PROTECT YA NECK
I’ve said it before & it bares repeating: when training/moving/living subtle adjustments can make the difference between sweet success & utter pain..
So what do trainers mean when we say “KEEP YOUR NECK ALIGNED”?! You want to both pull your chin back [not drop it down] AND grow the crown of your head upward at the same time. Basically, if you move your head like you’re imitating a chicken, when you pull your head & chin back, that’s about where you wanna be. I demo it here.
In the video demo, I showed both poor & proper neck alignment for squats & push-ups, but awareness of neck alignment is crucial every exercise - core work, rows, deadlifts, everything!!
If you’ve never really paid attention to this before, fair warning: your neck muscles will probably feel SUPER fatigued by the end of your session! But that’s way better than ending up with unexpected aches & pains!! Always reach out with questions , squad!!!
