Tone The Back Of Your Arms

Rear Deltoids

The rear deltoid is the anterior, or back, of the shoulder that connects to the back of the arm. You can stress the back of the shoulder with light dumbbells, and specific pulley movements on a lat machine.


There are three muscle heads comprising the triceps on the back of the arm, which is how it got it’s name. The angle, and position of your hands, influence which muscle head is being stressed.
