Seated Bent-Over Dumbbell Laterals

Here we work the rear delts.  These muscles are usually a neglected area.  However, they give your shoulders an unbelievable 3d look from all angles.

Implementation: (
A) Either standing or seated  on the end of a bench or stool,  take a hold of a dumbbell in each hand.  Lean foreword from your waist and bring the dumbbells together behind your calves.  Have your palms facing each other. (B)  With your body still, raise the weights out To either side, turning your wrists so that the rear of the dumbbell is higher than the front.  Don't swing your body, let your rear delts lift the weight.  With your arms just slightly bent, raise the dumbbells a bit higher than your head, then, not moving the rest of your body, lower the weight again under control to behind your calves, resisting all the way down.  Raise the weight straight out to either side; the tendency doing this exercise is to let the weights drift back behind your shoulders, this makes the back work more than the rear delts.
