    Neck bridges, or lie on your back with your legs on the wall, and move your head in a nodding motion, and then touch your ears to your shoulders.

    Stretch out your neck alot and take it easy when you get injured. I have a herniated disc in my neck from not taking a break, and now every guillotine, brabo, and monson done as a crank makes me want to cry.

    i find that stretching my neck out and loosening it up is a good way to lower the chances of injury, since its nice and relaxed as opposed to stiff. before class i usually rotate my neck both ways, move it side to side, and up and down for a good 3-4 min.

    be careful when youre doing those neck bridges, a lot of people dont do them right, and end up fucking their neck up even worst.
