How do compound workouts benefit you?


What are compound movements in a workout? Compound movements are exercises that work multiple muscle groups at once...and here are some of the benefits:

  • Burn more calories with compound workouts: Why? Because you're exerting more energy than you would if you isolate your workout with one muscle at a time which makes your workout efficient. Do more in less time. Who doesn't want to burn more calories???

  • Gain More Muscle Mass: Compound movements are one of the most effective ways for clients to hit their goals, a combination of lifting heavier and remaining diet conscious will guarantee gaining those muscle mass goals

  • Improve your overall stamina (energy during a workout): by elevating your heart rate during your workout. Compound movements typically require more energy to complete due to the stress on multiple muscle groups during the workout.

  • Improve your overall flexibility:

  • Improve your strength: doing bigger moves that engage more muscle groups while lifting heavier loads, are all things that contribute improving overall strength


My style of training especially as an online coach is to incorporate as many compound movements as possible so that your workout is constantly challenged. The best way to make your at-home workout effective is to include compound movements in your daily workout routine. Here are some examples workouts for your below! COMPOUND WORKOUTS FOR AT HOME
