The Top 5 Best Neck Exercises

Posted Feb 15 2011 7:14am

Next to forearm training in muscles being neglected, neck training is next in line. Actually, I would say that people neglect neck training more than anything else. Many people have never even heard of it or would even know what to do.

The neck really is an important muscle. Think about it; unless you are wearing a turtle neck, everyone will see your neck. It can distinguish you from a bodybuilder to just a normal person.

Although doing traps exercises such as shrugs and deadlifts will assist you in getting a more muscular neck, there are some other exercises that you can perform that help. Everyone is different, so I suggest that you experiment with all of these to see what makes you grow the most. From there, you should be able to change up your training to whatever suits you the best.

The sternocleidomastoid muscles are the side muscles that run the length of the neck. These give the neck the appearance of width. The lower part of the sternocleidomastoid ties into the inner trapezius and provides muscle density directly above the clavicle bone.

The sternocleidomastoid muscles help with cervical vertebra flexion which allows the upper spine to bend and flex. This is obviously very important. The sternocleidomastoid also helps with all aspects of head movement. Having a muscular neck will also help with heavy compound movements such as squats in terms of stabilizing the bar.

To integrate these exercises into your regular workout routine, choose one neck exercise to perform at the end of a back workout, and use shrugs somewhere in the middle of back workout. Dedicate a couple months to prioritizing your neck development and you will see changes pretty quick. Consider alternating neck isolation exercises every 3 weeks to shock the neck into new growth.
