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 them in.
Is there anything that can be done, or do some folks just have larger and more prominent collar bones?
Thanks for any replies.
probably just need to keep working, keep eating, and this will keep you growing.
I may have "Love" on my head, but i have Hate in my heart.
Eat more and do incline dumbell or barbell bench presses. Much emphasis on the eat more part though. Shoot for 3 sets of 10 on the barbell bench.
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 what would be built up over them. I guess I just have to live with it.
How does one shrink 2 inches if you aren't like over 60?
Anyway, not sure if thread is serious or a troll or what, but are you tall and under 150 and you are wondering why your collar bone sticks out? 150 is even under the normal weight for that height, weightlifting aside.

Everyones collar bones show...there isnt a specific muscle that goes over the collar bone so its not like you will ever have a thick slab of lean mass covering them. Yes when you gain weight they will become less prominent just because you are filling out, but at 150lbs you have a long way to go...good luck and keep workin hard

"Fine, if I'm not allowed to light it on fire, can my imaginary friend?"
how the hell you shrink 2 inches???
I'm 61 years old. People can start losing an inch every ten years beginning at age 40.
At my age, extra calories tend to settle around the middle. I'm adjusting my intake of everything--calories, fat, and carbs--as I see my waist get fatter or thinner. I'm trying to consume more without it going to the middle.
I've increased my workouts from every other day to a 3 day split with one day off, then 3 on again. I've noticed that's burning more.
20 years ago I ate 3,000 to 6,000 calories a day and didn't really gain weight. Age makes a difference.
It doesn't sound like the area around the collarbones would fill in before I got a big beer gut again.
The way I see it once your chest is built up enough below the collar bone it should appear to be sticking out less
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.
I'll just keep at it.
As for shoulder blades, they used to stick out, but now there's muscle around them, so they're not very prominent.
