What's ideal? I'm trying to get a thicker neck but I'm not sure how many reps I should do.

Currently I do 3x20 neck extensions and 3x20 neck raises

never ever go below 15 which isnt needed and also dangerous.

start with bodyweight and then use a weight plate heavy enough to perform 30reps

Alright so I should keep doing 3x20 and slightly increase the weight overtime?

Med- high reps. You also need some form of progressive overload to maximize hypertrophy, assuming you're natty.

If you can add 5reps per day you're not training hard enough

its not about training hard with neck just pump blood and let it grow everyday.volume and frequency is key. no need for high intensity.

it grows super quick due to high bloodflow also.

but best neck training is olympic lifting. when i was training i had really good delt trap and neck area just because of snatches and cleans.

Hmm cool. What's the ideal circumference for neck?
I used to go to failure with neck bridges

dont really know bro sorry but going to failure with bridges are okay i think if you have enough skill and experience at the movement otherwise it would be dangerous
