DAY 271: Light lifting. Neck needs rest

I strain my neck often when I lift weights. I thought I was using my accessory muscles but it may be just that I am lifting a lot heavier than I should. My neck has not recovered since the last barbell lifting exercises. Hence, I decided not to just it but lighten the weights a bit to allow my muscles more sufficient time to rest.

Reps Sets Exercise Weight
1 10 5 Barbell shoulder press 5kg
2 10 5 Bent over row 37kg
3 10 5 Pull ups
4 10 5 Push ups

Why does my neck hurt from weight lifting? Check out this site for further explanation.
