All our muscles require balanced amount of workout to grow and become stronger. At times, we might overwork one set of muscles overtime, thereby concentrating less on the other body part.
The exercises we are about to show will help target most of our muscle with one exercise type each, thereby saving time and giving the most in the given moment.
1. Helps with Time Management
Our muscles, after one strenuous session can face wear and tear, that require time to heal. Exercising on the same set of muscles on the next day does not prove fruitful. If we alter days, in a way that on first day we perform full body workout, and cardio on the second, this will give ample time to heal muscles and at the same time, resume with the fitness regime.
2. Possible to be Skipped for a Day
Since a whole body workout targets more muscle areas and mass, it can help you perform 2 days of regime for 1 day, thereby providing a rest day to heal. It does the body no harm to skip and rest at times if needed.
3. Faster Workout
Multiple or Compound muscle workouts cater to faster and thorough regimes that is similar to HIIT regimes. There is more calorie burns and within small amount of time, within which, one can try full body exercises and fit in cardio o sweeten the deal.
