    face pulls, love them. go light and concentrate on MMC!

    lay on bench on side and hold 5-10# wt and lift. kind of like a bent over raise but because you are lying on your side you take out the cheater muscles. (a great one that i have only done once :eek: but it really gets a good burn)

    I like face pulls till I hit myself in the nose, now I love them!

    I also lay flat on an incline bench instead of bent over BD laterals, I do them on the incline bench so I can concentrate on them.

    they are a fantastic exercise. i didnt believe that they could work, seemed too easy but dang, they will make the rear delts burn like no other!

    I like face pulls, rear delt flys and these...



    Except I don't use the handle, I just grab the cable.

    I'm gonna get ripped to shreds for this one but here goes - BEHIND THE NECK PRESSES!!!! Someanddone's spidey sense is alerting him to my post and he's gonna come scold me for this lol :D

    Hang cleans blast my rear delts and traps more gooder than the presses. Face pulls are nice too.

    I had my best results with heavy bent over rear delt DB raise with cheat. I do up to 90lbs x 6 on these and I usually do them before press. the trick is to keep elbows bent and pull the dbs out and slightly forward, not back as it'll just work lats.
