    How many of you have a neck circumference bigger than 19 inches?

    The average neck size for a man is 15 inches. Am wondering how much bigger a neck can get with training.

    I measured just for the hell of it, since I do neck exercises for flexibility/mobility (not with any weight resistance, although I do hold positions for a brief amount of time) and my neck is 17 inches.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    The neck is like any other muscle.
    Some areas respond better than others and will be different for everyone.
    Also the work you put into it will have a bearing on your size.
    Say if your a wrestler and do neck frequently your neck will grow but how much is an individual thing.

    5'9 200lbs 18 1/2" neck. I went for 10 years without training, and used to wear a 17" fitted. But being back in the gym over the past decade it has grown to where it is now.


    It should be noted that abuse of androgens will also cause a disproportionate growth of neck and shoulders. Androgen receptors are higher in those areas. We have all see the people with HUGE delts, traps and neck, and yet their backs have little in the way of development. This is a sign that they relied on a lot of help.

    FWIW, having a big neck sucks. It does not matter if you are fat or muscle. If your neck get over a point you risk breathing problems. At any weight above 10 bf, I struggle with sleep apnea. If I slip on diet for a while and shift up 10 lbs, it hits me bad. It is one of the reasons I stay lean since not being able to breathe in your sleep sucks!
