MEDYO TAMA KA DUN EG, MAYBE I USED THE WRONG TERM "EXHAUST". BUT WHAT I MEANT TO SAY IS, USED AS A FINISHER FOR WORKOUT. PARANG "ICING" SA CAKE.

If you are really working hard, "isolation" exercises aren't necessary.

For everyone who has been asking for this, we have the ability to film it and put it on the Eclipse website...but just keep reminding me...or tell Olympus to kick me in the butt next time he sees me so I won't forget :D

hey there

i concur. i think compound exercises will be more effective in the long run but isolations add more flavor to the exercise. compound exercise save time. imagine doing 5X5 with bicep curls, triceps, shrugs, etc etc etc.. imagine how much time it would burn to do all those isolation exercise.

That was one of our assistant coaches. You have to look in front or look up as looking down may cause your back to arch in the dynamic row

For the power snatch, the jumping motion becomes secondary after a time. At first you practice tip toeing

one thing i've noticed with the compound exercises, ang pinapatunguhan ng korte na katawan ko ay yung katulad sa mga athletes, like dwayne wade. nung isolation exercises ang ginagawa ko, ang laki ng triceps ko at lag ang delts ko... typical sa mga nagbubuhat sa gym. yoko nung ganoong katawan. pero malayo pa katawan ko kay dwayne wade ha? :D

I agree. Better in a sense that you build muscle more efficiently to a point that you encourage proportion strength and muscle development. They key word is better. Doesn't mean I totally forego "isolations."
