#mealprep #wcw #eggs #fitnesstips Malcolm Gladwell stated in his book Outliers that "ten thousand hours is the magic number of greatness." While it’s debated that 10,000 hours or 9 years is the  exact magic number what I do believe is true is deliberate/consistent practice. Apply this to whatever you choose... I know I am—- especially with my posing. Here are some highlights from April through June. If you need posing help (bikini & figure)  feel free to reach out to me 😘.

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. Bodybuilding.com has an excellent database of common exercises with videos included. 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
