There's really no such thing as a better one here. Both have their advantages. Compound exercises are great since they would involve other muscle groups. Isolation exercises are great for a more specific, targeted area. Both have their places in any workout program.

Hey guys. I suggest do bodyweight training coz by doing pullups, pushups, dips and squats will make you strong for your weight. And eventually lalakas din kayo to add weight in those lifts. You can also do isolation exercises using bodyweight like tricep extensions and bar curls for biceps

Body weight training is good and can be a good start for those getting into fitness. However, body weight training doesn't have progressive overload, which is essential for building larger muscles. It can be good for definition, but not mass. The best is to combine body weight training with training with equipment. For example, I still do push-ups every now and then even if I do flat bench presses most of the time. I also do pull ups and chin ups for my lats in place of a lat machine since I have yet to take care of the lat machine cables here at home.

Try mo yung 8×8 program sa triceps mo. 8sets 8 reps, 15-30 secs rest lang in between sets.


Natakot ako sa sets nya! Hehehe.

Sige po, try ko. Thanks!

I still go for compound exercises or drill type exercises. For example, buhat balde, lagay sa balikat, akyat stairs set it down. do it continously for 20 min. Practical challenge siya and magagamit in real life. Yun nga lang higher chances of injury.

Isolation when trying to develop my biceps, triceps etc.

I incorporate both compound and isolation. I start my program with compound work then finish off the workout with some isolation movements.

compound exercises are great for keeping fit, pang-maintenance over the week

but isolation is needed if you want to excel in your chosen sport (for me, it's the legs since I'm into cycling and running)

It depends on your goals.

General health. Compound movements win. Recently, there is a movement prioritizing calisthenics to develop strength. The caveat is that maximal activation is dependent on good form, and most people don't have this so they diminish the effectiveness. But working out is better than not working out. Just don't injure yourself with bad form.

But if you're trying to build a look, isolation exercises are amazing since not all compound movements activate all the muscles equally. They also help develop your compound movements by building a better mind muscle connection since you're trying to activate only that muscle. Iso exercises also have less emphasis on balance and form. You don't have to get your feet, legs, hips, back, abs, chest, and shoulders into position when doing preacher curls.

Build your routine based on your goals, dude.
