    compound VS isolation for MASS gains. the never ending opinion battle

    I feel hitting each muscle directly (isolation) works better because your able to focus on that muscle and that muscle only to give it a good burn!

    also I know everyones different but thats just what I think.

    whats ur opinion? why?

    Focus on compounds then a little bit of isolation to bring up weak points, and even though you may "feel" the muscles working better using isolation, compounds are still necessary because you have to convince your body to grow. Which do you think will convince your body to haul ass and make more muscle tissue (assuming your nutrition is on track) putting a 500 pound barbell on your back and going ATG with it, or curling 30 pound dumbbells? Lastly, the burn you feel in the muscle is just lactic acid buildup...it's not really an accurate indicator of a great workout.

    why not kill two birds with one stone. if u can do a compound to replace a couple isolations, seems pretty productive

    Upright or Bent Over Rows is pretty damn good for Biceps and Triceps.

    This is how I see compound exercises (some more then others but these are worked out to some extent):

    Bench Press - Tricep, Chest, Upper Back, Deltoids, Forearms, Biceps
    Squats - Core (hugely), Quads, Hamstrings, Calves (if you put plates underneath your feet), Lower Back, Hips

    Deadlift - Bicep, Core, Quads, Hamstrings, Calves, Lower Back, Upper Back, Forearms, and Chest to a certain extent

    Upright Rows or Bent Over Rows - Upper Back, Shoulders, Chest, Biceps, Triceps, and Deltoids

    Military Press - Tricep, Bicep, Shoulder, Deltoids, Upper Back, and I would think your upper pec.

    Those are the major ones. That's how I see it atleast. I may be wrong or I may have not added enough muscles but Compound exercises as a majority of your workout mixed with isolation exercises seems more reasonable. (Ex: 4 compounds; 2 isolations).

    Also most people wouldn't notice but High Cable Crossovers are a great way of hitting so many muscles. Deltoids, Shoulders, All of the Chest, Biceps, Triceps, and Forearms. Only problem is you can't go super heavy with it like a Bench so it isn't super great.

    I have been doing compounds followed by isolation. I do one day light and one day heavy, push/pull. So I train Bi's twice and Tri's twice, per week. And let me just say, my growth has been ****ing OUTSTANDING. I mean AWESOME.
    I have aweful genetics... a month ago, I thought my arms were disproportionately skinny. Now? My biceps are thicker and my triceps are more defined. I impress myself on a daily basis. I can't reccomend this enough.

    here are all of the arm-involved lifts I do... I lift 4 days a week, push/pull.

    5x Pendelay Row
    5x Pullups
    3x Curls

    4x Bench Press
    5x Incline Press
    4x BTN Press
    3x Decline Skullcrushers

    5x Chinups
    5x Pendelay Row
    6x Curls (Assorted)

    4x Bench Press
    5x Dips
    3x CGBP
    3x Decline Skullcrushers

    It's UriEl btw

    Things I will take any chance I get to make fun of:

    -HIT
    -Frank Zane as Mr. Olympia
    -Biceptz boyz
    -Fat powerlifters talking thrash about bodybuilding while claiming to close the #x gripper
    -Overtraining
    -"How can I look like >random 140lbs guy<?"
    -HIT
    -Self-righteous guys who try to make everybody sound racist.
    -Phil Heath for Mr. Olympia
    -Strength workouts for bodybuilding

    I'll keep updating the list.

    No... you don't have poor genetics. *sigh* Why is this hard to grasp? If you WERE skinny, and now you work out and have built muscle, THAT IS DUE TO YOUR GENETIC MAKEUP! You didn't "overcome" anything... you didn't climb a mountain, you didn't wrestle an alligator, you trained and built muscle. Like hundreds of thousands before you. I don't mean to wear you like a pair of hip waders, but honestly, this gets under my skin.

    For me, I think rep-ranges and incorporating compound movements as the major components of the workout, with isolation as the backdrop to my workout works best.
    Bench press - 175x4 (200)
    Dead lift - 355# (400)
    Squat - 4x225# x three sets (300)
    Military Press - 6x120# (BW)
    BB Row - 6x155# (175)

    Compound IMO is better for mass building,
    but muscles like the biceps might benefit more from isolation.
    IMO you will become stronger if you use compound more then isolation.

    yea, with all the excuses and scapegoats people use you wonder why they even try at all.
    On BB.com, you can: be a pedophile, talk about beating women, be a bigot, racist, constantly flame and call people all manners of names and phaggots, post half-naked women 24/7, threaten people IRL, etc.

    But making fun of some dead celebrity will get you banned. Go figure.

    Nope I just found what I bolded from what you said funny. But what you think about him doing superset iso's with his compound's. Since he wants to work hard to get big.

    I think you could sculpt Michaelangelo's David with nothing more than a thumb tack if you had the patience... But a hammer might not take as long. Either method would require you to be an artistic savant in order to accomplish. Most people can't muster up a masterpiece no matter what tools you give them.

    Am I being clear?

    Bmar22, do you know a guy called WayneLucky ? He's about the only 1 that would agree with you. If you want to build 'MASS' use compounds. If you want it to look like something or bring up weak points or weak lifts, ISOLATE.
    Bodybuilder, n. A weight lifter too weak to be a powerlifter.
    Powerlifter, n. A weight lifter too fat to be a bodybuilder.
    HIT Jedi, n. The fitness equivalent to Al Qaeda, except
    rather than fly planes into buildings, devotees fly
    steaming piles of dogmatic horse**** into your ears
    and down your throat.

    Every thing works..........for about 6 weeks.
