When it comes to trying to prevent neck injuries for athletes, such as soccer/football and other sports that are prone to concussions, there is some evidence to suggest stronger neck muscles can mitigate the risk of neck injury. The last few weeks in phase 2 of this program do include more resistance exercises with weights and resistance bands as well as challenging body weight exercises. You can accommodate the resistance for yourself so that the recommended rep ranges are still challenging to truly make it PREHAB for yourself!
Just so you are aware, our shoulder program may be more appropriate if you’re looking for more strengthening exercises for your shoulders and upper back. However, from our experience in the clinic this programming has helped a lot of people build the movement foundation they need to feel and move better so that they can tolerate strengthening exercises!
