    Exclamation Compound Movements.

    Is it possible to only train compound movements (Bench, Overhead press, barbell rows, squat, deadlift, power cleans) and still trigger hypertrophy and strength?

    It's already been said, but I'll say it again to convince you (and others who might be reading this thread):

    Absolutely.

    both sides made some good arguments, but my 2 cents, however unpopular, is that yes, absolutely they can

    Since they are the movements that use the most muscle mass, and have the biggest poundage potential for the muscle groups involved, they drive more hypertrophy and strength than trying to isolate everything.

    There is very little carryover to biceps from rows etc. So don't forget to curl. It is a basic movement, proven for over a century.

    If you include lots of close grip chins and parallel bar dips, you won't have proportionally small arms when everything else is getting bigger.

    Lift well and prosper.
