    My entire gym is built from them, the gear is the best I have ever used. It is built for strongmen and Olympic lifting in mind. It really is overkill for people like us (I.e., none-strength athletes), however, I buy it for absolute saftey and comfort.

    If you ever watch the Worlds Strongest Man, most of the gear is from IronMind.

    Thanks for the input guys!

    ironwolf - no dicks around me, couldnt find any on their website... what brand is yours? how long have you had yours, how is it holding up?

    nomilkforsanta - does this thing come with the chain (like in this video) or thats extra?

    This would similar to someone wanting strong legs, so you have him do body weight jumps instead of heavy squats, deadlifting, cleaning, and snatching...

    you can use weight to do these.

    to be honest, wrestlers and judokas are some of the people with the strongest necks and I've never heard of any of them using neck harnesses to train them.

    I have never heard of college wrestlers and judokas not using neck harness or a 4 way neck machine. Of course they do this drill a well, normally, during warmups or interval training.

    I guess it's a cultural thing. I'm eastern european and I've never used a harness. Instead once I got used to doing bridges with no weights we had some of the smaller guys sit on our knees with their feet on our hands and did bridges like that.
