Compound exercises are multi-joint movements that require the use of various muscle groups. That means performing a workout filled with compound exercises will give you more “bang for your buck” which is why I decided to fill this weekend workout with one of the best compound exercises around: the push-up.
This bodyweight workout includes a variety of push-up variations that will strengthen numerous muscle groups in your body. I recommend performing 10 reps of each push-up variation followed by at least 30 seconds of rest for three to five circuits. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.
