Total Gym Exercises - Isolation vs. Compound
What makes one exercise better than another? Answer - How much of your body it
More muscles exercised = more muscle toned and more fat burned
Isolation Exercise - An exercise that stresses your body across 1 joint.
Example: Chest Fly
In a chest fly, only your shoulder joint will be moving - exercising your chest and shoulder
Compound Exercise - An exercise that stresses your body across multiple joints in one
Example: Chest Press
When doing a chest press, both your shoulder and elbow joints will be bending - exercising your
chest, shoulders, and triceps muscles.
Using compound exercises will empower you to train more of your body in less amount of time.
In addition, compound exercises enable you to use more resistance than isolation movements.
