Yo, i dunno why everyone hatin on sgt.sixpack lol. seriously he was only making the point about the traps being used during the shoulder excercise.
Other than that i agree that compound excercises are better for MMA, it doesnt make the muscles themselves stronger though, as it appears wukka is trying to state. It does, however produce a stronger athlete, simply because the muscles are used to working together, they work together effectively with no weak links. Even the shaolin knew this hundreds of years ago, notice all their training is compound excercises.
ps.love that avatar u got wukka
, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG!
