Full-body "compound" exercises are a type
of strength training. 2 or 3 compound exercises each
day can get life-changing results in minutes.
Compound exercises are functional, multi-joint, multi-muscle

Compound exercises tend to use almost every muscle
in your body at some intensity.
Performing single-leg versions of these exercises increases
the difficulty and benefits even further.
