    Shrugs, deads, should do the job for the trap and neck. I have seen people put like 35 plates on there head and tilt back and forth, but I think that is unneccasary

    just be sure to not ask keymastur what his routine neck workout is.


    What is your goal, general thickness of the neck?

    bridging is something wrestlers do to build the neck, but I think it is bad for the neck in the longrun.

    That is correct. Wrestler's bridges will do more harm than good. Do not do them.

    If you wish to risk injury then use 35lb plates. Generally just performing neck rotations looking far right then left and bobbing forward back & forth no weight. Sternocleidomastoid muscles are worked when do upper back/posterior delts ,traps and inner back rhomboids which connect the back of the neck. Use of a close V/D-handle on most pulling exercise like seated row works the rhomboids good. Basic trap & shoulder exercise you work the neck somewhat. Remember it is a muscle so why use weights to make it huge? However certain injuries may require weights for rehab having the therapist watching. Most compound movements work the neck to some degree.

    We used to work out our necks at football practice. Have a training partner put resistance on your neck as you push:
    1. forward to back
    2. back to front
    3. left to right
    4. right to left
    Make sure that you push slowly and controlled in a 4-count. (1,2,3,4, then go back)
