Grab your big towel again: we’ll be training your rear delts with this exercise and take some other important muscles along for the ride!
Suspended Rear Delt Rows
Despite the name, this exercise not only trains your rear delts.
No, it’s a compound that also gives work to your traps, forearms and rotator cuff (you know, the group of small shoulder muscles that has so much to go through when you do bench presses).
Just like with the suspended rows for general back training, gyms let you do these with specialized machinery. And again we come up with a simple home version that works just as well:
As with the other suspended rows I showed you, you need to make that everything you use for the exercise can handle your weight: the towel and the bar, beam or hook you hang it from!
Do not do these with a bar pull-up bar that’s wedged into the door frame! Before your head hits the floor, you’d be able to marvel at the interesting trajectory the bar embarks when flying out of the frame and how far bits of it will follow in the bar’s footsteps!
