In brief: Nothing increases,bu

Your rib cage does not increase in size, per se, what happens is that your maximal chest expansion will increase, because your ribs will move better at there spinous attachment! aerobic activities that increase maximal ventilatory capacity work best, at 30m or more cycles.
Many sporting activities will do this!
