When did your frame fill out?

Im quite tall (6'2) and have had a lot of growth in height over the years.
However, my upper body still has that childish look to it. My chest is not very broad like a grown man, my ribs are pretty narrow, which makes my hips look really wide.

When did your upper body grow wider, to look like a man?

No one can give you an exact answer as it is entirely down to your genetics, nothing else.
At 6"2 it's going to take a lot longer than someone who's a great deal smaller; but you'll look better in the long run.

what is filling out?
Post a photo. I bet there's nothing wrong with your bone structure, you're just thin and weak.
"filling out" basically means putting on either muscle or fat. In most peoples' cases, it's obviously fat. Bone structure will more or less remain the same

I have tiny wrists, a narrow ribcage and narrower clavicles than most people my age.

There are people who are weaker than me who look much stronger, because they have broader shoulders, a wider ribcage and a larger bone structure.
There's really not much you can do about bone structure and if you have a small frame, I'm sorry but that's just how it is. I'm sure most people would like to change at least one aspect of their bone structure. For the most part bar major accidents/malnutrition/no excercise as a child etc it's pretty much genetic

How do you know they are weaker than you? Seriously mate, let us give you some honest advice based on a photo. I bet you'll be reassured more than anything.

Remind us, what's your height and weight?

Urgh, ive explained too many times why im so weak and skinny in my posts in other threads.

Bench press: 48KG 5x5
Barbell row: 54KG 5x5
Military press: 43KG 5x5

I cant squat or deadlift yet.
You're making excuses because you're a skinny ****** who doesn't even lift lol

How can your military press only be 5kg less than your bench?

Why can't you squat or deadlift? Scoliosis? Broken ankles?

As for lifting heavier than bigger looking guys, I don't buy it. Your numbers are really low, or you're being dishonest about which lifts/rep ranges you're comparing.

Anyone heard of "Genetics"? it's abundantly clear that despite his height, his general physique is petite. For someone who is genetically petite, it will takes YEARS of diet and training to bulk, not unless you want to pump yourself full of T, and destroy your body. It really is pointless asking what his work-out plan consists of because everyone is different in relation to building muscle.
