Balance It Out
If you need to bring up your rear delts, here is what I suggest.
You’re smart to put rear delts first, but you should also put them last. Bookending the workout with weak-point training increases the volume while allowing enough recovery in between to keep the intensity high. Also, with bent-over laterals, keep your shoulder blades pulled together to keep the tension on your rear delts without letting your upper back take over.
Quick Tip: There is no need to go higher than 90 degrees on lateral raises, as that brings your traps into the movement.
