For the past couple of years, we’ve all spent a lot of time at home hunched over a computer or a mobile phone as we work from the comfort of our homes. Sometimes, your posture can suffer from that position, so it’s important to strengthen the muscle group that supports your upper body.

That’s where rear delt exercises come in: The rear deltoid muscles are key to helping you maintain proper posture and avoid slump-induced back pain.

What Are Rear Delts?

According to the Cleveland Clinic, your deltoid muscles are skeletal muscles that are in each of your shoulders—the ball and socket joints that connect your arms to the trunk of your body. They help you move your arms as well as protect and stabilize your shoulder joints. “This muscle helps maintain proper posture and is generally engaged in any type of pulling motion,” explains Liz Hilliard, trainer and creator and owner of the Hilliard Studio Method. “It acts as a shoulder stabilizer and should be strengthened and balanced with the anterior and medial deltoid for optimum shoulder health. Exercises to strengthen this muscle will improve your posture, keep you strong, balanced and less prone to shoulder injury.”
