Today the home workout we have planned for you focuses on compound exercises. Compound exercises are when you engage two or more different joints to use entire muscle groups. These are total body movements that use more than one body part and muscles. A few of the benefits to adding compound exercises to your routine are that they burn more calories, they make your workout more intense, and they make your workout more effective.
To do this workout start with completing 4 rounds of the warm up. Next complete each exercise for the allotted repetitions. Each round you will increase the repetitions by 5 reps. For the lunges and rows make sure you repeat the repetitions on each side of your body. For a longer workout complete the warm up after each round. Don’t forget to cool down and stretch! Enjoy! 😉
You will find examples of each exercises on our YouTube Channel.
