If you’ve got a stiff neck, then you MUST try the 2 exercises in this video because stiff necks are synonymous with dysfunctional neck movement and these exercises will restore proper, clean movement.
For example, I’ll ask someone to side bend their neck and it’ll be some uncomfortable looking combination of a side bend, rotation and tilt.
No wonder they’re complaining about their neck!
If you can’t move the neck in the ways it’s meant to move through the full possible ROM, the vertebrae don’t get pumped like they need to for cellular health and to maintain suppleness.
These exercises will restore clean side bending and rotation of your neck so they’re helpful whether you’re trying to slip a punch, keep your head down when teeing off or check your blind spot while driving.
2:47 is where I begin teaching you the side bend.
5:07 is where I begin teaching you rotation.
Take the time to watch, follow-along and learn the cues taught because these are movements you can take with you for the rest of your life.
Because this is so simple and our necks take a beating on a daily basis due to cell phones, computers and stupid bosses, I suggest you start and end your day with 3 reps of each.
Give it a go and let me know how it feels in the Comments.

Thanks great video can you do video with band work for neck? Do you recommend band work RoM exercises for neck I guess is the question and if yes than video. Thanks
Thanks for the stretches. Been a fan and follower of your work here for awhile. However, as a massage therapist who specializes in neck work I couldn't disagree more with what you have to say regarding the effects massage can have in the neck. Yes, alot of massage does only feel good while you're receiving it but that's because the majority of MT's are afraid of working the neck and simply do not have the know how to make much lasting change in that area. I encourage you to continue to seek out a great massage therapist who can show you the power this work can have in this area. Though of course, a stretching program, in addition to this type of work, will yield the best results. The problem with stretching alone for people with necks so tight that they cause pain like thoracic outlet syndrome is that the muscles are too tight to stretch them out effectively on their own. Which is the most powerful effect of any good massage–we are simply stretching the muscles back out of their shortened state. Anyway, thanks again, but please keep an mind towards what massage can do.
Very helpful. Thank you for the video.
Thanks! This is great.
Thanks! Going to try implementing this. Could this be done lying on your back on a firm floor as well?
