I think if you would take up gym work you would develop your neck and shoulders very nicely. Swimming has developed many pairs of beautiful shoulders. Here are two good exercises which will give your neck that swan-like appearance: Bend head down in front, place both hands, with fingers interlaced, on back of head. Now slowly bring the head back, resisting the movement by strong pressure with the hands. When the head has slowly forced its way back, place your hands under the chin and press against the forward bending of the head. Repeat backward and forWard.
