    Neck Training:

    Warning: Ease into neck training if you havent done it in the past!

    Nobody likes getting KTFO! right? It might be a good idea
    to work on something that will help prevent this. So Let's take a look at how we can strengthen the neck area.

    To support our neck we need to strengthen the muscles, surrounding it. The biggest and strongest in that area are the traps. This is what Ian King had to say:
    Sure he's talking about the appearance of the neck, but wouldnt it stand to reason that this would have a lot of carryover to MAists trying not to get KTFO!?

    So as part of strenghtening our neck area we need to build our traps up. So here's some excercises and links:

    One simple isometric excercise my Pops taught me was to place your hand on a place on your head and push against it. Works with the wall too, just make sure your head is already touching ot before pushing. :)

    Agree! Nice posts, lots of information.

    I started weight training in January after being off from Martial arts for more than 2 years. Really make a difference in both endurance & strength. Felt it during the MMA & Jiu-jitsu sparring.

    Thank you for this great post with a lot of useful information. I recently have joined a gym, and now going to start weightlifting to get muscle mass. I am very glad to find this thread, hope it helps me to start in the right way.

    Can first-degree scoliosis somehow interfere with my training?
