What excersize can I do to strengthen those mucsles?
I saw a blue belt do this kind of push up with his head. He would lay on his back raise his knees and push off with the back of his head.
Any one with any experience with some thing like this?
Any advice would help a bunch, thanks...
Just make sure that you never directly stack your head on the mat with direct, vertical downward pressure because it can compress and rupture your neck vertebrae. (it's called axial loading in medical jargon.) I f**ked myself up bad doing that and had to have neck surgery
