Does anyone know the answer to this??

Mike Mentzer says that you should not do more than one set on any exercise or individual body part. So why does he put two isolation exercies for the same muscles in one workout. I understand pre-exausting, but not two isolations for the same bodypart–that′s like doing 2 sets! can anyone help??

if your talking about the ideal routine where you do pec deck into incline bench i wouldn′t call the incline a isolation exercise the only other combo is leg extension into leg presses which again the leg press isnt a isolation exercise…

its just a way of pre exhuasting and hitting failure in the main target muscle…maybe one of the other guys can come up with what mike had to say about this

he never says to do 2 isolation movements as a pre-exhaust superset.

leg presses, bench presses, incline presses, chins, rows, deads, squats, OH presses, etc these are all compound movements and would come second in a pre-exhaust superset after the isolation movement.

The workout I had was one that Mike Mentzer gave to Paul Becker in the 80′s. It included Dumbell Laterals And Rear Laterals in the same workout..both isolating the shoulder? But it was one of his early workouts.
