Rear delt raise is the name given to an exercise that isolates the rear deltoid muscles. The rear deltoids are the small muscles that sit at the back of your shoulder, and rear delt raises are a great way to build them up.

Instructions:

Sit down on a bench, with your feet flat on the ground. Make sure that your back is straight and that your head is looking forward. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and a weight in each hand (or use a weight machine).

Hold a weight in each hand, with your arms hanging down by your sides. Bend your elbows and raise the weights out to the sides, keeping your palms facing down.

Slowly lift your arms towards the ceiling, until they are parallel to the floor. Hold for a second, and then slowly lower them back to the starting position.

Start by standing with your feet hip-width apart, and hold a weight in each hand.

Bend your elbows slightly and raise your arms out to the sides until they are parallel with the floor.

Hold for a second, then slowly lower them back to the starting position.

Make sure that you maintain a straight back throughout the exercise, and do not let your shoulders slump forwards. Also, be careful not to swing your arms up and down – keep them under control at all times.

Repeat this movement 10-15 times.

Tips:

If you find this exercise difficult, start with a lighter weight until you get used to the movement.

You can also do rear delt raises standing up if you prefer. Pause for a second at the top of the lift and then slowly lower them back down.

To make the exercise more challenging, try doing it with one arm at a time.

You can also increase the intensity of this exercise by adding a little bit of momentum – i.e. lifting your arms quickly and then lowering them slowly. But be careful not to swing your arms around, as this can put unnecessary stress on your shoulders.

Finally, make sure that you keep your core muscles tight throughout the exercise, this will help to keep your back straight.

Variations:

You can also do rear delt raises while sitting down. Sit with your knees bent and lean forward slightly, then raise your arms out to the sides as described above.

Another variation is to do rear delt raises with one arm at a time. This will make the exercise more challenging.

You can also do rear delt raises with cables or resistance bands.

You can also do rear delt raises sitting down, which is a bit easier. Sit with your back straight, legs together, and feet flat on the floor. Hold a weight in each hand and raise them out to the sides until your arms are parallel to the floor. Pause for a second and then slowly lower them back down. You can also do rear delt raises standing up if you prefer. Pause for a second at the top of the lift and then slowly lower them back down. To make the exercise more challenging, try doing it with one arm at a time.

Benefits:

The exercise is simple and can be done with no equipment required. It can be done at home or in the gym. It is a good exercise for women as well as men. The rear delts play an important role in shoulder stability and strength. The exercise can help to improve your posture and reduce the risk of injury.

Rear delt raises are a great way to build up the rear deltoid muscles, which can help improve your posture and make your shoulders look broader. They also work the rotator cuff muscles, which can help keep your shoulder joints healthy. They also help to improve shoulder stability and strength.

Conclusion:

If you want to build up your rear deltoid muscles, rear delt raises are a great exercise to try. They can be done using weights or a weight machine and can be performed either standing or sitting down. Start with 12-15 reps and work your way up to 3 sets of 15 reps and work your way up to more as you get stronger.
