#13 – The Internal Frame, Ribcage Expansion and Vital Energy

August 26, 2023 by VAHVA Fitness

Eero and Samuli discuss the secrets of old school bodybuilding: developing the internal frame, ribcage expansion and the vast differences between old school and modern bodybuilding.

During the eras of old school bodybuilding, people believed that building up your ribcage and the internal frame were the keys to growth and progress.

After learning Qigong and understanding the body on a deeper level, we also believe the internal frame is one of the keys to building your healthiest, strongest and most vital body.

Very few people in the world know how to do it correctly and most people do not understand these methods because it requires a high level of body intelligence to do so. 


In practice, you are utilising your breath, high volume and high intensity to create high metabolic stress to your body which then creates a large growth impulse in the body.

Expansion of the ribcage also promotes healthy development of your breathing apparatus and upper body / spine mobility. This creates a strong and vital posture which has positive hormonal implications and most importantly it allows your physique to stand out.

Today, this is a lost art. Instead of building the frame and expanding the ribcage, the modern bodybuilders and fitness gurus use a cocktail of different drugs and injections to produce the hormonal profiles and muscle mass they are after.

If you are a natural, the old school bodybuilding offers a healthy way to maximise your potential without needing to destroy your body internally as the modern bodybuilders do.

This way of training has amazing benefits even if you don’t care about big muscles.  You are ultimately just building a strong frame, high breathing capacity and a healthy & vibrant body.
