Compound Exercises

Pictured above is a "Good Morning". A lovely exercise for the glutes, hamstrings, erector spinae, core and more!

Instead of isolating your muscles with exercises such as the biceps curl, you can maximize gym time with exercises that work multiple muscle groups at once. With just a few exercises you can get a full-body workout.

Another benefit of compound exercises is that muscles work together as they do in the real world rather that independently. Great compound exercises include squats, deadlifts, good-mornings, lunges, pushups, bench presses, military presses, rows, pull-ups and dips.

Go on...try a compound work-out the next time your at the gym! Push yourself and see results!!

The train of failure usually runs on the track of laziness.~
