    Default Added neck harness deadlifts back into my neck day...

    I added neck harness deadlifts back into my neck day (its actually my axial skeletal focus day, which comes 2x a week). I'm probably going to remove the wrestlers neck bridge, and shift its reps/ sets over to the harness dead lifting. Between this, the front neck bridge, and all the assistance neck work I do i feel awesome.

    My neck and back feel like heaven on earth!

    What do you guys do for your neck work?
    (Hoping to start a conversation...)

    In his DD article Neck Training for Boxers (http://www.dragondoor.com/articles/n...ng-for-boxers/) Steve Baccari, the boxing coach, uses only bodyweight neck training with his athletes. This is what I do when I can remember to.

    I also use the harness for my neck, when I train it.

    This is closer to how I like to train my neck, I brace it and use my legs to create movement.
    For instance, in the front bridge I use my legs to rock me (almost like the setup for a granby roll from tripod). I used to actually move my neck in bridges, but since I don't wrestle any more I don't see any point in risking it. Same with wrestler bridges, I always struggle with the safety of these, I may keep a couple holds in, but the risk is to great.

    I'm thinking about adding in neck harness windmills, I've never done these before, but the idea occurred to me this morning.

    What kind of isometrics are you doing?

    The simplest kinds. Resisting movement in the sagittal and the coronal planes: front and back, left and right respectively. I was contemplating a much simpler version of the wrestler's neck workout of the kind you mention. Maybe against a wall?

    I haven't started the neck bridges yet, but I do "dynamic tension" (I guess that would be the word). I push against my head for the straight movements & against my jaw for the twisting ones.

    I love all the movements that become possible when you post off your head (I'm just nervous about the safety as I get older). You'll have to let me know if you like wall bridging, I still use the wall as part of my warmup. I almost think its therapeutic in nature compared to floor work, my neck always feels great afterwards.
