i need some workouts to get a thicker neck. my gym here in iraq doesnt have any neck machines or the weighted head straps either. what can i do without these to get a some size to my neck
use your hands as weights...press against your head and push against your hands
or hold weights against your head with your hands and lift them
well i look like an idiot but ill try it
well then just use the weights and hold them against your headOriginally Posted by motive
Uh, the neck doesn't really require direct work. Shrugs, deadlifts, stuff like that will help.
You can also use a towel to pull on for resistance vs your hands.
you could take a towel with a short rope to create your own neck strap. Cut towel in half down the middle, roll it to create some padding, tie it off. loop a rope thru then thru the plate and bow tie or whatever knot you want. you have to hold it in place vs comercial neck straps but it worked in 'Nam.
thanks for all the help! i do alot of shrugs, deadlifts, etc... im tryin these that youve shared and to be honest i think it will work for me! thanks
Doing neck bridges will also strengthen the neck which, in turn may lead to a larger neck
agreed - my neck was never than when i was wrestling. bridges, bridges, bridges! i do either sets of 30secs or 15 reps & swap front to back.Originally Posted by Leggo my Ego
