Hey guys ! New here and new to Powerlifting. One thing that I've noticed quite a bit about Powerlifters is the damn size of their necks and ( something new I've learned ) yoke ... how can I go about building both of these to massive proportions ? I hit my neck twice a week ( doing wrestling type neck bridges ... perhaps I'm doing them wrong ? LOL ! ) but it doesn't seem to be growing very well. And, yes, I do understand that Powerlifting isn't always about looks ... it's about what you can do on the platform ... but I'd at least like to look strong as well ... you know, like the old school guys ( Kaz comes to mind ).

I agree with Vin. The 3 main lifts for powerlifting basically take care of it.Lift heavy! Use compound lifts. Squat, deadlift, row, shoulder press, and bench. I don't even bother with shrugs.
Current PR's 198 - 220
Squat - 777 - 771.5
Bench - 611.7 - 628.2
Deadlift - 567 - 584
Total 1929 - 1973
I've only been powerlifting for a year, but during that time my neck has grown almost 4" ( it's not fat either.) I don't do anything for it other than heavy deads, squats and bench.
Hey, thanks a lot guys for the replies ! I really appreciate it ! Time to go to the gym and lift heavy ... but after I finish this Porterhouse though ...
