    As I entered the end of my second wave of 5/3/1 I was noticing a lot of development in my traps, shoulders and chest but my neck was awkwardly thin so I started working it out a few times a week and noticed it was pretty weak. I was wondering what benefits are there from having a strong neck besides being well proportionate? I just thought of something else to ask. My chest and shoulders and getting bigger but my upper chest is still kinda flat. I do bench, incline db press, and db rows on my bench day is there something I can add that will really hit this area and help bring some size to it?

    really light cable flys, try to really concentrate on the squeeze and contraction of your chest, 3 sets of 100.

    like a horse your body will follow your head........ your neck is what you want to be driving back in to the bar ( squat) or pulling back with ( deadlift)

    ... try looking down while squatting and you'll understand what I mean
