The Simple Yet Most Powerful of Neck Exercises
One area that goes greatly unaddressed is the neck.
Quite a bit of time is focused on large muscle groups…
But not enough time is focused on an area that gets progressively worse as age sets in.
The neck is used and abused every day, so why not train it just as much as any other body part.
Here is a simple neck stretch that you can use:
How to Do the Neck Stretch
- Grasp your hands behind your back, if you are able, reach even further to hold onto your forearms.
- Perform this movement slowly!
- Look up and raise your chin up as high as you can and hold.
- Look down and drive the crown of your head as high as you can.
- Bring your head back to neutral.
- Slowly turn your chin left and hold.
- Then turn to the right and hold.
- Each hold should last no more than 30 seconds.
- Do this movement twice in each position.
