4. Dumbbells should be held close together (but not touching) with palms facing in.

Movement

Dumbbell Rear Delt Raises Movement

1. Maintain a neutral spine and a straight back.

2. Keep your head mostly down, but look ahead (don't strain your neck to look up).

3. Abduct shoulders transversely to lift arms up and out until upper arms are parallel to the floor.

4. Squeeze the back delts and upper back with a pause at the top.

5. Return to the starting position by slowly lowering the arms.

6. Repeat the motion as many times as necessary.

7. Because this exercise is best done in a moderate to high rep range, I recommend staying between 8-15 reps.

Benefits

Dumbbell Rear Delt Raises Benefits

The rear lateral raise isolates the deltoid in your back. This muscle is targeted to help strengthen, tone, and stabilize your shoulders and upper body. Deltoids that are strong aid in pressing, pulling, and overhead movements. This makes it easier to complete athletic and daily activities while also lowering your risk of injury.
