This might not be popular, but I personally don't believe isolation exercises carry much value. They can be good for pre-hab, rehab, and they may build muscle, but compared to compound lifts, I simply don't feel that they carry enough comparable value to be utilized in mass building routine.

Bottom line...there are too many quality compound lifts. I have never seen the point in performing 9 sets of presses and then 4 sets of cable crossovers.
