Football Families

Don't Ignore the Neck. Conditioning Coaches  Know.  Bo Knows.


“It’s sad...to think about,” Detroit Lions assistant strength coach Ted Rath bemoaned during his Football Strength Clinic presentation. “We have players who have never trained their...necks. That’s inexcusable.” 

There are no guarantees for safety in football, or in any aspect of life.  But coaches, parents, league officials, doctors, and trainers, at all levels, have an obligation to create the safest landscape for players.   Indicators have shown that neck conditioning  will significantly reduce the likliehood of concussion.  It's no guarantee, but all players should be as prepared as physically possible before they take the field.

Bo Knows...He Always Knew!

Amazing!  Bo only worked out his neck in the gym.  He didn't lift any weights?  Durable as you can get.  How much of that was neck strength?  Field Vision...strong neck preperation?


Bo Knows!  Gotta watch this.

Coach G

Coach Guandolo of Cyprus Bay High School had been looking for a better way to strengthen player's neck muscles for years.  Existing machines or partner excercises were bulky, expensive, and sometime posed a danger of injury to the players.


The CerviFit really ticked some boxes he had been looking to tick to balance out the conditioning program.

Question from Daniel in Fresno, CA


"I've purchased a Cervifit for my son, who is starting JV Football.  What excercise can I have him do that will provide the most protection for him?"


Watch the video to see which neck muscles in particular should be conditioned for football players and the excercises best suited for Daniel's son.

Can neck strength prevent concussions?

Fox Sports: Alex Marvez 2013


"While not as publicized as other NFL anti-concussion measures, there is scientific research that shows a muscular neck likely defuses the potentially damaging forces sometimes generated when a player is hit in the head. The larger the “cylinder,” the better the chance that the neck will serve as a shock-absorber to lessen stress placed on the skull."

Neck strength: a protective factor reducing risk for concussion in high school sports.

"As the number of high school students participating in athletics continues to increase, so will the number of sports-related concussions unless effective concussion prevention programs are developed. We sought to develop and validate a cost-effective tool to measure neck strength in a high school setting, conduct a feasibility study to determine if the developed tool could be reliably applied by certified athletic trainers (ATs) in a high school setting, and conduct a pilot study to determine if anthropometric measurements captured by ATs can predict concussion risk."
