    Compound movements only

    Im not big on iso movements, I was wondering if its possible to hit everything with just compound movements, for example:

    Legs - Squats, SLDL
    Chest - Bench, CG Bench
    Back - Deads, Weighted Chins
    Shoulders - I dunno the name of this one, the one where you pull the bar up like an upright row, then push it into an overhead press, and Shrugs.

    Not many exercises, but would that combination hit everything?

    You're refering to a 'clean & press' I believe.

    I've basically used nothing but compounds for the last several months with good results. However, I've recently added in some direct tricep work because I'm trying to do a little of the Westside thing.
