How to Make your Neck Longer – Get a Longer Neck
The Sterno muscles in the neck can surprisingly deliver quite a significant amount of height due to the head being pushed up higher.
So you may increase height by lengthening neck or neck elongating exercises.
Lengthening the neck is relatively easy since its made of a group of muscles and the bones in the back which have cartilages in between.
Studies that evaluated the biochemical effect of stretching showed that muscle length does increase during stretch application due to the viscoelastic properties of muscle.
However, this length increase is transient, its magnitude and duration being dependent upon the duration and type of stretching applied.
Stand still or up right with your head straight and your shoulders freely falling.
Tilt your head over to the left shoulder but lightly for 10 seconds and do the same to the right shoulder.
Fall your head to the back and be able to look to the ceiling for ten seconds and do the same with your head facing the floor.
after the entire workout, roll your head around.
