Tell them to put all the weight on the lat pulldown machine....and do some pullups.

Depends on who they are and what they want....I wouldn't go too heavy, whole muscle imbalance thing and too much pressure on joints that are not spread out across many muscles like it should be with compound movements. Plus they are not getting the hormonal benefits from heavy training that you do with compound movements. Reps 8-10 keep it glycolitic and improve insulin sensitivity....but again all depends on what they want for results.
