I will agree with Steven. And the point Lincoln made is what I tell anyone who discusses the use of isolation movements. A CF-er has no use for isolation movements in my opinion.

I haven't touched a machine or an isolation movement in a long time and any "lagging" body parts for me have not been an issue - CF has helped me fix them through functional movement.

"The multi-joint movements will be the foundation of any quality routine but sometimes the walls need some repairs as well, if you catch the analogy."

Jeff, that's true. But I want my walls to be as match the foundation. I'll build those with squats, cleans, and weighted pullups instead of leg extensions, bent rows, and concentration curls.

Analogies aside, you can still work problem areas with compound movements. I was embarrassed the day we did L-pullups. I was terrible. I could do pullups all day (not really), but my core was too weak to hold the L. A steady diet of L-sits and L-pullups has eliminated that problem better than hundreds of crunches would have.
