Build Muscle With Isolation Exercises

That’s right, even though everyone seems to make isolation exercises the “red-headed stepchild” in the muscle building / weight gain process, they build just as much muscle mass as any compound bodybuilding movement.

Don’t take my word for it: Here’s a quote from Markus Ruhl, one of the biggest IFBB professional bodybuilders ever, from a Flex interview: “The biggest mistake I see people make in chest training is assuming that flyes and cable crossovers are for definition and not mass building. Definition comes from diet and cardio; weight training is to gain mass. I never do an exercise that does not build mass, and that includes flyes and crossovers. I do them with full power….”

Markus, you have just made one of the most intelligent observations I’ve read a bodybuilder make. How refreshing!
