    As has already been said, see a doctor.

    Meanwhile, put an ice pack on the shoulder to get...

    Actually, I'm building muscle that shows. My chest is much more defined. What looks odd are the "holes" or low spots between the collar bones.

    Thanks for the reply, 2kool. I'm 5'11" (used to be 6'1"), and now weigh a bit under 150, down from 180 when I was drinking a lot of beer.

    I don't feel any muscle over the bones, so I don't know...
  5. Chest is growing (slowly) but collar bones still sticking out

    I've been working on my chest as much as possible, and I'm finally seeing results in the middle and lower part. My collar bones still protrude quite a bit (I'm skinny), and nothing I do seems to fill...

    I'm new here, and so I know I have to tread lightly.

    That said, as an alcoholic of some 40 years who's been sober for 3 1/2 years, I recognize the OP's question. I've seen it on countless forums,...

    That's an interesting diet. What is the idea behind alternating high fat and high carbs? I've never heard of that before.

    What is a "split"?

    I hope nobody minds a dumb question: just what exactly is a "split"? I thought a three day split, for example, was splitting a week into 3 days at the gym, but it's apparently something else.

    RhodeHouse, I do it for me. Nobody else sees me with my shirt off. I want to keep stuff that nature is making sag from sagging. I just want to feel good about my body, even as my face gets more...

  18. Really hard gainer, but want to lose the last bit of ab flab

    I'm 61 now, and was the classic ectomorph until the last few years. I could eat 13 plates of fish and not gain weight.
