Trying not to fall off the deep end with my carbs... that sounds amazing though.... swimming in French fries... 🍟🤤 i digress. When training biceps, 😆 I like to incorporate barbells, dumbbells, cables, and other moves using just body weight or light weight medicine balls. I try not to repeat an exact exercise routine so even if I’m doing 4 sets of 4 exercises each week for a body part it’s never the same. I love doing cable curls with a rope attachment because I get to twist my wrists... something you cant do with a barbell. 👕 @superfreshclothes

Do me a favor google Jocko Willink Good Rant and have a listen. Here’s an excerpt: “... Now, I don’t mean to say something trite; I’m not trying to sound like Mr. Smiley Positive Guy.

That guy ignores the hard truth.

That guy thinks a positive attitude will solve problems.

It won’t. But neither will dwelling on the problem. No. Accept reality, but focus on the solution. Take that issue, take that setback, take that problem, and turn it into something good.” 💥.

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
