    Neck strengthening

    I need to strengthen my neck for the clinch. My neck muscles are really weak at the moment and I am having trouble keeping my positure and position in the clinch, that and my neck cains for a few days after.

    You guys know of any "safe", good exercises to do to strengthen it (other than clinching more)?

    Thanks in advance

    Effective, yes. There are many. Safe, I'm not as sure about. I was a wrestler and have done hours and hours of neck bridging, both front and back. Probably the most effective way to strengthen the neck that I've ever tried. I'm not so sure that they're safe for your cervical spine though.

    The neck harness is also effective, but also potentially harmful.

    Developing your traps will help a great deal with neck strength.

    PE Trainer's suggestion about the towel is a good one. That isn't as effective as neck bridges, but they do work and I don't think they are as potentially harmful as the neck bridges.

    I'm almost afraid to ask, but what were you thinking of?

    The reason I said cervical spine is because I think the neck bridges are great for the neck muscles, it's just the discs, and ligaments of the neck that I'm not so sure about.

    As has already been said: Neck bridges, neck bridges, and more neck bridges.

    For strengthening the traps, I suggest shrugs with dumbbells. I love 'em.
