This exercise, the hitchhiker, is powerful for both toning the posterior neck muscles, and at the same time, stretching the anterior soft tissues of the neck. This is vitally important if your neck curve is lessened, or reversed, especially so if your neck posture has been quite long-term.

Please only perform this exercise if you have been advised to by your chiropractor.

We recommend doing 6 repetitions each side, for a total of 12. The arm movement is purely to engage your eyes, which helps achieve the best neck motion.

David reckons this is a great warm-up exercise before golf, although if you saw how he plays golf most days, that wouldn’t be a very inspiring recommendation!
