Yes, definitely. Training for a cut, if you already are, is painful. The muscles are threatening to tear through the skin. It's addictive though.
Anything that creates 'pump' is good for 'cut' training.
10 sets pullups, 10 sets dips, 10 sets squats.
Gains require myofibrillar fibers utilization.
5 sets onwards should be suffice. Any rep/set scheme would do.
It depends on your goal:
If you want to improve your technique, try compound -> isolation.
If you want to improve your strength/neural connection, try isolation -> compound
I think it's the stupidest idea on earth. But hey, if it works right.
