i agree about the squats and deadlifts but, iso. exercises are not a wast. any stimulation is good stimulation. the reason compound movements such as squats and deadlifts work so well is they let us push heavy weights. more weight = more stress. over time your body will adapt to this by getting bigger and stronger. i don't recomend these movements if you have any back injuries.
tyr this in your chest work out. go to the pec deck or any fly machine. adjust it so you can get a good strech. start each rep slow and controled. when you come to full contraction(when your hands touch)give it a good squeeze for 2 sec. then relax and open up about 12 in. then contract again, now go all the way back and get a good strech. thats one rep. just remember slow, controled,and squeeeeeeeeze.
