Read again what I said.
Then read the articles here.
Isolation has it’s place, but depending on your goals, it’s value is very, very relative, even for bodybuilding training.
And no, this isn’t a bodybuilding-only site.
But everything works … for a while.
That said, I like one-arm chins and other variations for biceps, and the occasional hammer curl.[/quote]
My point is that you understand where they’re coming from, which I know you do when you read these articles.[/quote]
I very rarely read the training articles on this site. In fact, reading that one article when Chirag pointed it out may have been the first in years.
And which was the answer to what you said, literally. [/quote]
No, it wasn’t. I said that no one should exclude all isolation movements for no reason. That wasn’t a question.
You said that you couldn’t understand why they would, well, in the articles it is said why. The person starting this thread acknowledged he felt about the points made in these articles, and I don’t necessarily agree with that.[/quote]
In the one article I have read on putting a compound exercise routine together, it was said to NOT avoid all isolation exercises. Where are the articles telling you to avoid any and all isolation movements? Hell, even if they exist, why do you think this is the best thing to do?
I agree with the fact that everything works … for a while.[/quote]
I have been training essentially the same way for over 5 years (after only occasionally changing my routine the first five years). It still works.
Don’t turn a simple answer into a demented discussion simply because of the lack of expression on the internet, it’s as pointless as the claims made and drooled over on many a discussion forum.[/quote]
That was deep. Let me try:
“He who never works biceps will never achieve his absolute true potential in biceps size.” I doubt that will fit into a fortune cookie…but then, who here has the goal of actually fitting well into things?
