Neck nods - Here's an old boxer's trick to help build neck strength and endurance. The old-timers swear this will help you take a punch..give it a try. Lie flat on your back with legs straight, and hands at your side. Now "nod" your head until your chin touches your upper chest. Return your head to the mat, and repeat continously. Try to do 50 of these and see how you feel. For a harder challenge, nod for 50 reps, and then hold your head in the "up position" and begin turning your head from left to right at a slow but steady rate. Do these for 50. When you can nod for 100 you're getting some strength.


This thing really starts burning quick!!!!!

I always did these laying flat on a table with my shoulders right to the edge of the table, so that your head is off of he table. All the way back and all the way up. 3 minutes or one round.

Then it was side to side, for another 3. The stuff will burn but it will do wonders for your neck...........Rockin'

Yeah, I just got it off a website and I did like 35 of 'em and I could already feel the burn.

The one you do is definately worth a try....that one must be extra effective, since you have no chance to relax.
