Jody: Compound Movements on Live in the D

Ever find yourself saying you are going to exercise more but find it hard to find the time for your workout? There are ways to get more out of your workout by doing fewer exercises.

Nutrition and fitness expert Jody Trierweiler chatted with Live In The D host Jason Cart about four ways to get more from your workout.

With the holidays approaching, all of us have less time and are busy, Jody says instead of doing one exercise at a time, compound exercises are combining two or more exercises together.

The nutrition and fitness expert says if you have dumbbells at home heavier is always better. She says when doing bicep curls, you can add squats or curtsy squats, and shoulder raises.

Trierweiler says the benefits include burning more calories, more efficient workout, improved coordination, and improved joint mobility.
