    Rear Delt Rows and Lateral Deltoids

    How much lateral deltoid involvement in Rear Delt Rows? Is it enough to stimulate growth? I'm looking for a pull exercise (DB or Barbell) that hits the lateral delts to substitute upright rows.

    Shoulders are a push muscle not a pull, bro Try military press DB or BB or DB lateral raises
    Soreness is weakness exiting the body.

    shoulders are a push muscle but rear delts can be stimulated very well by the right fly, and pull exercises.

    ah ok also one more thing face pulls look to be the same exercise as the rear delt row. wierd seems the only diffrence is how high you pull the cable.

    Face pulls sound interesting. I might give it a try. I prefer compound exercises that can be done with either dumbbells and/or barbells though.

    yeh rear delts get worked well with pulling exercises, thats why i dont really isolate them. but if i was to do a isolation exercise for them, such as rear delt flys is it best to do it on my pull day, or on my push day with the other delts.

    i like to do my rear delts on my back day. since the rear delts do seem to get good stimulation from working traps, rhomboids, and the terus. i figure its best to break down my shoulders into sections to avoid over training. also to avoid injury.

    90% of the exercises mentioned hardly stimulate the lateral delts. No need for isolation though.

    if they dont get worked from those exercises and there is no need to isolate them, then how are they going to grow.
