    How thick is your neck?


    I took a measurement of my neck this morning. I was quite surprised, it was only 14.25 inches around!!

    How thick is your neck?

    High school wrestling + football put a good amount of size on it. But yeah I think genetics and bodyweight are the big factors.

    18" or a little more. If you have a big neck go see a sleep doctor if you are having sleep issues. Might be at risk for sleep apnea.

    I can testify to this. If you look at the sleep apnea chart two of the 3 biggest factors that make it likely for you to get sleep apnea is 1. a big neck and 2. being male.

    About 20 give or take rt now. As far as the sleep apnea thing... Most guys with big neck are morbily obese.... That's why statistically big neck=sleep apnea. Have a big muscular neck and its not a problem.
    When you leave this world, will it be a better place because you were here?

    20.5" neck currently. I gotta keep it big cause Im in the military and over on my weight (max weight 186, current weight 215), so I get body fat tested. Waist circumference minus neck circumference = vale. Take that value, bounce it off your height and you get your BF%. Rudimentary I know; but it keeps me at around 15% according to them, so I get left alone being "over weight". Also, I dont have any problems sleeping.

    He should have given the measurement in metric if he wanted to be more scientifically accurate.
