I remember back in 2020 when I first got the Iron neck and took it over to a friend’s house who was having some neck pain to show off my new toy. He looked at it and laughed, but was up me teaching him how to use it. He half-heartedly tried it out and promptly forgot about it. Fast forward to earlier this year, he finally broke down and bough an Iron Neck after 2 years of neck pain. He has been consistently using it for a month and has less neck pain and is able to keep up with all the activates he likes without having to take weeks off due to neck pain.
I know the Iron Neck looks pretty goofy, it is a very specialized piece of equipment that is great for your neck, upper back and core. The neck is a commonly overlooked strength area because the neck is hard to train, the Iron Neck makes this easy. The big goals of the iron neck are injury prevention, Increased neck stability and range of motion, reducing pain, and improving core stability with biomechanics.
When you increase neck strength in a safe way you decrease the risk for injuries, this system provides a great way to help increase strength to help with daily life improving your postural strength muscles as well as being able to get sport specific to help with ju-jitsu, golf, and almost any other sport out there.
Improving neck range of motion and improving stability are easy, due to the free range of movement that can be achieved with the iron neck. Dynamic movements can be used with functional strengthening in the range of motion you need.
When we improve range of motion and stability we get a reduction in pain. As you perform the movements with the Iron Neck you will feel your core muscles activate and increase your functional core awareness with movement. I highly recommend the Iron Neck for anyone with neck pain.
Consistency is important to change movement patterns. It will take 4-6 weeks to create true strength gain but after starting these exercises you will notice improvements because the muscle will become more efficient with their firing patterns.
