Shoulder Exercises – Butterfly Reverse

Again the rear delts? What about my front?  Don’t worry, your frontal shoulders are covered at your chest day. But aren’t my rear delts involved in my Back training? Indeed, if you do the correct exercises with the correct technique. And to elude that “if”, we have another rear delt exercise here.

  • Sit on the machine pad seat, facing the pad. Arrange the seat height so that the handles are level with your shoulders.
  • Grasp the handles.
  • Pull back, keeping your elbows level with your hands. Bring your shoulder blades together.
  • Hold for 1-2 seconds, then release slowly back to the starting position.

By holding your hands higher than the elbows you can isolate your shoulders more from the back.
