    compund movements vs isolation....

    not sure if my last question will be beneficial to me...

    for a mass surge, is it more advisable to go for the barbell compund movements all in one session or break the week down into isolation?
    may seem a broad question, but see a lot of conflicting views...

    for mass...., make squats, deads, and bench your core exercises each week....i would throw in some heavy BB rows in there as well

    so do core exercises, and build other isolations around them?

    Do body parts with compound and isolation movements mixed. Compounds are primary if your goal is mass

    I guess I do both at the same time. When ever I do my compound movement, or **** any movement for that matter, I try to isolate which ever muscle I'm using. I always do the bb first and then finish up with I guess what you would call Isolation like: dumbells or cables.
    But yeah the question is very broad.
    Do you mean Isolation like hammer machines or flys? Or both? Im kinda confused on that, not sure if I helped much.
    If you do some searching I'm pretty sure most of the people here think compound movements are the best. Not much of a conflict IMO.

    Agreed. Compound is king for mass and strength. Isolation is for shaping. You cannot shape muscle that is not there.
