Do you have a "turkey neck?" This excess flab underneath your chin is quite frustrating and can occur as you grow older.

It's all too relatable, so I've rounded up four exercises to get rid of your turkey neck.

If you look online, you may find facial and neck exercises claiming to reduce body fat around your neck. I, however, don't believe in spot reduction. Instead, I'm sharing the biggest bang-for-your-buck, hot-ticket exercises to melt saggy skin and fat all over your body.

Keep reading to learn more about how to get rid of your turkey neck. For the ultimate results, do these exercises together in a circuit, one after another, with minimal rest in between.


Mountain Climbers

The Mountain Climber is an incredible exercise to torch a lot of calories and jumpstart your metabolism. Even better, it requires no equipment and the technique is incredibly simple.

To set up, get into a pushup position. Keep your core tight, and lift each knee up toward your chest in an alternating way. (It's like you're sprinting in place.) Keep your head up and your hips low.

Walking Lunges

If you want to burn a lot of calories, the best place to start is with a total-body movement that works a lot of muscles all at once. Doing a lower-body exercise to get rid of your turkey neck might not seem related, but in reality, you have to target the fat all over your body for maximum results. Walking Lunges are perfect for that, no matter how long you've been training.

To begin, take a long step forward—long enough so that your knees make two 90-degree angles at the bottom. Then, pull yourself back up with your forward leg. Repeat on the other side, continuing to alternate.

Inverted Rows

Aside from excess fat, one major cause of a turkey neck is poor posture—especially rounded shoulders with a neck that's craned forward. To reverse this, strengthen the muscles in your upper back to help pull your shoulders back and move your neck into a better position (which is also great for your neck health).

To perform Inverted Rows, set a barbell on a power rack or Smith Machine. Grab the bar from underneath, pull yourself up, and touch your chest to the bar. Pin your shoulder blades together, and keep your body straight like a plank.


Kettlebell Swings

This is one of the best exercises to combine strength, power, and cardio. A Kettlebell Swing is an explosive total-body movement that torches a lot of calories so you can get leaner from head to toe.

Start in a deadlift position with the kettlebell a few feet in front of you. Then, hike the kettlebell back between your legs like a center in football, and explosively drive your hips forward. Imagine propelling the kettlebell to a target in front of you. Keep your arms relaxed.

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
