Compound exercises are movements that train multiple muscle groups at once- making them the most efficient exercises for building muscle.
There are 4 main compound exercises, each training distinct muscles. - The Push - The Pull - Knee Flexion - Hip Extension
– The Squat pattern is the most fundamental lower body compound movement for basic human physiology – If you could only do one exercise, the squat would be it.
One of the best squat variations you can perform is the front squat. This movement changes the center of gravity and trains the upper back and quads more than a back squat.
