I'm not training to failure but I'm going with a compound followed by an isolation exercise and I like how that feels. Last night I did:

I just do side lateral raises for shoulders. With the incline press, dips and close grip presses I'm doing, front delts are getting hit enough for my liking.

For arms I'm basically doing:

That's how I usually feel as well. I guess I'm just more of a compound type of guy. I like the challenge of dips and chins more so than how good of a pump I get from pushdowns or curls.

By direct I meant isolation as in curls, skull crushers, etc. I do isolation arm work from time to time but my thinking is that if I can close grip chin my bodyweight plus a couple of plates, it has...

Not sure how old you are, but seeing the shape people in my age group (40s) are in is enough motivation for me to be disciplined :D

Is Direct Arm Work Necessary?

There's always been debates on different forums as to whether direct (isolation) arm work is necessary to build big arms. So I was curious... if a person never plans to step on a stage, do you feel...

That's a solid routine so don't mess with it by adding more to it because you felt it wasn't enough. Give it time and put in 100% effort when you're in the gym.

I pretty much do the same routine...
