And lat pulldowns...many of us can't do pullups, so they are a viable alternative, as are negative pullups.
I agree with the priority, but I made some solid progress (IMO) with finishing isolation movements after the staple movements. After all, I'm a BB not a PL
But really it all comes down to doing what you like. I see guys in the gym that start out with isolation movements and it's all I can do not to say something in a helpful way. But really how do you go up to a stranger and do that?
