When it comes to exercise, we don’t always need to have a lot of time, it’s more about being efficient with our time! This is one of the many reasons why I love compound exercises. They allow us to make the most of every moment, working multiple muscle groups at one time. Today,  I want to share 5 of my favorites!

Grab your dumbbells and give these effective movements a try!

Bonus: Combined together and you have one awesome circuit workout!

    I’m also a fan of walking lunges with dumbells–there are so many combinations you can add. For example, between lunges add a squat with an overhead press, or an upright row.

    I love these! I plan to use a few at the gym tomorrow. Love all of your workout ideas 🙂

      Absolutely!! Squat Press are definitely another favorite! As for those pull-ups, I really need to start working towards getting one unassisted again! It’s a goal!
