No one likes to waste time! This is especially true during a workout. Working out is great, we aren’t knocking it, trust us, but if you could get a killer workout in less time, you would, right?
That’s where compound exercises come in! Compound exercises are ones that use multiple joints which means that they also engage multiple muscle groups at the same time! These sorts of exercises also prove to be a far more functional way of approaching your workout. Think about it, most of the movements you make during the course of the day use multiple joints and muscles, why shouldn’t your workout do the same? When you work out in this way, you make doing these everyday tasks, like carrying groceries and playing with your children, that much easier.
We aren’t saying that single joint, or isolation, exercises that focus on one muscle group at a time are ineffective, but we are suggesting you mix things up now and again. It is only through challenging your body and your muscles that you will find results you’re after!
So what is this killer move? It’s the squat curl & press!
Take a look:
As you can see, this move will work your lower AND upper body! That’s right, say goodbye to jiggly arms WHILE building out that booty! And because you are being required to use your upper and lower body at the same time, you are also engaging your core — building strength, balance, and stability.
