@lyle_henley on The Value of Tension & Isometric Creativity...
. “If I'm cuing a guy to do a certain exercise and movement over and over and over, it's amazing how when we put them under tension and give them those cues, all of a sudden they hit home, and they get it right. There's something about putting them under tension where they can feel it.”
. "Our strength and stability movements are testing time under tension. By adding Iron Neck in, it forces our players to hold their heads up. It makes it way more challenging and more importantly teaches them to get in the correct position through feedback they can feel.” .
Henley’s approach to incorporating neck strengthening into various movements allows for some form of neck training to be done every day, and this increased frequency in neck training accomplishes more than just improving posture and movement.
Research has found that improved next strength can reduce the risk of sustaining concussions by reducing whiplash and rotational forces that are often left out of the player-safety conversation.
. “Training the neck is the number one way for a strength and conditioning coach to help prevent concussions. The football game is so chaotic. You never really know where the next hit is coming from.”
. “Our guys deliver, and they absorb hits better than they did in the past. I would 100 percent contribute that to the different movements we put our guys through under tension.” Read more at iron-neck.com/blog/uab
