Mobility: "Head Tilt"

Directions: Perform my Dynamic Warm-Up exercises at “beginning” of workout for maximum benefit and improvement.
Pick a safe level; never be unsafe or exceed your capacity to “control” your body!

Head Tilt-1    Head Tilt-2    Head Tilt-3

OBJECTIVE: Open up vertebrae & muscles in neck.

  1. Stand upright and “tall” with good posture.

  2. Tilt head straight to one side and directly over one shoulder.

  3. Pause briefly then alternate the opposite direction.

  4. Perform 5-10 reps on each side.

  5. Do NOT compensate by shrugging your shoulders!

Exercise Figure Tips: Make sure you tilt head straight off to each side without shrugging the shoulder to compensate for a tight neck.  Don't force by "pulling" with hands--just use weight of head and let it go over.

  • Yet another simple exercise that people struggle with because they are so locked up.  Think--this is for mobility of the "neck" and NOT the shoulders.  Put the movement in your neck only even if it's only a little. 

  • Other Neck Mobility exercises I use successfully are Head Turn and Head 1/2 Roll.

  • Mobility Exercises (Organizer List Only)

*Note: This exercise is intended for "normal healthy" individuals.  If you have an injury, or abnormal pain is present,
see your physician or a certified physical therapist before continuing your exercises.
