The weighted neck flexion is a great and comparatively easy to perform which helps for the developing of the neck flexor muscles. If you are going to perform the exercise for first time use a very light weight and learn the proper form.
Lie face up on a flat bench while holding a weight plate in your hands. Position your shoulders at the top of the bench so that your head and neck hang over the edge. Place the plate on your forehead and hold it in place with your hands.
Begin with your head back and down inhale and carefully lift the weights avoiding jerky movements. Hold for a second at the top exhale and lower the weights in controlled motion.
- During the exercise do not flex your abs to keep the tension on the neck muscles.
- Perform the repetitions in controlled manner and control the weights. The exercise could be very dangerous if it’s done with incorrect form.
- If you already have some type of injury in the neck area you have to avoid this type of movements.
