Compound: Multi-joint lift. Brings multiple areas of the body into play to complete the lift.

Isolation: Single Joint lift. Focuses on a single muscle.
Example: Preacher Curl, triceps extension

Isometric: Holding a static position against force
Example: Plank, static hold
I think this pretty much covers it.
