    Would you do less compound more isolation or just keep training the way you usually train with more compounds leaving isolation as last exercises?

    Until depletion workouts during peak week I keep my workouts more or less the same. Some increased iso, but not much...and increased volume on any bodyparts that need to be brought up

    Continue to lift heavy and just as you were. You have to continue to stimulate the muscle to give it a reason to stay. Cut back a bit on rest time and the amount of sets that you do to reduce to risk of overtraining and losing your hard earned muscle. I would drink a bcaa supp (huge fan of modern bcaa) during your workout as well to minimize catabolism.
