Compound exercises

Compound exercises are multi-joint movements that work several muscles or muscle groups at one time. A great example of a compound exercise is the squat exercise, which engages many muscles in the lower body and core, including the quadriceps, the hamstrings, the calves, the glutes, the lower back and the core.

Isolation exercises work only one muscle or muscle group and only one joint at a time. Eg Bicep curl/ Quadricep extension ( leg extension machine)

For advanced fitness, Compound exercises are recommended as they use more muscle groups , which means

  • more calories burned during exercise.

  • simulates real-world activities.

  • allows you to get a full body workout faster.

  • improves coordination, reaction time and balance.

  • allows you to exercise longer with less muscle fatigue.
