Reverse flyes are a simple rear delt and upper back exercise you can do at home – if you do it right and make the most of the limited range of motion.
Sometimes also called “rear lateral raises,” the main muscle the reverse fly targets is the rear delt.
But as synergists you get a number more working along: the middle and upper traps, the lateral delts, the rhomboids and the infraspinatus.
In short, it’s a nice little exercise that gets your rear delts up to speed, yet provides benefits to the whole area. Key with it is to use the right weight and make the most of the little ROM you get:
Can You Do Them Standing?
Yes, you can. But I find keeping good form much harder that way, because I have to concentrate on keeping my balance and not moving the upper body. Of course, gauge your mileage and pick whatever is more comfortable to you.
