Neck training
« on: December 13, 2023, 07:51:46 AM »
after a neck injury some years back i always try to train my neck directly & i stretch it. Most people do not need direct training as the neck is trained with other movements but like say calves & Forearms why not train it?

I remember reading about the Barbarian Brothers at Goldīs Gym pulling cars using their necks

I originally used a the old helmet as pictured. It did a great job.

 Now I use this four way neck machine in my basement.

 A cheap effective solution is the apparatus in the link I'm putting in here.

 Having a built body and a skinny neck or soft looking neck is a bad look. Having a built neck makes you look masculine.  If you want to train the neck on the cheap just fold up a towel and put a plate on your forehead lying on a bench and do neck curls. Get a neck strap off amazon and while sitting do neck extensions with a plate connected to the chain. For the sides you can use hand pressure and even twists resisting your hands.

That Helmet looks wicked but i use a neck harness & as you wrote plate wrapped in a towel lying face up off a bench.
I have also tried other methods such as bands but a weight plate works fine.
In the Gyms here i have never seen a direct neck machine but in the USA American Football is a sport where a powerful neck is important also wrestling so you have these machines.
Having said that on German TV we are now getting more American football shown.
