the overall size of my torso without getting fat, like would deadlifts work to add significant size there (specifically width) or is that a meme? Should I just blast GH and acquire ideal gut? I wouldn’t mind looking kind of boxy, just straight up and down, especially due to my frame being acceptable enough to still give me something of a v-taper at that point.

there's no such thing as "ribcagemaxxing", you're stuck with what you have

why run a race when it's rigged and you're fixed in last

I understand that increasing the size of the ribcage isn’t feasible, I’m referring to frauding it  through muscle development

Don't deadlift.

Seriously, don't.

It is an aesthetic killer. It develops your Obliques, which is a muscle group you want to develop as little as possible, because it thickens your waist.

What you're looking for is lower lat development. And even though I know all of the gym monkeys want to tell you to never touch a machine, machines are superior for back development. There is NO barbell exercise that can target only your back as well as machines. And that includes the cable pull down machine. The cable variant is inferior to the super common Life Fitness lat pulldown machines like this

Beyond that are ones like this

And this

I do zero free weight exercises for lats, and I don't recommend them. Yes, things like squats will use your lats, but they are not primarily lat exercises.

I only do free weights for traps and rear delts. Not for lats.

Your school gym should have some. I also highly suggest Planet Fitness specifically because they have better back machines than 90% of bro gyms. Plus your black cards lets you bring a guest+massage chairs. Handy for gym dates.

Fuck time to rewrite my trainings plan 
Do you recommend to do squats? 
And what else I can do to compensate for not doing deadlifts?

Rack pulls do most of the upper body work, while being nicer on your lower back and obliques. Even Romanian deadlifts will be easier.

Squats are good. They will strengthen your obliques a little, but I doubt it would even add 1/2" to your waist. They're worth it. Beware of almost any ab program though. They almost universally suggest oblique work, which looks terrible unless you're naked and 8% body fat.

For aesthetics? No. You can over train your lower back. Things like squats will develop your lower back by plenty.

Now for health reasons... yeah probably. Your lower back can get weak/incorrectly developed and it causes a lot of problems in old age. But TBH, I know almost nothing about how to fix that. I know you can, but I'm focused on what I need now more than what I need in 20 years.

If you're interested in developing an ideal lower back, find someone on youtube or elsewhere that's a physical therapist and into Tai Chi. They'll have good tips.

Call me crazy but that’s kind of what I want

As it stands, my medium hips and tiny waist give me a slight hourglass shape, looks feminine af. I’d rather thicken my waist and look boxy than have an hourglass figure lol

Good advice on the back machines, preaching truth there

How is your split looking like? Right now I am doing upper/lower 4x Peer week 
With upper a,upper b, lower a, lower b

So I do squats at lower a and deadlifts at lower b
