Neck Exercises Blog, A Guide to a Better Neck Posture

Hello and welcome to Neck Exercises. I am glad you want to take care of your neck. Whether you have neck pain, tension, stress or discomfort, neck exercises can help. Making small adjustments each day to include neck exercises, stretch exercises, or a neck workout, will gradually improve your neck health and quality of life. Let's get started!

Front Neck Exercise Toning

Are you feeling the front of your neck could use some toning
up? Tired of the double chin or the unpleasant increase in the neck area? Want
to do a quick and simple neck toning exercise? Then the front neck exercise toning
for the platysma muscle will be described.

Lately, I have been noticing the front of my neck and chin
area been being flabby. I noticed that after giving birth to my son nearly a
year ago that under my chin has not been as shapely as I would like. I have
decided it’s time for a neck exercise that will tone the front of the neck and
under the chin.

The front neck exercise will tone the platysma muscle. This facial
expression neck muscle starts over the front of the neck and chest area and
ends along the bottom of the jaw. The platysma muscle is a big broad flat muscle
that is responsible in bringing the mouth down and draws the lower lip down. The
neck exercise toning will help to tighten this front neck muscle.

Toning the platysma will help reduce the double chin look.
While doing chin tuck neck exercises will bring the unsightly double chin
appearance they will help strengthen the neck muscles. Both of these neck
exercises will help your neck overall. This front neck exercise will be
described in sitting.

Sitting
Position:

·        
Feet flat on the floor

·        
Rest your hands on your lap or by your
side

·        
Relax your shoulders

·        
Bring your chin back towards your
shoulders like a chin tuck

·        
Relax your jaw

·        
Eyes looking straight ahead

Front Neck Exercise:
·        
Take a breath in
·        
Tilt your head back and have your eyes look up
at the ceiling
·        
Press the tip of your tongue on the roof of your
mouth
·        
Breathe out
·        
Bring your bottom lip up and over your top lip
·        
Repeat 10 times and do 3 sets
·        
Be sure to bring your head back to neutral after
each set

There should be no pain with this neck exercise. If you
begin to feel dizzy, don’t tilt your head back as much.  When doing this neck toning exercise, you
should feel the front neck muscle working as your lift your bottom lip over
your top lip. To feel more try bringing your lip out more by protruding your
bottom jaw towards the ceiling. Enjoy this quick neck muscle toning exercise.

    You don't mention how long it takes to see some results? What do you see first? How do you know you are working the right muscle--does it get sore?

  • It'll vary from person to person for results - some may feel it right away, others it could take awhile depending on the condition. It's best for someone to watch or you can see yourself with a mirror. Muscles can get sore if they are overstretched, too much stretch or done wrong.
