But there's not much argument against saying that isolation exercises will make it a hell of a lot easier to work on muscle proportions that lend themselves to a typically aesthetic physique. You aren't going to get impressive biceps only doing chin-ups.
>>31905712 Yeah, this. You could probably look pretty good doing just compounds for a long time. But adding isolations will make you look better in a shorter time, so there's no real reason not to do them.
>>31905676 OP what exactly do you consider aesthetic? Do you want massive biceps and small forearms? Because girls dig big veiny forearms (probably cause they resemble big veiny D). Pic is me, I've never done an isolation exercise. Biceps are 15.5" and forearms are 15" around.
>>31907892 Curls will leave your arms barely able to move. Chin ups you can reach failure to the point where you can't even do 1 after a short rest to recompose and you still won't feel it as much. 21s cause so much burn it feels like the veins in your forearms are actually bursting and you look MAD vascular right through the arm directly afterwards.
>>31907916 Yeah I don't ever do forearm specific exercises, mine are just pretty big naturally. Always could slam everyone in arm wrestling competitions, even bros twice my size. I find that doing lots of pull exercises without using straps works my forearms enough. Deadlifts, shrugs, pendlay rows and 1 arm chinup negatives really destroy every fiber in your forearms. >>31907968 My favorite exercise to work arms specifically is getting on the assisted pullup machine and doing one arm chinups with as little help as possible (like <10% body weight assistance)
