Compound Exercises

Compound Exercises

Compound isn’t always the most positive of descriptions as no-one wants to deal with a compound fracture or compound interest, but compound exercises are a fantastic way to build muscle. A compound move is any weight-bearing lift that involves movement at more than one joint. They’re often referred to as ‘more bang for your buck’ exercises because each rep hits multiple muscle groups. For example:

  • Squats
  • Deadlifts
  • Pull-ups
  • Bench Press
  • Military Press

We intend on making the above examples as separate pages and we will provide you with a detailed breakdown on how to perform them perfectly and get maximum gains.

Thanks for reading,

    I don’t do enough of these movements but it’s something I’ll definitely consider now.

    Hi guys, I always bench press but I’m unsure if I’m squatting and deadlifting correctly. Some images and/or videos would be great for when you come to do individual compound exercises. Thanks, Ian
