    Rear delts?

    For some reason I've always neglected rear delt work, cos' I assumed that with chins and rows they'd get worked enough. But I've noticed that they're quite popular amongst gym goers, so I was thinking about throwing in some rear lateral raises.
    Are rear lateral raises an important exercise?

    If all you do is bench and curl then you may benefit from rear delt work, otherwise I wouldnt ad it.
