My husband is a competitive cyclist, with a typical cyclist build - long, lean, & not muscular except for his legs. Yesterday on his mountain bike in the woods he went over the handlebars & smashed his head & face into some rocks. His helmet saved his life. Now he has a concussion & severe whiplash.
I’ve only been really lifting for a couple months, but it seems to me that if he had more muscle on his neck and shoulders he would have more protection in a situation like this. Am I correct? If so, what exercises should be be doing? Seeing him in the hospital strapped to that board scared the hell out of me - I don’t ever want to do that again.
