How much do you think your head weighs?
Clue: a lot. About 6.8 kilograms (15 lbs). For comparison, the average cabbage weighs around 1.1 kg (2.43 lbs). Bowling balls max out at 7.27 kg (16 lbs).
This blows my mind.You are carrying something the weight of a bowling ball around on top of your neck all day. Chances are you’re also thrusting it down and forward while playing the cello.
Explains why your neck hurts, doesn’t it?
