I just watched a video of a natty acquaintance of mine, Vic Costa. He does primarily isolation exercises, with slow, controlled movements - and the guy looks freaking amazing.

I, for the life of me, can't understand how he gained on that program. I'm not putting down his training style, but there is no way I could gain using it. I wonder he he trained like that when he was young.
