Compound lifts?

What’s the current consensus on compound lifts? I saw on the link in the sticky, statements about compound lifts being superior. Is this still a common opinion?

      For beginners they’re superior for hypertrophy too. The fact that OP is acting such a dumb question indicates he’s a beginner.

    You need isolations for aesthetics, compare that Arnold thread from earlier.

      They’re great but you need to also do isolation movements especially for muscles like biceps and rear delts which the main compounds don’t do enough for

        Doesn't change the fact he did high volume and isolations.

          Yeah he did high volume and heavy weight, isolations and compounds.
          That’s what literally everyone in the thread is telling OP to do
          Only do compounds and you end up looking like Mewtwo
          Only do isolations and you end up looking scrawny

    They're essential, but limiting yourself to only compounds like many strength copers do is fucking retarded. If you want to LOOK like you lift, doing only compounds will give you suboptimal results, especially in muscles like lateral delts, which coincidentally are some of the most important for aesthetics.

    For health and ofc aesthetics compounds are not enough.
    Upper chest, lower lats, rear and lateral delts, abs, lower traps and external rotation for posture and and and and

    Bodybuilding is the best.
    Strength, muscle hypertrophy, health, joint health, higher metabolism due to muscle mass and and and

    As you see bodybuilding is the best

      Dont forget the cardio you get from training 2 hours every day. Bodybuilding is literally peak GPP. Only lacks speed work.

      Once I listened to powershitters and bevlieved that squats and deadlifts are enough for abs.
      Did a cut and barely saw my abs despite being low bf.
      Did weighted ab exercises and had a very sexy sixpack.
      Suddenly had more matches on tinder and bumble.
      This was a wake-up call for me and switched to bodybuilding

      Never ever looked back

      Just do bodybuilding + a martial art and you will beat the shit out of muh strength powershitter

    I never feel more spent than when I do heavy compounds even though I do a ton of volume work.

    Bodybuilders are always seething about strength lifters because they know their preference is mere vanity. Strength training will give you 90% of the aesthetics that bb will, while also making you more useful as a person and as a man. Strength on the leg press has no application to reality; the coordination afforded by the squat is what you need to be strong in real life; so too with all compounds. Are you really going to devote thousands of hours of your life to preening in a mirror? Are you that feminine?

    I OHP my girlfriend. Can you?

      It's not impressive for bodybuilders to OHP their gfs because they don't weigh 200lbs
