Mike is well known across the world for some of his amazing strength feats. Some of these feats include a 1,500# partial rack pull @ 202# bodyweight, a seated 300# Neck raise, Situps with 400# on his chest for reps, allowing a 5/8 piece of 4ft steel bar to be bent across the front of his throat and even performing the very dangerous Hangmans noose where Mike hung himself with a noose to demonstrate his insane neck strength.

If you are a combat athlete there is no form of Neck Training better to build the needed neck endurance for a contest. The high repetitions will fill your neck up with so much blood you'll feel as if your neck is going to pop. The pump is unbelievable. Over time the neck adapts to this load/tension and develops quickly. If a man sticks with this training he will see amazing results. But, you must not rush the process, patience is of most importance. You need to take your time to allow the neck to adjust to the work it is being put under. Rush to do the work but don't rush to reach the destination. For further proof here is a piece about "How My Neck Won A Fight". FIGHT HERE Why should you train your neck?
