The reverse flye with the frontal plane lunge is an exercise where we combine the frontal plane movement of the lower body, which creates a reaction at the shoulder blade of the scapula, which then allows us to challenge the posterior shoulder girdle muscle against the tubing. Start by stepping out with your left leg in the frontal plane. Once you land and load that hip, the arm should come back. You'll want your momentum moving in the frontal plane, causing a scapular reaction as you do this. Keep the elbows reasonably extended to keep the lever nice and long, which increases the torque back at the posterior shoulder aspect.
