In the previous post we provided examples of basic exercises to active the neck muscles in the form of isometric holds (http://www.thescienceofstriking.com/training/neck-strength-basics-part-2/). The load with these exercises may be progressed in the form of the cervical bridges featured below. Once the athlete is comfortable bridging from the knees, the exercises may be progressed to the feet to increase the relative load.
In the the last post we will discuss provide examples of how we train neck isometric holds in multiple directions as well as strengthening reacting to external stimulus.
A full framework of neck strength training is featured in the science of striking, available in both hard-copy and kindle formats (https://www.amazon.com/Science-Striking-Comprehensive-Physical-Preparation/dp/1729586821/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1543575646&sr=8-2&keywords=The+Science+of+Striking+Sam+Gilbert)
