    Working your Neck?

    For my traps all I do is shoulder shrugs, not sure what else you can do, but how do you get your neck thicker. I've been working out for a few years now and I'm noticing that my neck is looking a little disproportional to size of chest and arms.

    What is the best exercise for your neck?

    Oh man, I can't imagine the soreness in your neck after the first day of working it out.
    You kill me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize....

    make sure you are doing shrugs correctly, you have to work them like your biceps and really focus on them. also less weight is more. ever see those guys shrugging 200kg on a bar which barely moves - waste of time - use lighter dumbells and let those delts touch the ears. Isolated neck excercises can be dangerous. focus on shrugs and upright bar rows and slow crunches believe it our not

    Thanks for the link dude. Damn those are some rough exercises. They can't be good for your neck. I'll give em a try anyways.

    I used to do this one on a regular basis:

    I was playing football and wrestling at the time too. If you have one of those soft mats you can do some bridging work. Lay on your back and using your legs and neck try to arch up. Its light enough weigh that it doesn't bother your legs but it puts enough strain on the neck to get it stronger.
