Compound Exercises

Compound exercises are multi-joint movements that work two or more muscles/muscle groups at the same time, and are efficient for burning calories & increasing muscle mass as they require more effort to complete. Squat is an example of compound exercise that works on your glutes, quadriceps, thighs, and calves. It may also refer to combining two exercises into one move, such as a lunge with a bicep curl, for maximum gains.
