If you’re looking to burn more calories and see results faster, compound exercises are the way to go. Compound exercises involve multiple muscle groups and are considered more challenging than isolation exercises. As a result, they burn more calories in less time. If your goal is to create a leaner, more sculpted physique, compound exercises should be at the core of your workout routine. Here are just six of the best compound exercises to get you started on your journey.
Basic Bodyweight Twist
If you’re looking for compound back exercises, you’ll definitely want to try this exercise. Lie on your back with both arms extended overhead and legs crossed at ankles or knees whichever works better for each individual person’s preference (as long as it does not create an imbalance); now take hold of opposite hands while raising them up towards the chest level before rotating right shoulder blade off ground – 60 degrees per iteration should do nicely!
The Romanian Deadlift
The Romanian deadlift is a great movement for building strength and power. It works the lower back, arms/shoulders as well as legs to create an entire body workout! The first thing you need in order to do it safely though – make sure that your form stays consistent at all times by paying attention not just how far apart each leg separates but also to which arm goes down next during the execution of this complex motion none-the-less.
From a standing position, hinge at the hips and contract your abdominal muscles as you lift one leg up in front of you. Keep that side stable by bracing it against an object such as a wall or furniture while extending out through both arms to form what’s called “the plank.” Hold this position for 30 seconds before switching sides and repeating with the other leg elevated higher than floor level so they’re about 6 inches apart from each other during movement.
Suspension Trainer Rows
Suspension Trainer Rows are a great way to keep your cores activated while you’re seated. With this exercise, it’s important not just the front and back but also side-to as well because oftentimes people slouch or lean forward when they don’t feel well which leads to their poor posture! This type of movement will help improve blood flow all over so even if one muscle gets sore from being static for too long there’ll still be others working hard in tandem with its use.
Dumbbell Single Leg Lift
The dumbbell single-leg lift is a strengthening exercise for the glutes and hip adductors. Start by standing up straight with your feet about shoulder distance apart, holding one weight in each hand at chest level or just below it so that they are slightly higher than your arms should be when relaxed. Keeping back flat against the floor will help keep the core engaged as you raise the left leg behind the right knee to return down slowly; do the same thing on the other side.
When it comes to the best compound exercises, this is one of our favorites. Barbell thrusters are used in the same manner as overhead shoulder presses, with one major exception: there’s no need for you to hold anything! This makes them more intense and effective at building strength. They will help you enhance your power, speed, strength as well as coordination! How’s that for ideal compound exercises at home?
