Packing the Neck and Swimming: Part I

This week's installment in the Elite Characteristics series at Swimming Science brings us to the neck.  Specifically, we explore the concept of "packing the neck," a term popularized in the strength and conditioning lexicon by Dr. Charlie Weingroff.  The packed neck is one of my favorite topics, and if you follow our facebook page you get a steady dose of packed neck examples from the world's most powerful athletes.  Most swim coaches understand the importance of neutral head position, but does the swimming world appreciate how powerful the packed neck can be?
