ARR. My first new post in what feels like years. I've stayed with TKD for the past year, but it was on the back burner. I got married 4/6/08, and I'm working on getting in physical shape so I can pass the physical for my black belt test in December and to also become a cop.

Now, for my issue. Whenever I do pushups or situps, my neck gets really tense, to the point that it is actually sore, but not actively hurting. I try to relax it out while on the mat, but I don't always have the time, and it doesn't always work. I will roll my head around and try to stretch it like I would a crick. Any ideas on how to release the tension?

I do a Pilates move that works very well for that exact pain. Start by laying on your back, with your hands at your sides. Bring your feet, hips, and back off the ground so your legs are pointing straight up. Now continue the motion over your head, so that your toes touch the ground over your head/shoulders. Then return to the start position. Nice and slow, about 10 reps should do ya fine.
