Every person should train their neck for multiple reasons but men should absolutely never skip neck work!
Neck Training: a Forgotten Necessity
I am not sure why neck training isn’t too well known or popular among people/fitness enthusiasts of today but it is very important and was a movement many old school bodybuilders such as Steve Reeves, John Grimek, Clarence Ross, Reg Park, Alan Stephan would perform.
Why you Should Train your Neck
The two main reasons you should look into training your neck are from a physique perspective, and a health and safety measure.
Strong Neck for Health and Safety
Having a strong neck assists in the protection of whiplash and can help prevent concussions and gives you a greater ability to resist head and neck injuries.
On top of preventing head injuries, a strong neck can help eliminate headaches.
Work the Neck for Aesthetic Beauty, Strength and Power
A thick strong neck represents power and strength among the whole physique. Too skinny a neck can really ruin the overall appearance and lessen the impact of the physique which is something that isn’t desirable when the purpose of sculpting the physique is through the importance of ratios, proportions, balance and symmetry. Each muscle is important to sculpt and develop.
