One night we stumbled onto the fountain at the Comcast Center on JFK Blvd by Chops restaurant. Soo beautiful! 😍😍 I loved watching the water dance and tried to freeze time with my camera.

Actually... I don’t mind turning 39.
I’m on the cusp of a lot right now— 
my 40s, 
my pro debut,
marrying my love,
I’m also on the cusp of sharing some of the creative projects I am working on. My heart is so full and I am excited for this next chapter! ❤️ .

Shoulder health is very important to me so in addition to mixing up my exercises so I’m not always just lifting heavy, I make sure I warm my shoulders up especially the rotator cuffs.... because no one has time for injuries! Warm up videos are on my site. Link in Bio. 😘😘.

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!
