Isolation exercises target individual muscles exclusively, whereas compound exercises utilize multiple muscle groups at once. Isolation exercises can be useful for certain purposes, particularly for bodybuilders, but have limited benefit when trying to lose weight as quickly as possible. Use compound exercises that target more than one muscle at a time to burn more calories.
When it comes to maintaining strength, you're going to target compound exercises--deadlifts, squats and shoulder presses. Exercises that use the big muscle groups are your friends. Remember, your races take priority, so there is no need to set a personal weightlifting record during this time.
