The experience-based guide to overcoming pectus excavatum. Learn all about PE, treatment options, and exercise and nutrition recommendations.
There is no known way to fix pectus excavatum through exercise alone. In fact, in certain cases, various forms of exercise may be inappropriate for individuals with Pectus Excavatum. Strength training and bodybuilding style exercises can be used to improve posture, increase full-body strength, and improve physical appearance. They cannot, however, correct the chest deformity on their own. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.
Strength training used in conjunction with vacuum bell therapy is quite promising, especially in younger users, however, research is still very limited at this time.
In severe cases, where medically necessary, pectus can be corrected through surgery. Strength training, stretching, and breathing training can be incredibly beneficial in the preparation and recovery process. We focus on providing meaningful resources to the people who follow in our footsteps.

My name is Kyle Blandford. I'm the Pectus Warriors Head Coach and Owner of HypertroFit. I was born with Pectus Excavatum and never really knew what it was for the longest time. I experienced my fair share of ridicule through middle and high school for the shape of my chest and eventually underwent the Nuss procedure as an 18-year-old. I had two titanium bars in place under my sternum for over 7 years and have since had them removed. Chances are if you've experienced something pectus-related or surgery-related, I've been there myself. It can be incredibly challenging to be confident in the way you look with pectus excavatum and that is exactly why I've devoted so much time and effort to working with individuals just like me.
While the majority of sound training and nutrition advice still applies to individuals with pectus excavatum, there are special considerations that should be made, particularly in the case of exercise selection, frequency, and volume.
Through a decade of personal experience and having worked with hundreds of clients all over the country, we've developed a comprehensive strategy for pectus excavatum specific training for each phase of the journey.
