Rear Delt Flys

Along with the front and lateral raises, working your shoulders without pressing weight overhead is a great way to practice low impact work for your shoulders. Using your delts to raise weight against the pull of gravity, allows your shoulder to stretch and squeeze safely with minimal joint irritation or engagement. This movement is best used once your shoulder are warmed up from presses

This movement can be done sitting or standing, hinging at the waist so that your back is parallel to the ground. Start with the weights straight down under you. Using your rear delts, squeeze you shoulders to bring the weights up to parallel with the floor. It’s crucial that you don’t swing or use momentum to move the weights.
