Abstract:     A neck exercise device that is used for isometric, isokinetic and isotonic exercises. The device includes a pair of aligned bars spaced by a joining bar, the aligned bars being bent so that the user may grasp the bars both in front of and to the rear of the body, thereby providing exercise for the back, front and sides of the neck. An elastic cord depends from the aligned bars, and alternatively the elastic cord is coupled to foot stirrups and then to handgrips for exercising with a walking-type motion.
