Double Chin Exercises
To Firm & Tone From
Your Chin To Your Chest


Get rid of your double chin and flabby neck with these simple, effective neck and double chin exercises that firm and tone the front and sides of your neck - from your jaw line to your chest.

Done standing or sitting, these neck and chin exercises are suitable for anyone, including the elderly.

The first exercise stretches the front part of your neck, throat and chin. The second one stretches the sides. Check with your health professional first though before trying any new exercises, particularly if you have a history of neck problems. Included below are links to other exercises on this site which also firm and tone your neck, chin and throat area.

Chin & Throat Stretch

Frontal Aspect

How

1. Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart. Bend your legs slightly and sink your weight down into them. Keep your back straight. Let your arms hang loosely by your sides.

Or sit on a firm but comfortable chair. Keep your back straight. Rest your hands on your thighs.

Place your lower lip on your top lip. Keep it there throughout the exercise.


2. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose as you slowly and gently raise your chin until you are looking directly above your head. If you're doing this outside on a bright day you may need to close your eyes as you look up.

Hold the position (and your breath) for a second or two.

Feel your throat and the front of your neck stretching.



3. Exhale (through your nose) as you slowly bring your head back down to the starting position.

That's one repetition. Take a slow, deep breath or two then commence another repetition.

Do 3 or 4 to begin. Build up to 10-15 repetitions, 2 or 3 times a day, or simply do the exercise for a few minutes each time.

Continue below to the second neck and double chin exercise.


Side Aspect

How

1. As per steps 1 and 2 above except that after raising your head straight up, turn it so that you are looking over your shoulder, then lower it so that your chin touches your shoulder.

Feel the side of your neck and throat stretching as you gently roll your head around and down.

As you turn your head keep your shoulders facing the front and don't lift them up.

Once again, hold the position for a second or two, then drop your head down towards your chest and around to face the front again.

Repeat, but this time after you raise your head turn it to the other side.

Do 3 or 4 stretches on each side. Build up to 10-15 per side, or simply do the exercise for a few minutes, 2 or 3 times a day.
