Free Neck Strength Training Program
If you play any of these sports, you should be training your neck strength to reduce risk of head and neck injury:
There are several factors in reducing head and neck injury risk in contact sports, including:
Technique – for example safe rugby tackle technique, heading a football safely.
Anticipation – developing an understanding of when contact is imminent, and how to prepare for it.
Reaction Time – being able to move to an optimal (and safe) position as quickly as possible.
Peripheral Vision – visual awareness of the space and people around you increases the time you have to prepare for contact.
