Your shoulders get a lot of indirect work in the gym, and with many daily physical activities, but one commonly neglected area is the rear deltoid. This is true for both men and women.
It isn’t unusual to see a guy who is noticeably muscular in the upper chest and back, but the back of his shoulders are noticeably soft.
If you look in the mirror and notice the back of your shoulders are a little soft and squishy, you may want to add some direct rear deltoid work to your routines.
You Don’t Need A Lot Of Weight
The rear deltoid is a very small muscle group so you really don’t want to try and punish them with heavy weight. You want to focus on proper form and stimulating the muscle with every rep.
If your form is sloppy, or you use too much weight, you’re more likely to use your back or trapezius muscles instead of your rear deltoid. Here’s a quick list of the best exercises for your rear deltoids.
