Complementary Compounding

Ramp up your metabolism with these compound exercises.

When time is limited, a super quick way of exercising is to use compound exercises to work more than one body part at a time. This really helps boost your metabolism as you are breaking down more muscle in one go than in single (isolated) exercises, though of course isolated exercises still have their benefits when you have more time. You can do this workout in as little as 10 minutes and with absolutely minimal equipment. In fact it is a great morning routine to set you up for the day.

Any moderate to hard weight that you can hold comfortably and securely will do, so you don’t have to use formal equipment like dumbbells or medicine balls. Always remember though to warm up before you exercise and stretch after.
