Tips: You can perform this exercise seated or standing. Place your head and neck in a neutral position. Place both your left hand on the on the left side of your head and gently push for the required number of seconds on your workout. Resist any movement of your head by "isometrically" contracting your neck muscles. Repeat with your right hand on the right side of your head.

This is an excellent way to strengthen your neck muscles with minimal risk of injury. Can also be done on the front and back of the head.

Tips: Lie face down with shoulders about even with the end of a flat bench. Place a barbell plate on the back of your head and hold it in place with your hands. Raise head up and back in a semicircular motion as far as comfortable. Return to starting position.

Tips: Place the desired weight on chain attached to the head harness. Sit on a flat bench with your feet firmly on the floor. Lean forward slightly so the plate hangs free. Place your hands on your knees. Raise head up and back in a semicircular motion as far as comfortable. Can be done standing as well.
