You can perform the lateral neck flexion in different range of motions. Start by facing forward and stretch your neck, moving your head towards your chest then towards your left and right shoulders, then moving your chin towards your left and right shoulders. The lateral neck flexion stretch helps increase the flexibility and strength of your neck muscles. “The cross-legged neck stretch is a great stretch that can be done throughout the day whether you're at work or about to start/finish a workout,” according to Movement Specialist Joshua Holland. “It's great in that it helps to open up the hips and provides relief to the neck muscles especially after long durations at the computer or on the phone.”
