I just prefer it thats all.
The routine you posted is basically a BB routine, not a powerlifting routine. A powerlifting routine would not have so muhc assistance, and especially the assistance exercises like you posted.

Dude, wukkadb is right here. The routine you listed is a basic body building routine. Power lifters focus mostly on compound movements. They don't really do isolation exercises.

Ya, pretty much. And assistance exercises for powerlifters are mainly used for sticking points, such as board presses for bench, rack pulls for deadlifts, box squats for squats, etc.

His first lift of the routine is a compound lift though, but then he is doing BB style assistance work.

A slosh pipe is a long bit of piping filled with around 3/4 of water which moves as you lift and carry it etc.

well i got that routine from a powerlifting coach a few years back. It never failed me back then. Granted isolations are not needed and i never said they are. I just feel that personally they help my training. I dont need to do curls to get a choke I just feel that it can help.
Not everyone will feel the benefits for isolation but i do.
The point of the post really was to see if anyone else felt the same.
The powerlifting club i used to go to did alot more isolation than I put in my routine.
So I dont think anyone is wrong at all infact everyone is right.
Its just that as i believe different things work well for different people.

Its almost as if I like to be tapped out! lol

i can see that maybe I have rubbed people up the wrong way by bringing up the subject of isolation. This was not my intention.
The post was not intended to start an argument or anything like that just to share opinions and I agree with everyones. My routing is not a permanent one. Its just for the mean time until my body is back in shape for heavier lifts and compounds. I have a lot of knee problems and a lower back problem.

I don't think you really offended people, you obviously know that compound lifts are better than isolation lifts, but isolation lifts do have their place, which is exactly what I think as well.
