My philosophy for muscle building is generally:

--Lead with no more than 2-3 major compound lifts.
--Spend the rest of your time working weaknesses and needed bodyparts.

There is some balance here. Many top trainers agree that 2-3 big lifts is generally optimal for the average trainee. After that, since you have nothing to lose and everything to gain, maximize your work even if it is isolation.

Even "if" it's not building extra muscle, you can still build extra strength (progression) on these assistance movements which can't hurt. There are no downsides to that. Strength forces response.
