    Since your pic has you in a shirt and tie, trust me you don't want a thicker neck. I've always had a naturally thicker neck and end up buying dress shirts that are just a tad too big. Otherwise the neck isn't big enough.

    Shrugs are great for that.

    I agree with the shrugs. There are head harnesses you can attach weight to but look like they'd leave me paralyzed. Also they look like they'd be good for some kinky fun time post workout.

    Thank you. I had actually no idea what they did. I stopped doing them a month ago. I will be back at it today icon_biggrin.gif

    I didn't read 'neck'. This thread is a disappointment.

    Anything that works the shoulders works the neck as well. E.g. shoulder military press.

    Shrugs work the trapezius, of which the top is part of the neck.

    I don't think people routinely work the sternocleidomastoid.icon_lol.gif

    Nerd. You probably jerk off into your Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy at night.

    No, I just know that particular muscle because I love it when I feel it. Many patients have such thick and short necks (not to say obese) that the landmarks for IJ line insertion are gone.
    I use the ultrasound but for teaching purposes the top of the triangle is nice to find. I hate the posterior approach.

    i'm surprised that no one said, GIVE MORE BLOW JOBS... you're moving your neck a ton... that should give adequate stimulation for growth

    I agree with shrugs. But also, most exercises for the traps and some medial and posterior deltoid exercises will also have an effect.
