Exercises for a Forward Neck Posture

By Steve Silverman

The aging process often plays havoc with the simplest movements. This includes moving our neck forwards and backwards. These are things that are often taken for granted until you have trouble with them. Here are several exercises that will increase range of motion in the neck, including ones that improve the ability to move the neck forward.

Resistance Training

Stand up and put both of your hands on your forehead. Press forward with your head, but apply enough pressure with your hands that you won't let your head move. Hold the movement for four seconds and repeat 10 times. This will build up your muscle tone in the back of your neck.

Head Tilt

Start off by standing straight up. Slowly tilt your head forward until your chin reaches your chest. Bring your head back and keep tilting your head until you are looking at the ceiling. Repeat this cycle 10 times.

Backward Resistance

Stand up and put your hands on the back of your head. Push back with your head, but don't allow it to move because your hands will provide the resistance. Hold the movement for a count of four seconds and repeat 10 times.
