Hi, my name is Dr. Nina Cherie Franklin, health and wellness expert with, and I'm here at the HF Racquet and Fitness Club in Homewood, Illinois. In this clip I'm going to show you how to build weight around your ribs. Since losing weight is so important to so many people, it's easy to overlook the fact that there are many individuals who actually want to gain weight, especially around the ribcage since this area is visible in individuals who are thin. In order to build weight around your ribs, you need to gain weight by increasing your daily calories and also work on developing muscle tissue around the ribcage. When it comes to your daily calorie intake, focus on increasing your portions of complex carbohydrates in the form of whole grains, vegetables and fruit while also increasing your protein intake in the form of unbattered seafood, skinless poultry, nuts and seeds. When it comes to building muscle around the ribcage, you want to perform a variety of exercises for the chest, back, shoulders as well as the core since these muscles attach to and surround the ribcage. Focus on performing exercises using high loads and low repetitions in order to build up the size of your muscles. Such exercises include the barbell bench press, the close grip lat pull down, the dumbbell shoulder press as well as planks for the core. One more thing, in order to prevent weight loss, minimize the amount of cardio you perform, no more than 30 minutes a day, three days a week. And that is how you build weight around your ribs. This is Dr. Nina Cherie Franklin. Thank you for watching.
