Neck Extention Overview

The muscles in the neck help us move our head around, and they also help us keep our head up. If we don't use these muscles often, they can get weak and we can start to experience pain or problems with our neck. That's why it's important to work these muscles regularly, so we can keep them strong and healthy.

The muscles that work when you do neck extension are the trapezius and the sternocleidomastoid. These muscles help you extend your neck and lookup. You can work these muscles by doing exercises like a crunch or a reverse crunch. You can also do neck extensions with weights to increase the resistance. Make sure to use proper form when doing these exercises to avoid any injuries.

How To Do It

  • Lie down on a surface with your face facing the floor
  • Keep your hands by your sides
  • Lift up your chin towards the ceiling
  • Return back to the original position

Neck Extention Tips 

  • When doing neck extension exercises, make sure to always use proper form. This will help prevent any injuries from happening.
  • If you're not sure how to do an exercise correctly, ask a trainer or another fitness professional for help.
  • Be sure to start with lighter weights and increase the weight gradually as you get stronger. This will help minimize the risk of injury.
  • Stop doing any exercises that cause pain or discomfort.
