    Need to build strong neck...

    What are some good exercises to develop a strong ass neck. I want to actually feel the results after the workout. Any thoughts?

    Some gyms have a neck machine. My old gym had one. Ask the manager.

    Other than that, shrugs are about all you can do.

    If you want to get crazy I was reading in my Arnold Encylopedia of BB and it aid there were a couple of brother who would put some 5,10,and even 25 plates on a chain or nylon rope and wear it as a necklace during their workouts.

    My gym doesn't have any machines for the neck and I don't have a neck strap.
    So what I do is improvise. While laying down on a bench I place a dumbell on my head and procede to go up and down.

    I use a headstrap. It gets the job done.

    Whats an "ass neck"? And why do you want a strong one? Should I be concerned if I dont have a strong one? Damn it, back to the gym. Now, where is that ass neck machine?
    THAT WHICH DOES NOT KILL ME, CERTAINLY MUST MAKE ME STRONGER

    LMAO!!

    a good strong "Ass Neck" is handy for all those time you find yourself pulling your head out of your butt.
    NEVER write a check with your mouth that you can't cash with your ASS!!

    Why the hell would you want to train your neck in the first place? Of all the body parts you could work on that ranks down at the bottom with your tibialis anterior.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    Get a towell and fold it length wise. Then place it on a wall infront of you, and lean forward, placing your forehead on the towell(supporting your body with only your head/neck). Then 'roll' from side to side. If your not strong enough, use your hands for support, and once thats too easy, move to the floor.

    Used to do it for wrestling.. never had a problem, or know anyone that did. Just be sure to use your hands for support if you arent strong enough.
