Isolation Exercises: Back, Quads, Hams

I’m doing CT’s HSS-100 (original) and I need help with the isolation exercises for the supersets. What are some good isolation exercises for back, quads, and hams?

I don’t know much about that program. That being said;

  1. Back isolation;

Straight-arm pulldowns, cross-bench pullovers with 1 dumbbell or one in each hand, straight bar or ez curl bar, machine pullover like Nautilus or other, newer machines.

  1. Quads isolation;

Leg extensions, sissy squats.

  1. Hamstring isolation;

Lying leg curls, standing leg culrs, seated leg curls.

Does that help?

hams - leg curl
quads - leg extension
back (lats) - straight arm pulldown
edit: didn’t see derek’s post when I wrote that

I think front squats could count as quadriceps isolation exercises.

Nope.

Sissy squats however come much closer.
