Lowering Risk

It is well known that weaker necks cannot mitigate  accelerations to the head, as well as athletes with stronger necks. This is substantiated in a research study in the Journal of Primary Prevention, Neck strength: a protective factor reducing risk for concussion in high school sports., found
“For every one pound increase in neck strength, odds of concussion decreased by 5 % (OR = 0.95, 95% CI 0.92-0.98). We conclude that identifying differences in overall neck strength may be useful in developing a screening tool to determine which high school athletes are at higher risk of concussion.”

As a coach, parent and athlete make sure neck training is an important and inclusive part of the preparation for sport. Not only will training the neck make an athlete better, but it will lower the risk of serious injury. Get the neck Strong.

Getting Ahead of Extension

The tricep brachii is a single muscular unit with three distinct heads: the medial, the lateral and long heads. It functions as a powerful extensor of the upper extremity. Each head has a different fatigue rate and each head becomes more or less active relative to shoulder elevation.

At 0 degrees of elevation the long head of the triceps applies the most muscle force. As the shoulder becomes more elevated, reaching 90 degrees and higher the medial head of the triceps becomes the dominant extensor.

The Pendulum Rack System

The ‘Ayes’ Have It.

‘Eye’ movement and neck muscle is coordinated with the sensory organs of vision, hearing and balance. Individuals can activate different cervical muscles depending on eye direction.  The coordination of the head, neck, and eye increases the level of sensitivity to postural changes. In athletics this has led to the quote, “Where the head goes, the body follows.”

Training the neck is a crucial part of athleticism. Seeing and hearing what is transpiring in an athletic event and quickly activating strong and explosive muscles that are used to turn the head, accelerates the ability of an athlete to get into proper position.
