Cable Seated Rear Lateral Raise
This exercise involves sitting on a cable machine and using the cables to perform a rear lateral raise, which targets the muscles in the back of the shoulders. The movement involves pulling the cables out to the sides and back, while keeping the arms straight and the shoulders down.

- Adjust the cable machine to the appropriate height and attach a D-handle to the cable.
- Sit on the bench facing the cable machine with your feet flat on the ground.
- Grasp the D-handle with one hand and place your other hand on the bench for support.
- Keeping your arm straight, lift the D-handle out to the side until your arm is parallel to the ground.
- Slowly lower the D-handle back down to the starting position.
- Repeat for the desired number of repetitions and then switch arms.
