    This is not an isolation exercise per se, but Vince Gironda used to recommend doing seated pulley rows with a straight handle (palms down) pulling the bar to the lower pec line-keeping the chest concave to work the teres.

    Yeah, the teres major and lats work together on everything. As for the teres minor, it's part of the rotator cuff, so you could look up exercises for that.

    On page 112 of 'strength training workout II' Frederic delavier gives a great teres major isolation exercise, which I do as a to failure 100 rep warm up once a week.

    In the book are pictures with 2 options: one with and without an adjustable vertical pulley.

    #1) set the adjustable one arm pulley at mid height to your elbow height, when your arm is flat along your body. Face 90 degrees away from the pulley. Do not face the pulley. With the arm nearest the pulley, Rotate your arm out at 90 degrees to grab the weight while the elbow is touching your body side. Then pull the weight with your hand going to where your elbow was at your side and let the elbow go out to the side, kind of how superman stands with fists into sides and elbows out. Hold 2 seconds then release slow. Elbow back to the side of your body. That's one rep.
