    neck development? - lets see some pics


    A couple of years ago I was behind a guy in the checkout line at the supplement store and this guy had a neck on him I have never forgotten. Not only was his neck big but it was defined and the muscle groups running up the back of his neck to his head were very pronounced. -

    I cannot find (google, yahoo) any pics out there with peoples neck development. Any pics of awesome neck development would be appreciated. -- need some inspiration for my workouts and see tons of other body part.

    Do you mean the actual neck like lineman or brock lessnar or the traps. I'd guess the harness would give the largest neck. I personally already have a large neck so I would never try and make it larger. If you mean traps I found that the best thing is power shrugs. Basically you use your back to get a little momentum and then hold at the top for a one second count. I did these for 3 weeks instead of regular shrugs and saw very noticable improvements.

    Back in high school, we had a "neck machine". I haven't specifically trained the neck since... and it seems pretty beefy. IIRC ~18"

    I wish I had a big neck...I think this is another one of those genetic things, though. Kind of like calves and forearms.

    18.5" and I am absolutely not satisfied with it. It seems just about parallel my arm development though, as do my calves, so I probably can't raise it too far without gaining on the others as well.

    This thread inspired me to start working it out directly though, which I did last night and am definitely feeling today!

    Pain in the neck eh?

    It has to be genetic... Neither my dad nor my grandpa train their traps or their neck and they both have rather large diameter muscled necks.

    LOL.... I saw a scrawny ass guy at the gym yesterday training neck... He had a leather head harness on connected to the cable weights. Half the people in the gym were pointing and giggling at how messed up it looked this guy pulling the preacher curl seat in the cable rack to work neck. It was all I could do to not laugh myself because of just how messed up that head harness looked on that tiny guy straining to pull 10-20 lbs...

    I have a pretty thick neck from just bodybuilding.

    I joined a new gym that has a neck machine and today before cardio I did the neck machine side to side. A flexible large neck does have benegits like whiplash. turnign your nack really fast.

    Used to do shrugs-not anymore

    Used to hang my neck off of a bench with weight on my head and do neck raises-This is good for boxing as it prevents the neck snapping if you get hit.

    I really dont need a bigger neck and I might as well use the side to side machine before cardio if its their.

    Some people have said that Arnold has too small of a neck. No worries though he made it regardless of what what say

    I agree. Id rather look like Arnold than a mass monster with a gut. No offense to the people that want to look like this. This look is now out and a flatter stomach is now what the judges look for in bodybuilding. Thank God!

    I have unproportional traps compared to the rest of my body. Since I am a powerlifter, that shelf has to be large enough to stabilize heavy squats and stay tight for heavy pulls. Throughout the week I do heavy db rows, high volume db shrugs, high volume face pulls, heavy rack pulls, reverse band deads and lots of rear delt work and all of this combined makes them grow at a very unproportional rate.

    I don't know if you're being serious or not, but that was actually my first thought. I thought it looked rather close to Big Ron's traps and most predominately that puffed out midsection.

    Some people are into the bodybuilding philosophy of proportion and symmetry (which I am too for the most part), however, I think overwhelming traps just make you look beastly, so do out of proportion forearms. Guns look bigger when the forearms are legit and the back looks beastly when the traps are an unavoidable sight.

    Big props to those big traps of yours.

    My traps are unproportional, just the way I like 'em. Traps add impression of upper body size, which comes in handy for the lazier of us

    My neck (ie as the traps end) is ~17.5, back when I was dedicated to lifting it was ~19.5. I contribute that to all the extra blood flow though.

    Oh and I never specifically trained traps, compounds are king imo.
