    The rear delts, Rhomboids, traps, etc. all drastically improve posture. It'll square your shoulders up/keep them from slumping forward. It will definitely make your shoulders broader and improve things.

    I have always thought that traps would improve with holding the shoulders correctly more so than rear delts.

    If working the rear delts keeps that area in balance with the rest of the delt area (front, sides) then it can only help with posture (and preventing injury etc)
    If it doesn't move, I'm eating it.....If it moves, I'm killing it then eating it

    Whole upper back needs to be adequately developed to improve posture.

    Reverse Peck Deck and Face pulls with rope helped me build back a stronger rear shoulder since it is pretty week from rotator cuff surgery year or so ago. I try to focus on mostly on back than shoulders and litttle on chest. Got alot of posture fixing to do from back in the day lifting stupid doing bench presses and curls all the time like a moron. Wish i could talk to the young me now an tell him hes a choad.

    Also try external and internal rotations they make my rear delt/shoulder joint feel strong!

    I had never thought about the impact of rear-delt work on posture. Even if a person doesn't lift, I can't imagine her/him having rear-delts that are under-developed enough to hurt her/his posture.

    Maybe it's me, but the point that's being illustrated here doesn't seem to pop out.

    Work your entire upper back. Do Pendlay rows, face pulls and bentover shrugs. Also make it a habit of relaxing your shoulders and puffing your chest out. You want to look straight ahead when you walk. Not down.

    Spot on, Lu. Good posture is a function of not only back strength and front/back proportion, but is a function of the conscious mind.

    At first, it takes effort and will to have posture that is different than what you are used to feeling normal. It's not just going to magically happen if you build up any individual or set of muscles.
