Is there anything wrong with working out only certain muscle groups on a mechanical level?

As a male, say I didn't want to workout my back because I want it to be slim. Is this going to have an effect on other exercises, like legs?

    Yes. It'd cause postural problems and limit your ability to progress on compound movements

      You just need to balance it out with exercises that can make up for it. Like in your example, you want to avoid working back to "be slim" and just do legs - that's fine, but you need to add neck hangs to failure to the routine for balance.

      The body you want is an unrealistic, deformed, gruesome fantasy. Training all the basic movements of the human body will hypertrophy all the major muscle groups of the body, and result in a balanced and aesthetic physique.

      Please believe me when I say you're gonna look goofy not training all muscle groups equally.

      Yes, it'll cause muscle imbalances and eventually you'll get rounded shoulders. Good luck living with a hunchback physique.

      yes its like building a house on pillars of sand. compound excercises are the only way to build a solid foundation if you want to progress

      >you are ruining your body by not working out every muscle group!!!
      Why?
      >w-well, because it'll look silly!
      No, that's fine. I'm actually going for my own aesthetic so I don't mind.
      >w-WAIT!! Rolled shoulders! You'll get rolled shoulders!!
      And what's so bad about rolled shoulders?
      >I-uh... You can't bench properly, okay!!
      But I'm not looking to bench, at all.
      >W-why you...!! Listen, you'll look SOO stupid with rolled shoulders. Believe me, I used to get bullied for having a nerd neck!!
      Oh, I'm sorry that happened to you. Again, I don't really mind because I'm doing it to have the physique I want. Thanks for the advice, though.
      >N...NOOO!!! STOP QUESTIONING MY PRECONCEIVED NOTION OF AESTHETICS!!!!!!

    It’s best if you work out all of your muscle groups, even if you desire to be thin. It’s the difference between sickly-looking auschwitz-mode skinny and toned and healthy-looking skinny.

      But I don't want to look like "healthy skinny" or whatever that means. I want to look like picrel with a relatively well-defined ass and I feel like working out my back would be counteractive to that.

        Nope, not really. You should be targeting all of your muscle groups. Of course, you can place extra focus on the regions that you specifically wish to emphasize.

    It only really matters when you're talking about antagonistic muscles. If you did loads of tricep and no bicep you would fuck up your elbows. There's no reason why you couldn't do only lower body lifts. If you really want to isolate legs and do nothing for your upper body then you want to avoid barbell training and just do less press, leg extension and leg curl.
