- Lie chest down on elevated bench. Grasp dumbbells below.
- Keeping upper arm perpendicular to torso and dumbbells just
below elbows, pull dumbbells up until elbows are just above shoulders.
Return and repeat.
- If upper arm travels closer than perpendicular to trunk,
becomes involved. Elbows should be raised directly lateral to
shoulders. Bench should be just high enough to prevent dumbbells
from hitting floor and close to horizontal. Also see exercise
performed on Lying
Rear Delt Apparatus. Lying at 45° is not sufficient angle
to target rear deltoids. Much lighter resistance is required
as Dumbbell Lying Row.
