Too lazy to slog your ass in a training session for an hour or more? Are you looking for a strength training routine that will help work out almost all your muscles in one go? Then dear friends, your wish has been granted today. Because we’ve got some great strength training exercises that will target all your muscles together.
Let’s first introduce you to a new terminology – compound exercises. Well, as the name suggests, these exercises help you train more than one muscle at a time. In fact, these exercises are so good that almost every major muscle in your body fires up, when you are at it.So, here are the six most spectacular compound exercises that will help you muscle up in no time:
Never underestimate the power of a burpee. If you love doing cardio, then there can’t be anything better than this, because in this one move, you are not just doing cardio but training your muscles as well.
Because of its move, there are a lot of muscles that get involved. So, from your arms, back, glutes, thighs, hamstrings, quads, to toes, every muscle gets activated when you do a burpee.
You bend, you squat, and you lift. All these moves complete a deadlift. From head to toe, a deadlift works on most of the major muscles in your body like the back, glutes, core, and quads. And because you are also lifting weights, your arms and shoulders will feel the stretch too.
* Squat with a forward hop
To do a forward squat hop, you go into a squat position , and with a forward jump again, get down in a squat position. Then, turn to the other side and repeat it again. This one is not just an amazing muscle builder but also a great way to burn calories.
From a jump, you straight away go into a squat, and that’s why major stretching and contraction happens in your lower body muscles.
* Plank with a tap
We all are well aware of the fact that doing planks is great to strengthen our bodies. But if you add a shoulder tap, it can increase the impact by miles.
* Bear crawl
Doing bear crawls might look funny and easy, but if you do it right with all your muscles engaged, then it can actually work those muscles brilliantly. Arms and legs are the two major muscle groups that are targeted, while pulling off a bear crawl.
* Combination push-up
In this move, you have to do two kinds of push-ups – one with full range (where you have to go all the way deep, and lift all the way up) and two, low range (where you have to go deep and lift your body up by half). Do this alternatively, and see what wonders it does for your chest, back, and arms.
