    Neck training

    October 1, 2018, 2:33 am

    will 70lbs for sets of 4 by 20 reps be enough to grow my neck to 17"? training it 3x a week both curls and extensions. i heard that workload isn't always the same in example 225lbs x 5 isn't = to 135lbs 15 reps for 3 sets. is this the same for neck training?  i want to build strength and mass. i'm also 5'6 140 lbs planning to bulk.

    @faijaii It's a good start. You will always need to overload in some way to keep growing your neck though, because like anything, you will probably reach a plateau at some point. If that comes before you get to 17 inches, then you might need to do more sets, more reps, or more weight.

    @faijaii I don't think so. Neck training isn't really about super super heavy weight. As long as you're getting some kind of progressive overload done, then you'll be on track!

    If you can get to 4x20 with 70lbs then I imagine your neck would have made lots of size gains. Many will hit 17 from that. Keep bulking and focus on the process, I have no doubt you will conquer your goals. Also make sure to hit the sides and back of your neck (higher volume recommended like 4x25) this way you'll really be complete. And as Scott pointed out, super heavy weights aren't required. Simple focus on that progressive overload in whatever set/rep range you choose to.
