Nice job overall.
One suggestion: you might re-evaluate the size of the breasts/pecs. When a person is stretched out like that, the breasts/pecs usually don't hang like you have them hanging, but rather their mass is smaller/more spead out.

gotta agree with the previous comment. Remember the actual cause of death in crucifixion was from suffocation..with the arms pulled so abruptly upward and the weight of the body stretching the victim out, it made it almost impossible to lift the diaphragm and inflate the lungs...so the subject suffocated slowly as the muscles in the torso tired..that is if shock didn't getcha first...the pectorals would be stretched flat and the ribcage pulled upward...if you keep that mechanism in mind you seem to already have the tools you need to display musculature...
(is my medical background showing...?)
