Exercize for Rear Delts
I don't have a rear delt machine at my gym, so I need to perform some other type of exercize for my rear delts. Can anyone recommend a good exercize that really hits the rear delts?

Thanks Diesel. Also, Do behind the neck presses work the rear delts at all?

Behind the neck presses will give you a nice foward head, and youll be walking around looking like a turtle in a few years. Wide grip seated rows are good for rear delts. Also what diesel said works good, do both. I do rear delts on back day, many popular back exercises hit the rear delts pretty well. Good luck.

My favorite is the following:
Take an incline bench and lay on it. (your chest in the pad)
Let your arms hang to the side holding dumbells.

Use the cables. Grab the bottom ones bend over and do your rear delts like you would with db's. Just pull and sqeeze. I have done these three weeks in a row and have been sore avery week. High reps.

My rear delts get enough work from my back training.

seated rows, reverse pec deck, overhead cable pullovers

Do you have a pec deck machine at your gym. If so, simply use that machine for your rear delts. Many trainers uses this machine in the seated position but I prefer standing. Place your chest against the back pad and rest your chin on the top of the pad. Pull the bars out to your side as you would normally do when doing pec flies. Only you're using your rear shoulder strength rather than your frontal shoulder strength.
If you don't have the pec deck machine, the bent rear lat raise using db or cables are great (as many have suggested in earlier posts). If you have a problem keeping your back straight during the exercise, try resting your head against the front of a preacher curl machine when doing this exercise.
