  • What is that camel's hump on back of some guy's necks?

    When aq guy is in contest shape and he has a big knob on the back of his neck, where the neck meets the shoulders, is that a drug side effect? Some guys have them sometimes, like Dexter or Arnold in Pumping Iron, then don't. Looks like a camel's hump/ What is that?

    I have heard it's a side effect from steroids.

      Probably just C8 sticking out out due to genetics.

        Thing is it is too big and fatty loking to be a vertebrae. Also, sometimes a guy will have it, then not (removed surgically?).

            It`s from squatting....bar resting on vertebrae.

              It may be from the vertebrae becoming irritated from the BAR pressing against that area.

                  You can get it, by chronically placing your neck into certain positions then exerting force or pressure on your c spine. Say chronically bending your neck forward, and then applying pressure or load from the posterior direction.

                  In addition, sometimes depending on the condition, its called Dowegers hump, you see it in conditions of osteoporosis:

                  Definition of Dowager's hump



                  Dowager's hump: An abnormal outward curvature of the vertebrae of upper back. Compression of the front (anterior) portion of the involved vertebrae leads to forward bending of the spine (kyphosis) and creates a hump at the upper back. Dowager's hump is due to osteoporosis changes in the thoracic spine. It may affect men or women. Like most osteoporotic changes, it is often preventable.

                          I don't know...I google image searched Dowager's hump and the pics I saw aren't what Johnnie, Dexter, et. al. sport. Spoek to a nurse who works with AIDs patients today who is familiar with this, claims some get it from excessive GH use (?).

                            I never used GH and I have one, a decent amount of juice but no GH.

                              I never have used any GH.
                              Never used juice either.

                              I had it once, it went away on its own.

                              Like others have already commented, I think it results from bar pressure against your neck when you squat.
