Compound Training

Compound Exercises:

These are resistance exercises that heavily activate more than one muscle area.

These are a great tool for building strength, burning calories and utilising as many muscles as possible at once. A full body workout can be achieved in a shorter amount of time, with cardiovascular benefits keeping your heart rate high. These are also a great way of training the core muscles to work hard during each movement.

Examples include: Bench Press, Barbell Squats, The Deadlift, Overhead Press, Bent Over Rows and Pull Ups

Technique and focusing on correct form is vital throughout. Keep the weights light to begin with to ease the body into each movement while keeping the reps low to focus on form. Come and ask one of the gym team to help with any of these movements such as demonstrations, checking form and recommendations for sets and weights.
