Rule #1 - Make a List & Keep it Simple

Create Maximum Strength in Minimum Time with Compound Exercises

Compound Exercises are a fast and efficient way to get a lot done in a little time.
 
What are Compound Exercises?
Compound exercises are multi-joint exercises that work several muscle groups at a time, and move your body in natural ways - pushing, pulling, and lifting.
 
For example:
You can create two exercises out of one repetition - try a Row with a Triceps Kickback. See the video below.
 

Signature Exercise - The Full Body Lunge

Build on a Classic with these fun and effective lunges.

This classic leg strengthener works best outdoors because of the changing degrees of incline in the terrain, as well as the subtleties on the surface. Grass, gravel, dirt, sand, leaves, twigs and the like, cause you to “finesse through your feet,” developing underfoot sensitivity and enhancing balance and proprioceptive awareness.

 

Single-Leg Dip

An excellent exercise for building proprioception and balance. It also does a great job at strengthening the ankle, knee, and hip joints.
 
Works: Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Glutes, Joint Stability, Proprioception, Balance
Props: Flat Ground
