Along with proper football skill training in tackling (see www.butkushighschoolhits.com), strengthening the neck muscles is probably the most important areas a football player can develop. A strong neck can go a long way to prevent and protect against football neck injuries. Luckily it's one of the easiest areas to get great results in a short amount of time.
There are 7 areas of neck development: Front, Back, Left side, Right side, Rotational to the left, rotational to the right, and neck/upper back (Shrugging). Neck exercises are to be done slow and controlled. Try to progress in weight/reps every time you workout.
For the best results in building muscle, complete 1-2 sets of 12 repetitions of the following neck training circuit:
Neck Flexion (Tilting Down to the front)
|Back in the Day...Butkus Nautilus neck workout|
- Neck Extension (Tilting back to the rear)
- Left Side Flexion
- Right Side Flexion
- Neck Rotation to each side
