    Do you know of the exercise that you basically plant your forehead on the floor, then push up on to your feet and use as much of your neck to move your head up and down, and from side to side using your body as resistance? Or has that exercise been declared dangerous and I just don't know it yet?

    Still done in high school wrestling last time I heard. Another thing we used to do: lie flat on your back, go into a neck bridge, and then do pullovers with a fifty pound sandbag. Not sure if it was safe, but it definitely worked you.

    I'd still do it regardless, my personal experience with it is beneficial. It stretches as well as strengthens, last week when I complained about a crick in my neck, guess what exercise I didn't do before rolling?

    From memory I would do it before hitting the rugby field and being a hooker, a tight head and a loose head prop (at various stages, not at the same time), my neck was regularly put under intense pressure.

    Well me neither, but what it does reduce is the incidence of TNI. Where TNI = Traumatic Neck Injury.

    Sorry, missed this.
    Just unconvinced.
    Sure at the extremes, pencil neck guy is easier to ko than coconut head, but i'm not sure one can substantially reduce one's risk simply by making the neck stronger.
    Often ko shots you don't see coming and neck muscles don't pad the brain.


    edit:
    Conclusions: Our hypothesis that players with greater static neck strength would experience lower resultant head accelerations was not supported. This contradicts the notion that cervical muscle strength mitigates head impact acceleration. Because we evaluated cervical strength isometrically, future studies should consider dynamic (ie, isokinetic) methods in the context of head impact biomechanics.

    ...there has been no definitive evidence that neck strengthening plays a role in concussion prevention.
