Now that I am hoping to start ramping up my bodybuilding, because I have more time, I had some questions come up.
I've been working out religiously 3x a week for months now (Idk how many. 3-5?) I've slowly gotten better form, and my mind-muscle connection is getting better.
Anyways, I've struggled with this issue recently so I'm looking for some insight.
Do I do very low weight but achieve total isolation, higher weight but still relatively isolated, or more weight but compound exercises?
What I mean by total isolation is, for example: On skullcrushers I can move my shoulders and back in a way that the only muscles that get hit are the triceps, but then the amount of weight I use must be very low to even get out 3-4 reps.
Do you think I should up the weight and have stabilizer muscles contribute? Will I grow faster this way?
And until recently I've really only worked out my biceps and triceps...now I'm trying to incorporate some squats for extra test. Part of the reason I haven't done the compound movements is I don't have a bench, I just use the floor, and I don't have that much room.
Anyways, I'm just trying to figure out if my "complete isolation" is detrimental or not to my growth. I see growth after everyworkout, so I know it's working...and I think I do it this way because I see results...but I'm thinking I may need to start working on other exercises to spread out the growth. My arms are big enough at this point I guess. But, I kinda have to weight on doing some exercises until I move to my new place. There is no room to do it where I live, and you can't do proper movements on the ground.
Any help is appreciated! Sorry for the rambling, I just took my pre-/wo caffeine, lol.
