You may not have seen this variation for rear delt raises before but it’s one of our favourite go-to’s when training rear delts.
We would usually program these for 3 to 4 sets and anywhere between 12 to 20 reps. If you’re really lucky it would be programmed with an extended drop-set!

In this video, we’re going to be teaching you how to do rear delt raises using a bench. So this is the way I like to do it. There’s a few ways to really hit your rear delts, but this is why we’re going to do it in this program is you’re going to use a bench like this and you’re going to go up on a 30 degree angle and you’re going to pull that down as well. Actually, let’s make that a 15 degree angle just because the 30 degree angle won’t work as well. So grab the dumbbells, their knees are on the floor, that’s perfect on the bench there. So this is the position you want to take when doing the readouts. Now common mistake that people make when doing the readouts is they don’t use the readouts. So do a dual movement. They use that back so they come back way too far.
So when we’re doing this, what we were looking for is we want jade’s elbows to be in line with her ears. So she is going to come out in a prone position. So pronated and her elbows are going to be a little higher. Jade, that’s perfect there. And again, so from I’m queuing someone, I’m not even standing in their way and I’ll say to Jay, don’t hit me so her elbows have to be in line with her ear. And again, we want pronated position. They’re so hands are facing down a perfect, very good and it wouldn’t be doing this. We can hold it at the top. So you can see when jade comes up, she’s really using and you want to, you want to imagine like she’s tipping cups of Water Dam and you can see her readouts now. Really engaging. So back up, we’ll just do three more for the camera so you can see this, but you can see your rear delts really engaging. That’s two and one more. Perfect. And that’s how you want to do it. That’s it. It’s a perfect readout right there. Really we engage again, keeping the hand’s pronated as you come up, come up as high as you can. Really engage that.
