As we age, getting rid of fat from all of those problem areas on our bodies that are known to store fatty deposits becomes increasingly more difficult.
The area that we’ll be discussing today has been given the name of “Neck Fat.”
I’m pretty sure you’ve no doubt heard of the others such as Back Fat, Belly Fat, Thigh Fat, Knee Fat, and so on.
There are four main reasons for why it’s so difficult to get rid of fat from those areas.
Reason 1: Over consumption of foods high in saturated fats
Reason 2: Lack of exercising
Reason 3: Slow metabolism
Reason 4: Genetic predisposition
I’m going to be transparent by informing you that there are no magic bullet formulas for getting rid of neck fat naturally. It takes a combination of diet and exercise to melt that stubborn and annoying fat off.
The good news is that millions of other people just like you have succeeded in doing so.
Like the fatty deposits that are stored in our Backs, Abdominals, and Thighs, you must lose overall body fat to see a noticeable reduction. Spot training these areas doesn’t work; you have to train your entire body. You must lose overall body fat in order to create a synergistic fat burning effect.
Let’s get into those tips…
TIP 1: Choose Neck Exercises That Targets Your Neck Muscles
Since your goal is to reduce your neck fat and create lean muscle mass, you must perform exercises that specially target those muscles.
Here’s a short list of the best exercises that you could perform:
- Dumbbell Shrugs
- Barbell Shrugs
- Machine Shrugs
- Upright Rows
There’s no need to use any complicated exercises, because this list will get the job done.
TIP 2: Use Strict Exercise Form To Get Better Results
I cannot emphasize this fact enough; you must use proper exercise form in order to target your neck muscles effectively, and to reduce the chances of getting injured.
You never want to use momentum when performing neck exercise movements, because you don’t want to screw around with your spine.
As brilliant as our doctors are, our backs once injured never completely recovers and chances are you’ll experience pain for the rest of your life.
Now with the negative out of the way, neck exercises are safe as long as you respect your spine and the movements by using proper form.
There’s absolutely no reason to be afraid, because if you don’t strengthen your neck muscles, they’ll get weaker as you grow older, which will increase your risk of injury doing normal everyday task.
So, training your neck muscles is great for not only getting rid of fat, you benefit by strengthening them to reduce your chances of getting a neck injury.
TIP 3: Perform Higher Repetitions For Faster Toning
There is a general rule of thumb in the fitness world that states, “If you want your muscles to grow a lot bigger, then use heavier weights and lower repetitions in the neighborhood of 6 to 8.”
And if you want to develop leaner muscles, but not the bodybuilder type, you should stick to lighter weights and repetitions in the range of 12 to 15.
That makes perfect sense, right?
Larger muscles are stronger and bigger, which require heavier weights.
Smaller muscles are not as strong, but can be toned, which require lighter weights to develop.
The choice is yours to make.
Your neck muscles are strong, so you’ll want to cycle your training in a way where you focus a couple of weeks on developing strength and another couple of weeks performing higher repetitions in the 12 to 15 range. This will give you the best of both worlds, strength and definition development.
If you’re a beginner, I recommend performing repetitions in the 12 to 15 range, using lighter weights. This will allow you to build up your strength and a solid muscular foundation first.
