    mine is laying face down on an incline bench. it just takes the body english out of the bent over variety.


    probably one of the top 10 things i've learned since joining this forum.

    Y and T
    Just get into a leaning position or onto an incline bench and use your arms to make your body a T or a Y.

    Facepulls can hit this area pretty good too if you set your ROM right.

    Finally Blast Straps reverse flies will blow your rear delts up pretty good.

    Those are my favorite. My shoulders are the hardest to get really sore doing these really hits them hard.

    Reverse peck deck, with the correct angle

    Lying reverse fly, face down on bench at an incline and reverse fly with solid emphasis on the rear dealt..

    My fav are the no rest supersets after upright rows. After an upright row set, ill bend over, hold on to the rack and do one handed rear delt laterals. Since i dont rest after the UR row set, by the time im done with the rears lateral sets, im toasted. 4 sets for that then rev. pec dec machine. I like that machine alot too.
