Hi everyone,

after some time of no strength training I am back to bodyweight stuff. I notice that on my 3rd set of pushups though the muscles in the back of my neck start to feel like they are working (where they should not). I have noticed this in the past when i have been stronger doing bench press: a tendency to start to feel strain in the back of the neck.

Does anyone know what might be going on here? If so, is there a way to test/verify and a suggested solution?

Right now I am planning on just stopping the pushups when this starts to happen, concluding that it is poor recruitment due to not being strong in the right areas for the movement but I'd appreciate some advice!

Many thanks,
