I am mentally like Mulder...I want to believe in isolations...but physically I am Scully...I've never really used them, and have a hard time seeing the value.

I hope no one reading this equates my sentiments as meaning "they have no value". I just - personally - see no value in them.

But if they helped my joints, I'm sure I would use them for pre-hab.
Yeah, tiny variations in your joints can really make high rep iso's a bad thing...you know well enough to do what works for you.

Have you researched tendonitis vs tendonosis?

In some senses, they are synonyms, but as I use it, tendonosis is when tendonitis becomes chronic (which can also mean it surfaces anytime you do something that triggers it).

I'll PM you a link...

I have found that my joints feel better when I avoid isolation work. I know this sounds counter-intuitive, but when I stick with basics/compounds my joints feel great.
My biceps kill me if I do too much direct work. Same with anything, I been doing so much compound work my body doesn't heal enough for me to get into much isolation work, at least nothing heavy but who cares since compound movements will make you stronger even on isolation movements but the same for isolation is not as true for compound. Mix it up, do what works, kick what doesn't. It doesn't make sense to stop deadlifting squating overhead and bench pressing just so I can do some heavy curls and two armed db tricep extensions, when I know I can lift heavy isolation if I wasn't doing heavy compound, risk verus award for strength isn't worth it. Total body > parts of the body always.

I completely agree...but...

Biceps act as a stabilizer for a heavy bench. I have concluded that my current shoulder injury is a result of not enough direct bicep work (or, not enough balance between my biceps and pressing...)

I was noticing my right bicep trying to tell me something on my heavy benching. When I jumped the weight up, my right arm struggled to stabilize the weight...since the bicep attaches at the shoulder, when the weight was too much for my bicep to stabilize, my shoulder lifted reflexively (to relieve the straining bicep) and I partially separated my AC joint (thankfully, minor, but it's been bugging me for months).

So, direct biceps? In the rotation, but not a matter of "always vs never."

I actually get bicep pumps from benching when taking creatine. I really have to point and nothing to add other then this.
