    Rear Lateral Raise vs. Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press

    So which is better?

    Question

    They are not even in the same ball field. One is a compound intended on beefing up the entire shoulder complex. While the other is an iso intended for bring up a specific weakpoint which is the rear delts. There is NO "vs" here to speak of.

    They're 2 different exercises working 2 different muscles, why ask which is better?

    Rear Lateral Raises work your Posterior Deltoids (the back ones) and Seated Dumbbell Press works your Anterior Deltoids (the front ones)

    Nobody's having a go at you, just trying to help you so that you don't think that both exercises do the same thing. Oh and if you HAD to choose 1 exercise out of the two then I'd go with the Dumbbell Press as it's a compound exercise and will pack more muscle on than the Rear Lateral Raise.

    Although, thinking about it, you "COULD" if you wanted to, choose the rear delt raises as your anterior deltoids get hit from other exercises such as Bench Press. That's only if your rear delts are lacking though.

    For HST, IMO, keep the Db Shoulder Press for every workout. Rear laterals (side or rear) can be alternated from workout to workout or put at the end of the workout. But do NOT replace the shoulder presses with the rear laterals.

    Edit- Perhaps u could use it as a supersetting exercise as well. No harm in that.

    Exercises are never just plain 'better'. Some are better for certain goals, and certain stages of training. Actually I'm shutting up, this is just a bump, because DiamonDelt said it best.
