Full Body Compound Exercise Workout
So what is a compound exercise? It’s an exercise that works multiple muscle groups at the same time. Compound exercises are perfect for building strength. Normally my workouts consist of both compound and isolation exercises but I’m strapped for time at the moment so I’ve got this new workout that consists of compound exercises only. For me it’s tough and challenging but it’s building strength and due to the intensity of the exercises I’m only doing this 3 times a week so able to rest more or spend more time on cardio.
I’ve added links if you are unsure of the exercises in this workout but I would only attempt this Full Body Compound Exercise Workout if you are confident in performing them.

10 Healthy Habits for Autumn
I’ll admit it Autumn isn’t up there as one of my favourite times of the year. Summer can seem more of a relaxed affair and with more daylight and sunshine my mood is generally in a happy place. Then its BAAM! Back in to the routine of school and once past Halloween it’s that build up to Christmas. Saying that I do like those first initial chilly mornings, the beauty of Autumn and having the kids back at school has it’s advantages, so ok maybe it’s not so bad? For me when the nights start to draw in, the central heating goes on and my wardrobe switches to boots and sweaters it can be an excuse to start hibernating a little, switch to a stodgy diet and perhaps ease off on the running front.
Developing healthy habits will help to see you through the chillier weather, help to maintain a positive attitude and, fingers crossed, stave off potential weight gain.
Here are my 10 Healthy Habits for Autumn
- If you must comfort eat make it healthy
- Commit to a weekly Workout Schedule and log your progress
- Revamp your running or training gear if you exercise outdoors

- No Hibernating! Stay Sociable!
- Make one day a week a Family Day
- Unplug/Go Offline; even if it’s an hour before bedtime
