I need a bigger neck
I am in the army and am facing a discharge because i am overweight. I am working on losing my body fat and have been hitting the gym a lot. Also i run between 4-6 miles a day. But it is not enough, i am trying to improve my diet by eating at the army dinning facility three times a day and then nothing in between. I take some protein shakes after i work out and take some supplements but i am not having to much luck. One thing people around here keep telling me is that if i keep a bigger neck and lose some inches of my waist ill be ok but how do i build a bigger neck? every time i lose the inches off my waist, my neck shrinks as well and the gyms here dont have any real neck machines or anything like that and i cant get to an offpost gym. What exercises can i do to create, a bigger neck. Also if i take creatine, will i lose body fat and still gain wait? i cant go up in my poundage weight right now, so what can i do? i have about a 3-4 weeks before my next weigh in and if i dont make it then it will be my last. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Everything Taurus said but....

My intuition tells me this guy is a late night snacker and that's the problem. He's eating a bunch of worthless carbs before bed. ;)

bigger neck huh???
A bigger neck, well you can try this on for size. What I do since I do not have access to a gym to use a neck machine or head strap I do a neck bridge with weight. A neck bridge is when you lie flat on the ground and roll your head back so your body is curled up on your toes, balancing on your neck. This is a wrestling workout, but for a thicker, stronger, bigger neck, this will get the job done. So your in a neck bridge, if you have a buddy that will help you out for a couple sets, if your neck can handle it, basically your going to bench off your neck. But I would not reccommend trying weight right off the bat until your comfortable with supporting your own body weight. Any questions, just yell at me.

shruggs and up right rows ... and be hind the back shrugss.

I cant lift my neck because of damage from a car accident, and its pretty thick from those

deadlifts. when i really get after it in deadlifts and start moving more and more weight, it seems like my neck just gets HUGE!

try lowering your carb intake especially at night . Eat carbs in the morning only. Also try sprinting a little more along with the runnning and drink more cold cold water. i mean real cold

Let me get this straight....this is your advice on how to get a bigger neck?

And this is the guy that wants to moderate

What would you recommend to gain size on your calves? Perhaps some extra sit-ups and lots of ovaltine?

What I'd like to know is how a bigger neck is gonna help this guy lose weight and not get discharged. What the hell is that all about?

Maybe with bigger neck he will look more in shape. I wonder what happened to him.

Reason neck size is important: military measures body fat by measuring around the neck at the adam's apple and at the wasit around the navel. Crappy way of doing it, because somebody with three chins can have a 45" waist and get away with it.
Bigger neck is easy...lots of heavy shrugs, medium to wide grip upright rows and good heavy deadlifts with good form. It may not be enough in 3-4 weeks, but if you drop your waist measurement and show some dramatic improvement, your 1st Sgt and Commander should take that into consideration and maybe grant your request for another weigh-in/measurement in 45-90 days.
Good luck.
