"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

now, stick a can holder on each side and it could perform double-duty.

Great idea. How does it work for side movement? Do you lay on your side? If so does the helmut choke you or twist too much?

Ron,

I lay on a ~45* bench as I do all 4 directions and for side you have to balance the helmet slightly with your hands. In spite of this, it works quite well.

And the missus can get some enjoyment out of it as well. Bargain!

Skyler,

Lets see a shot of the inside of the helmet. Is it one of the really old ones with webbing, or does it have padding inside? If it's properly fitted, it should be fine for lateral flexion, and even rotation (with horns on the side for manual-self resistance).

Does it pick up satellite radio as well as AM/FM?

Just kidding Skyler, looks cool. You will find a heavy duty towel with grommet holes and a bit of chain and clip is quite versatile as well. You fold the towel to get better thickness at the holes (towards the ends) and bunching it up at the ends for the holes creates a sling in the middle (to cradle the head at various angles) if you can picture that.

Regards,
Andrew

I know that a lot of you are down on John S and PDA for a variety of reasons but giving credit where its due, he offers a football helmet that works the neck that is very well made, fits well if you order the correct size, and is a very effective and convenient way to train the neck if done correctly (stressing slow and careful). I've made a number of these through the years, starting with a suspension helmet (Riddell RK 4) and progressing to the Riddell VSR models of the early 1980's. I would not suggest the use of any of the RK or TK suspension helmets for this application. A 1970's PAC type of construction or later models would serve better re: proper fit and holding proper position on the head during movement, even slow movement.

Hello Dr. Ken,

I've seen his helmet and agree it's a high quality piece that is possibly worth the cost. The reason I did this is simple: I like making tools for cheap that get used on nobody but myself. The helmet fits me well and if my skull starts shrinking via voodoo curse, I'll pick up a smaller helmet and redrill.

It was your photos that gave me the idea of how to make it and I thank you for that.

-S
