I think isolation exercises are great to use after you've done the compound ones that build core strength. I'm one of the few people who does squats, deadlifts, and chins in my gym regularly, but you do see tons of people doing cable crossovers, cable curls, and bench presses using machines and pulleys.
Bench presses are great, but not doing the other stuff leads to people looking like storks or walking pectorals.
Haven't done deadlifts in ages, so I thought I'd work up slowly to my former lifts.
Here are my sets:
1*6 reps ( 135lbs )
1*6 reps ( 175lbs )
1*6 reps ( 205lbs )
1*6 reps ( 225lbs )
1*6 reps ( 245lbs )
1*6 reps ( 265lbs )
1*6 reps ( 285lbs )
1*6 reps ( 300lbs )
Then there was a charitable campaign thing at work, so I went and played sports for a few hours. I wonder how my back's gonna feel in the morning.
I feel it a bit now. A bit tight, but it should loosen up at the beach. Going to make sand castles and crap with my little lad.
They don't cure AIDS - they don't cure shit. The money ain't in da cure. It's in da medicine!
You only have to look at Usain Bolt to see that tall, mesopmorph guys are pretty fucked in the legs dept.
Even my missus calls me 'pernas de frango' - chicken-legs.
You can still make them more defined. It's hard to believe you can't build thigh mass with a good nutrition and squat specialization program. Squats are the best exercise a person can do.
