Building a Bigger Yoke

Build Muscle

3 weeks / 4 days per week

This is a program to get big traps and a big neck. To get more yoked you don't just specialize in neck and trap training; you add it to an already balanced training program. For lighter yoke work, use a neck harness or do a neck flexion exercise.
