Compound Exercises | Start your workout with these multi-muscle exercises
Compound exercises are typically exercises being performed at the beginning of all workouts. These exercises focus on more than one muscle group and are typically very functional. Compound exercises should be completed by everyone regardless of your workout level or age.
A great way to improve strength and power
Barbell exercises are usually used during compound power exercises. These exercises use many muscle groups and are functional for any athlete. The disadvantage to barbells are that you can easily use a 'stronger side' to help lift the weight. Dumbbells should be used with a lagging side. Olympic barbells usually weigh 45lbs but should not be used if the bar is bent. The barbell should also be inspected regularly to make sure it has maintained its integrity. If you feel that the barbell is about to break or isn't safe, report it.
