Cable Neck Flexion

Cable Neck Flexion

Classification

Utility: Basic or Auxiliary
Mechanics: Isolated
Force: Pull

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on bench facing away from middle pulley. Place neck in harness cable attachment. Place arms on lower thighs for support.

Execution

Move head away from pulley by bending neck forward until chin touches upper chest. Return head by hyperextending neck and repeat.

Comments

Positioning pulley higher will alter tension curve by decreasing effort required near initiation of concentric contraction while increasing effort required near end of concentric contraction. Positioning pulley slightly higher than what is shown will allow greater effort in middle of movement.
