    Overlap Of Form and Anatomy question

    hey everyone, I've found the community to be a very helpful resource so i have come in search of your wisdom once again !

    there's one part of anatomy that im having trouble wrapping my head around and understanding. basically its the overlap of forms that happens around the Lat, Oblique and rib cage area, more dominate on females ( I think ), I'm having trouble understanding why the overlap is actually occurring.

    From what i can see it is either the Lat Muscle standing out wider then the oblique, Or is it caused by the edge of the rib cage. I understand this may be a very obvious question but the quicker i can ask the quicker i can understand and move foward
    thank you everyone

    The latissimus wraps around the lower angle of the scapula, which rotates out towards the sides of the rib cage when the arm is raised like that; you seem to be indicating the bulge in the latissimus caused by that action.

    I think it is the latissimus dorsi, which completely covers the back of the rib cage there. Note that the ribcage is completely covered by muscles, so with the exception of the sternum, it will not be visible...

    Thank you Briggsy i am still coming down to look at ashtons, I wont be able to do the week course but i am able to come down to Sydney for 2 days, so i will come by and look at the area and the student accommodation possibilities. hopefully all within the next fortnight, and trying to aim around days you will be teaching.

    Thank you again

    JerryActric,

    Where did you get the figure pose. It looks like there is another figure next to it. They look like they're top quality.
