Compound crusher workout


Compound crusher

Hi guys! Hope you’re enjoying your day so far <3 It’s been an interesting week. I fully believe that the full moon affects energy/mood/toddler behavior. During naptime, I usually blitz through the to-do list, but this week, I watched a couple episodes of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and the finale of So You Think You Can Dance. Hashtag guilty pleasures. It’s been a fun teaching week, and today it felt great to get back to Orangetheory since I had an off night from teaching. I think one of the many reasons why I love it so much is that they use heavy weights, compound movements (with an emphasis on safe, proper form), and high-intensity intervals. All the good things rolled into one.

I put together this compound crusher to share for the next time you’re looking for a quick circuit workout. It hits all of the major muscle groups, and will also get your heart rate up if you move quickly from one exercise to the next with little to no rest in between.
