Selectorized neck machines are used to strengthen the muscles in the neck. Strengthening the muscles in the neck is important for a variety of reasons. It can help reduce the severity of certain injuries, provide better balance and a stronger spine, and also improve athletic performance. What reason do you have not to strengthen your neck?
Selectorized neck machines are pretty simple to use. The Equipment Guys offer a 4-Way Neck machine with the following specs:
- 4 Handles for 4-Way Neck Exercises
- 75-lb Composite Steel Weight Stack
- 11 Gauge All-Steel Construction
- 2’ W x 5’ L x 63” H
- Neck Pad – 7.5″ W x 9.5″ L
- Seat Pad – 11” x 11”
- Pivoting Face Plate
- Adjustable Seat
Our 4-Way selectorized neck machines offer the ability to strengthen your neck in all four directions. In addition to the neck pads, our selectorized neck machines also come with a neck harness and adjustable weights and provide great range of motion. It’s simple and easy to use and only requires a few minutes to complete. A great benefit of selectorized neck machines is that they are volume-friendly, meaning you can train several athletes in a short amount of time.
Although selectorized neck machines are great for athletes, they are also very good tools for those with generally weak neck muscles – whether from genetics or injury – and those who are trying to improve overall muscle strength. Neck strengthening routines have been overlooked until recently, but there are major benefits to implementing them in the weight room.
Though there is still a debate about the effects of head and neck strengthening and whether it can actually help prevent concussions and other serious injuries, as long as there are studies showing that these exercises will reduce the severity of them, selectorized neck machines should be included on all high school weight room equipment and college weight room equipment checklists to help protect athletes.
