FYI— consistency over time will get you to your goals. Don’t get caught up in all the fads you hear about... flat tummy teas, lose a gazillion lbs in 3 days because of whatever detox drink... magic pills, potions, fairy dust 🧚‍♀️.... these quick “fixes” give you temporary results. Focus on making sustainable healthy lifestyle changes instead. ❤️

I like this variation as it removes the load of weight on the spine, will help improve front squat form and help increase activation in the quads and glutes. This can also be done with a loaded barbell. The weight is held in the crook of your elbows and your stance is wide to accommodate your elbows on descent. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Becoming a professional bodybuilder was the furthest thing from my goals in the years before 2013. I was just trying to survive life. So how did I get here? There’s a quote, “Almost every successful person begins with two beliefs: the future can be better than the present and I have the ability to make it so.” I know I have been successful in bodybuilding because I believed I could be. Because I believed I could, I acted accordingly. This applies to you and whatever your goals may be. You must believe in yourself—- you are capable of amazing things. Don’t let doubt and limiting beliefs cripple you into complacency. 😘😘.

Compound Exercises

What are compound exercises?

The short answer: Compound exercises are movements that involve multiple muscles and joints. Regardless of your primary fitness goal (weight loss, muscle gain, performance etc), compound exercises should make up the majority of your workout.

Isolation exercises (exercises that involve only one joint/muscle group) do have their place in training and rehabilitation programs and should not be totally neglected however I  suggest your training plan be structured around compound exercises.

Some benefits of compound exercises are:

  • Improves functional fitness since many compound exercises simulate real life scenarios/activities.
  • Increases calorie burn.
  • Increases workout intensity which creates the perfect environment for both fat loss and muscle building.
  • Improves joint stability & balance.
  • Increases ability to progressively lift heavier.

Below is a listing of some compound exercises you can include in your training plan, grouped by the primary muscle group being either upper or lower body. If you are unsure of how to properly execute any of these movements please do you research and/or ask for help. Keep in mind, proper form is more important than the amount of weight you lift and can improve your odds of being injury free. 🙂


Upper Body Push ups (Incline, Decline, Diamond, etc)
Bench Press (Incline, Decline, Barbell, DB etc)
Chin Up/ Pull Up/ Muscle Up
Bent Over Row / Pendlay Row
Inverted Row
Dips
Shoulder Press (Military, Arnold etc)
Lower Body Squats (Front, Back, Hack etc)
Deadlifts (Sumo, American, Romanian etc)
Lunges
Leg Press
Good Mornings

 

For videos demonstrating many of these movements, visit my exercise library!
