Hey guys, I just created an account here (but I’ve been reading the articles for a looooong time. I love this site!), and I was just wanting to see how many of you guys don’t do isolation exercises for your arms.
I love that arm pump you get after supersets of curls and triceps work… but what I love even more is going heavy (heavy for me, light for you, probably) on bigger compound exercises.
For example, heavy weighted chins for low reps would replace curls. Heavy bar dips to replace triceps isolation. Etc.
I’m currently on an upper-lower split, and I have 3 total arm isolation exercises in the routine: incline curls and incline hammers, and Overhead Triceps Extensions.
I just have this nagging voice in the back of my mind that tells me I need more isolation exercises, but I’ve always heard that compounds give you the most bang for your buck!
