There really isn't heavy muscle coverage over the rib area. To Limit the effect of skin and bones look concentrate on lats (pull downs, pull ups) and chest. Look at pro bodybuilders, even their ribs show when put into an arms overhead anatomical position.

Re: muscle on rib area

I was going to say the same thing as chappyboy. You can see bodybuilder's ribs in the front, I wouldn't say so much on their back. working you lats will definately help.
