Hello fellow T-Nation posters,
I recently started working rear delts again after shoulder issues had me leaving them alone for a long time. In retrospect, my shoulder issues were probably due to training front and medial delts and very rarely training rear delts.
However, my questions are as follows:
What exercises does everyone do for rear delts?
The only exercises I know and do are bent over laterals and face pulls.
How do you avoid your traps doing the brunt of the work?
Every time I do face pulls or bent over laterals I feel most of the contraction in my traps. Is there anything to do to avoid the traps doing all the work? Maybe pre-exhaust them?
Thoughts? Thanks in advance.
