  1. With your head and neck in a neutral position (normal position with head erect facing forward), place both of your hands on the front side of your head.
  2. Now gently push forward as you contract the neck muscles but resisting any movement of your head. Start with slow tension and increase slowly. Keep breathing normally as you execute this contraction.
  3. Hold for the recommended number of seconds.
  4. Now release the tension slowly.
  5. Rest for the recommended amount of time and repeat with your hands placed on the back side of your head.

Variations: You can also do this exercise by placing your hands on the sides of your head. First do one side and then the next.

Dec 12, 2013 6:56 PM: I use this as part of my warmup before grappling. I do 30 sec holds in each position; front, back and sides. I also add two isometric moves of my own by lining up my knuckles with my jaw to activate neck
