Exercise for neck muscles

Hi,

Can anyone recommend some good exercises to exercise my the neck muscles. I don't have access to a head strap so any suggestions would be most welcome.

cheers

    I did the suggested exercises but gave up after a few weeks - too much hassle. If you increase in size your neck will follow.. especially with trap growth etc.

    Hope that helps..

    I lie on a flat bench with a weight plate resting on my forehead (use a towel) and extend my chin to my chest. You can also use a lying leg curl for the back of the neck. Just lie the opposite way you would when doing leg curls, put your head on the pad and push your head straight up. Works quite well.

    A lot of gyms have a four-way neck machine, but if yours does not, the above are good substitutes.

    Let it sink.... I can swim.

    Be careful with these though, injuring this area could be bad...

    I think ur neck will grow fine without any direct work
