neck problem!

Hey guys, One quick question. It seems whenever i start lifting heavy, i pul**** in the back of my neck. Is this from poor form? I try to keep the best form possible, or is it just too much weight, and i need to tone it down?? And what can i do to strengthen the muscles in my neck ( not my traps).

Thanks

Height = 5'6
weight = 70.5 kg
Bench press = 108 kg
deadlift =148 kg
squat = 137 kg
leg press = 354.5 kg

    It's more likely to be some long-term injury that keeps flaring up. Of course this is hard to say unequivocally because I haven't seen your form.

    Firstly, you should perform some simple static neck stretches before you begin your weights. Simply tilt the head to one side (horizontally) and use your other hand to push the top of your head toward where you are leaning to deepen the stretch.

    You can also use neck slings, neck machines and your hands as resistance whilst pushing against them in various directions.

    If the problem keeps happening, see a physio.
