Hey

Do you guys think that working out my neck will help hide my (very) pronounced adams apple?

Thoughts on the subject?

maybe... probably not though, because there's not much muscle on the front of your neck... thus why it's extremely vulnerable to strikes. Anyways strengthening your neck is a smart move so you should probably do it anyways... at the end of the day... you are who you are and if people don't like it fuck em'... you owe them nothing for being you.

No I very much doubt this. The front of the throat is purely a sensitive "kill" area. A punch or kick to the throat really can be deadly and there's not a lot you can do to prevent it.

well if you got a really, really thick neck... it might make it less noticeable... who knows until you try! Mind you with a really thick neck you may get breathing problems when you sleep... so... yea.. lol!

Don't worry too much though, if this does happen to you, you've got about 3 minutes to return the favour (with interest :-P), call an ambulance and cut a hole in your neck.

*Imagines a buff ass neck transgender* HAHAH! Actually it's because that whenever i get into a fight, my opponent goes for my adams apple. It IS a really weak spot.

Also it seems like you guys don't think that training my neck muscles will work. Guess I'll just have to keep my guard up ;)

Maybe you should do wrestlers bridges, neck flexions and trap shrugs for a few months. Then come back and tell us if it worked. Because I'd like to know!

Not that simple. You don't live where i live.
Btw my adams apple is about the same size as Lil Wayne's. If any of you guys can relate to that :b

That's true, fights here start in eye contact and end with a gun pointing at your face. I honestly have never been in a full on street fight where I live. Other cities and towns yes, very rarely, this town, no, because I value my life.

It takes very little extra muscle or fat to see a big difference visually.
Skinny people use have very visibile adam apple while lean ripped people have less visible adam apple. It's not just that that the extra muscle and fat covers the adam apple but also that if your physique is more compact and firm your adam apple looks more as an even part of your body rather than an isolated bump that catches one's attention.

ashers uk stick to what you know and go drink some fucking tea. Fuckin brit, christ...


This is some of the stupidest shit Ive read in a while. "there is no protection for the neck.." what the fuck...

Thats pretty much all i remember in boxing is protecting the chin. Well guess what,if your fucking chins protected, then your neck certainly is. I go into a boxing stance and you wouldn't even know i had a neck.

You got to get used to operating looking through your eyebrows man. Keep your chin and neck down and if you are in a fight stance use your shoulder and fists to protect your chin.


Lastly, if someone is grabbing your throat in a fight or as playing break their fucking noes, that shit isn't a fucking joke its very disrespectful. Grabbing your neck is like gouging someones eyes, boxing someones ears, or kicking someone in the nuts.

It ain't fuckin right.

What are you two on? Why do you guys have to respond like A-holes. There is a big difference between making jokes (as some have in this thread... including myself) and behaving like someone just spat in your face. Everything you guys said was simply put into one simple, polite response before you even posted.... read the following quote:


CHIN DOWN brother, not just for your apple, but for absorbing the punches also!

see.. no need to spout abuse and belittle people. Anyway I hope you guys can go and take a few deep breaths before you post next time.

You can't walk around with your guard up for ever. If anything having your guard up just instigates violence. So as a matter of fact, your neck is always unprotected, it's only when you get into a fight, or the fight starts and you're the victim you put your guard up. He's talking about on the street, not in a ring. Get a grip Dom.

man i think you guys are underestimating how much a neck can hypertrophy.

If you wanna hide your adam's apple you got 2 options.

option a) try finding the adam's apple on that actress(?) from that movie Precious.

option b) try finding the adam's aaple on a jacked wrestler.

lets get one thing straight I was never the bully I was always the underdog. In grade seven I was suspended for three days for using the word cocksucker to the vice principals face, other students were encouraged to beat the fuckin shit out of me by all those macho gym teacher faggots. They all hated me for my language and the attitude.

Fuck em.

I don't know if it would alter the visibility of your adams apple, but incorporating exercises that work the traps (Handstand push-ups, upright rows, etc.) could definitely make your neck bigger, which would WOW people away from that part of your neck!
