    The routine consists of two chest, two back, and one leg exercise every day that I work out. The back exercises include row (sitting and upright), or chinups. The chest is presses, military, bench, incline, or dips.

    I'm not worried about looks for awhile. I have to lose weight before arm size would ever be an issue.

Know of any that accomodate a 29-inch waist without slipping annoyingly and making me walk around like a doofus pinching the plate between my knees to keep the entire apparatus from diving anklewards?

    Nope, sorry. Maybe try e-mailing EliteFTS, Ironmind, New York Barbells, etc.?

    That's a good suggestion. If you don't know about there being smaller ones, I certainly won't feel like an idiot asking any of those companies.

    Although now I'm contemplating making my own out of some chain, carabiners, pipe insulation, and duct tape like I saw on YouTube.

    If your a bodybuilder, then isolated exercises can come in handy.

    Why only a bodybuilder? Isolation lifts are an excellent tool when used appropriately for both athletes and those competing in strength sports.

    In actuality most bodybuilders focus too heavily on isolation when in fact heavy compounds will build the mass required much more effectively. Many Powerlifters and athletes will suffer from a variety of injuries that require rehab or an increased propensity to certain types of injuries that require prehab, isolation exercises can be excellent in this case.

    I am starting out with exclusively compound exercises. If I find a weakness or have troubles then I will add isolation. For now I am weak all over so I figured there's no need but wanted to check.

    You can just add a couple of sets in every other week, and it will make more difference than you think, while not getting in the way of the big lifts. I wouldn't go nuts with isolation though.
    Your calves and arms look pretty whimpy? Are you doing explosive exercises? Try doing more stuff with dumbbells like 5x5 jump squats, power cleans, and jumping lunges will bulk your calves up. Also like The Russ said chin ups and rows.

    With heavy, full body movements It's been along time since I've needed to do any iso. at all (except for rotator cuffs, do not forgot to train them with high rep, light weight).

    Internal and external rotations.

    You can do them upright (standing/sitting) with cable or elastic tubing, or on your side with a dumbbell (although internal rotations are tough when you're laying on your arm).
