Fit Tip: Compound Exercises

Use Compound Exercises

Instead of working out only one muscle at a time, use exercises that are beneficial for a few muscles at once. Here are a few examples:

Squats: Make sure to keep your weight on your heels, not your toes. Also, your knees should not go forward past your toes.

Benefits- Thighs, hamstrings, calves

Push-ups: Place your hands below your shoulders with your fingers spread. Keep your back straight, making sure that your core stays low.

Benefits- Chest muscles, shoulder muscles, triceps, abdominal muscles

Walking Lunges: Walk forward with one foot and drop the opposite knee. Keep your body weight on the back leg and make a 90-degree angle with your front leg. Alternate legs as you walk forward.

Benefits– Quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, calf muscles
