Hi, my name is Alice Holland, and I'm going to go over why the back of your head would feel pressure after performing exercise. Some people have pressure in the back of their neck and the back of their head while performing exercise. This is usually due to faulty posture, and I'm going to give you some tips on how to avoid this. So, pain in the back of the head is usually due to straining of the neck muscles that originate at the base of the skull. Exercise that could injure this area could be stemming from lat pull downs, push ups, and abdominal curl ups, while doing, while performing them with bad form. With the lat pull downs, often times, people injure themselves by shrugging too much and looking up. Instead, what you should be doing is keeping the shoulders down, unshrugged, and the neck in a neutral position with the chin tucked in so you engage the core of the neck. With abdominal curl ups, a lot of people tend to tuck in their chin way too much and curl their necks, thereby straining the muscles of the back. What you wanna do, instead, is keep your chin gently tucked in and not curled forward, too much. With the push up, the head usually falls forward, again, straining the muscles of the shoulder. You wanna keep the neck nice and neutral. Again, chin, just slightly tucked in so you engage the core.
