Hey guys, sorry if this topic may have been covered before, but my ‘search’ function ain’t working, so here goes:
Do any of you train your necks, and if so, what is the best way of doing it that brings more results and increases thickness?
I’ve seen a lot of guys that look stupid with big upper bodies and scrawny necks, and I don’t want to be one of them. The neck is an important body part, but also I feel that it is dangerous to work because all the important cervical vertebrae are there, which is the link between head and body. It can easily be injured if trained incorrectly. Right now I’m in a world of pain due to a neck and trapezius injury which tends to recur a lot, and it’s causing throbbing headaches as well. I feel that my neck is my weakest link, but I still want to train, thicken and strengthen it. It supposedly builds up fast, but mine doesn’t seem to build fast at all.
So what’s your advice on the neck? I don’t have access to a nautilus 4-way machine (none of the gyms in my whole city have one), I find a head harness awkward and painful to use, and using the hands for isometric exercises feel weird and I’m not sure if they work.
