Bill, I must admit I have googled "what the bone is going on"..!! :)
English is not my mother tongue, would you tell me what you mean by that?

I did not want to say what the f*ck is going on.

Bone = osso

I mean what did you do to make your bones be that pronounced, it's giving me the chills.

ah ok!
I lift up and forward my shoulders and put tension in the neck and all the muscles of the shoulders and chest. Then I emphasized it in post production.
My bones are naturally quite pronounced, also in the hands and wrists, so it was easy.
