Let’s face it, muscle is sexy and muscle is what gives the body shape. Whether your male or female, there’s nothing sexier than a sculpted back.
One of my favorite exercises for the back are bent over, rear delt dumbbell flys. The rear delts are located near your shoulder blades. This exercise is also great for improving your posture helping to pull your shoulders back, rather than your shoulder rounding forward.
When performing this exercise, you want to keep your back flat while you’re bent over, keeping a slight bend in your knees and you want to keep your abs tight. As you fatigue, you will find yourself starting to stand up and you don’t want to do this or you will be working your shoulders laterally, which is a different exercise. If you find yourself not able to maintain this position, take a 30 second rest and continue the exercise.
In the starting position you want your arms to be nice and straight, keeping those elbows locked. You want to bring your arms up exhaling as you bend the elbows at a 90 degree angle. As you bring your arms back to the starting position, inhale and exhale as you bring your arms back to the ending position.
You can watch my demonstration of how to do this exercise in the video below.
