Step by Step Guide
Begin standing with the feet hip distance apart with the arms down at your side.
Pretend as if there is a tennis ball between your chin and chest. Nod the chin downward while still looking forward. That small nodding motion will contract the muscles at the front of the neck while also slightly stretching muscles at the base of the skull.
Hold for 5-seconds.
Relax and return the head to the start position.
Repeat for the desired reps.
A common mistake is performing the motion from the entire cervical spine (neck) causing the neck to round to achieve the nod. Instead, focus on isolating the movement to just the upper neck as only the chin tilts down while the rest of the neck remains still.
