Rear Delt Raise - Hyper Extension Form

Hyper Extension Form

  • Dumbbell hyperextension row start

  • Dumbbell hyperextension row end

Another option for doing a raise to target the posterior deltoid is hyperextending the glenohumeral joint. The lat is no longer an extensor at this point, so it is primarily the posterior deltoid and long head of the triceps that perform hyperextension. The range of motion for this is very limited, most people can't even hyperextend 45 degrees. This is also a static-active stretch for the anterior deltoid and biceps.

A compound variation is a behind the back row. This row, when performed with a barbell, has also been called a rear delt raise.

Famous quotes containing the words form and/or extension:

    In many places the road was in that condition called repaired, having just been whittled into the required semicylindrical form with the shovel and scraper, with all the softest inequalities in the middle, like a hog’s back with the bristles up.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The desert is a natural extension of the inner silence of the body. If humanity’s language, technology, and buildings are an extension of its constructive faculties, the desert alone is an extension of its capacity for absence, the ideal schema of humanity’s disappearance.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
