Suspended Back Fly

The standing suspended rear delt fly is a bodyweight movement targeting the shoulders and upper back, using a suspension strap system or gymnastics rings. It can be performed for time or reps as part of a dynamic warm-up for an upper body strength workout, or in the workout itself, either in traditional muscle-building rep ranges or for higher reps.


  1. Strengthens the rear deltoids, rhomboids, lower traps, and other important postural muscles
  2. Excellent way to boost pull-to-push ratio to an upper body workout
  3. Can be easy scaled upward or downward by standing more or less upright
