Neck training can seem scary. But don't let that stop you from reaping the benefits! Here's why and how.
Direct neck training is pivotal to athletes in any contact sport. It can improve upper body strength, correct bad posture, and it can even reduce the severity and risk of concussions by improving neck girth.
In short it's a must.
However direct neck training is often overlooked in most programs. Are you nervous or unsure of how to start?
It is true that the neck is a fragile and delicate part of our anatomy. So much the more we should strengthen it properly.
Before we get in to the specifics of direct neck training, there are some things to be mindful of.
Be careful! And listen to your body at all times. Neck muscles respond very quickly. Don’t train neck with the same volume and intensity as chest or legs. With neck training less is more. So don’t overdue it. If something hurts Stop.
Even if you do 1 set of 8-20 reps every 3-4 weeks you will gain a lot in return.
