    Hello Ladies

    Generally we do exercises for physical fitness, build muscle strength, physiological well-being and strengthening the immune system. There are a number of exercises and techniques for each and every part of the body.

    The general focus would be loose weight, relaxation, increase stamina, body building, to rejuvenate etc. Neck is the one part of the body that is neglected often, people do not show inclination or the necessity to do exercises for the neck. Neck exercises are as important as any other exercises.

    It is very important that the neck muscles be well developed to get a firm, flexible and strong neck. Young girls and women we see these days are obsessed with long necks. I must say no body is born with a long neck. The reason why many people have short and stout necks is because they forget to exercise the neck muscles, resulting in the flabby neck.

    The following exercises have worked for me to have a strong and flexible neck.

    Stand straight with feet together, rest the hands on the hips, slowly bend the neck forward, touch the chest with the chin, stay for 20 seconds. Bring the head back to the resting position.

    Stand straight with feet together, rest the hands on the hips, slowly bend the neck backward, looking towards the ceiling, stay for 20 seconds. Bring the head back to the resting position.

    Repeat the above exercise for 20 count.

    Stand straight, rest the hands on the hips, slowly bend the neck to the right, right ear almost touching the right shoulder, stay for 20 seconds. Bring the head back to the resting position.

    Stand straight, rest the hands on the hips, slowly bend the neck to the left, left ear almost touching the left shoulder, stay for 20 seconds. Bring the head back to the resting position.

    Repeat the exercise for 20 count.

    Stand straight, rest the hands on the hips, rotate the head in the clockwise motion for 10 counts.

    Stand straight, rest the hands on the hips, rotate the head in the anticlockwise motion for 10 counts.

    As one gets comfortable with the exercises, the count can be increased to 50.

    Along with the above exercises, I must say the exercises for double chin ( look for the double chin exercises in one of my previous threads ) should be done. Unless double chin is reduced, the beauty of the long neck doesn't show. It becomes all the more important to tackle the double chin along with the neck exercises.

    If the flabby cheeks are also taken care (look for the cheek exercises in one of my previous threads ) the beauty of the long neck will be enhanced more.

    I personally feel a flabby face on a long and beautiful neck doesn't look well.

    Word of caution is, if a person has spondylitis, neck pain, muscle pain etc. better take the help of a trainer. All the neck exercises should be done in a slow motion, never with jerks or brisk movements.

    Be wise and stay fit.

    Hi I just post to ask you according to the title of this webpage ( how to get a long & flexible neck) can you tell me what you mean by flexible because in my opinion when ppl usually use the term flexible ( it usually means can rotate in all directions or stretch out of shape to the fullest & return to original size). I don't think that's what you mean by flexible. Anyways I mainly post to ask you as the above title says if you do these neck exercise would your neck actually lengthens in trute & if so how soon should you see results by within a (wk/wks,days,month etc). Finally do you have any before & after videos of persons who have follow your neck exercise routine & have seen results after doing these exercises. Anyways i look forward to your reply as soon as possible. Thanks again for sharing this & this is my first time here on this blog/page & also commenting.
