𝘾𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙 𝙀𝙭𝙚𝙧𝙘𝙞𝙨𝙚𝙨 vs 𝙄𝙨𝙤𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙀𝙭𝙚𝙧𝙘𝙞𝙨𝙚𝙨, is a highly debated topic, however which one should be the winner, giving you a bang for your buck?
So let's see, -
Train and recruit maximum muscle groups as there are many 'joint action' happening during the exercise for example, when we look at the bench press, we see that the 'joint action' happening there is, shoulder horizontal adduction and elbow extension, the muscles working are Pectoralis major, Anterior deltoid, and triceps brachii.
So as more joints work, more muscles work, as more muscles work to perform the activity, more work is done, and as more work is done, more energy (calories) are needed, and hence may enhance fat loss results.
The only way to stimulate muscle growth is through progressive overload.
This is exactly what all my own training, and my clients training is based on.There has to be a reason for your muscles to grow, as once we are adults this does not occur naturally. As stated before, that reason is progressive overload and the more overload the muscles are put through, the greater increases in strength and size you will experience.
An exercise where action happens only between a single joint, example - Bicep Curl
Isolation exercises can be majorly helpful when a certain muscle cannot be trained in isolation, example - biceps, hamstrings, medial deltoid, and posterior deltoid.
For them isolation exercises is the only way to train, as their recruitment in compound exercise is pretty non-existent.
Isolation Exercises can be used during injury too, for example, even if the triceps is injured, we can train the chest muscle in a pec deck or a cable/dumbbell fly, without overloading the triceps, (however caution is not to be neglected, and modifying or replacing an exercise or equipment should be done only under the guidance of a trained professional)
It’s vitally important you follow a well-designed program that does include both compound and isolation exercises.
