    weird neck feelings


    Recently I've been having these weird feelings in my neck when I workout, especially when doing military presses. My neck feels like it's very tight and I feel pressure at the back of my head where my neck and skull meet. I've also been waking up with stiff legs, even If I haven't worked out at all the day before.

    sounds like you're flexing your neck/jawline when doing heavy weights. try and loosen this, relax your neck, or look up to help flex your erectors. i imagine you have the same issue doing chins.

    I never go behind the head. I've been waking up with leg stiffness.

    I had that same issue. I did what suncloud recommends above as well as relaxed my spine while doing shoulders. If you do your reps slow then you will be able to feel it coming on. Just relax those muscles and you should be fine
