cervical pain?

I seem to have an ache right around c7-t1. It also seems that the these two bones protrude farther out than the rest of my spine in that area. The pain does not present itself during any particular excercise-but it has come with starting to do face pulls and some Ys and Ts for upper back stuff. I have a bad habit of jutting my head forward when the weight gets heavy on these excercises, I think that may be the culprit.
Anyone have a similar experience or advice?

Re: cervical pain?

umm... C7 just out on everybody, T1 shouldn't, but it might enough to be noticable.

Fix your bad habit. It's bad for the same reason that it's bad to deadlift with your lumbar spine in flexion.

Re: cervical pain?

K thanks. It may be c6 and 7 that feel outward and not t1. Not 100% on that.
I do need to fix my habit. Perhaps keep the weight lighter, although I feel like my traps can handle more.
