    You can do neck exercises on the hamstring machine. You can also put plates on your forehead/behind the head. If your gonna be doing neck curls, do light weights high reps.

    Deadlifts/rack pulls also make the neck thick and strong. But you gotta move decent weight to get decent size.

    I can vouch for using plates on the forehead/behind the head - definitely made my neck more firm, and thickened it out a little....but as mentioned use low weight/high reps or you'll strain your neck.
