You can develop real strength in a shorter period of time by doing "compound exercises." Compound exercises are multi-joint movements that work several muscles or muscle groups at one time. An example of a compound exercise is the squat, which engages many muscles in the lower body and core, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and even lower back.
