How to build a stronger neck (part 1)

In order to build a stronger and healthier neck, one must understand 4 crucial structures of the cervicothoracic anatomy, as is described in the image above. The cross indicates 4 muscle groups, each located in the 1)upper frontal, 2)lower frontal, 3)upper rear and 4)lower rear quadrants acting as tension cords that anchors and pulls from the base of the neck to maintain an upright posture (base of the neck). Thus, it is given the pictorial name to the anatomical junction, the "upper-cross".
