why does it seem that the argument regarding the effectiveness of direct/isolation work only come about when it pertains to arm training? i haven’t seen a thread on here about not training legs, calves, forearms, traps and abs directly.
why are we continuing to have this debate time and time again?[/quote]
Because everybody accepts that squats build quads, and leg extensions isolate and help them.
However people continue to ACT like pull-ups and bench don’t work your arms at all.
Besides, your about to go on vacation next month, are you going to ask us about how to build your quad sweep for the girlies, or your biceps and abs?
