Isolation only work out

I am just training bis tris and leg ext 2-3 times a week for 6 weeks and just see what happens.
 
Then I can add some pulldowns and press's
 
Nice weekend all.

    What are your reasons for such a routine? IMO you will get nothing from it.

    For sure! 30 minutes of curls and then 30 minutes of arm extensions would give killer DOMS. Would it build a lot of muscle in the long term though? Not so sure.

    Im doing this because they are the only exercises that do not hurt my shoulder joints.  However after exhausting bis I tried some pull downs and never had any pain so maybe I will have to do pre exhaust.  I also did 21s with delts.

    If your training around an injury then it's better than nothing. Like I said, as a long term plan it's probably no good. Pre exhaust is an option if you can do it. Is it a rotator cuff injury? If so there are specific exercises you can do to help that.

    I have a long-term shoulder injury and the best way to ease the pain is by exercising the area.
    Like the OP, I did very little work on my shoulders for years (my chest suffered from the lack of this), but recently in particular I have forced myself to gently work my shoulder muscles more and they are beginning to grow fairly quickly and the pain has subsided greatly.
    Perhaps thinking also that developing the triceps really large compensated for the lack of shoulder strength helped. The fact is that the complete upper body requires a workout. Otherwise you end up with body parts out of proportion and perhaps you will suffer from medical issues later in life.

    Doctor said its rotator cuff problem.  It really hurts doing a lat pull down but Friday after doing curls first then ( 21s shoulders ) and then tried the pulldowns and there was hardly any pain but only because I  lent back a bit, but pleased I could do them again, I then done seated rows and for the first time in years tried to make the lats do the work the most.  Looking forward to hitting the gym again Wednesday.

    I have rotator cuff issue too which is a bit on and off too. I find push ups doesn't agree with my right shoulder.
     
    Warming up is definitely key I've noticed for me. It's only specific movements I find I feel the pain. Military over head press seems to help build a good shoulder foundation
