What are the benefits of a full body workout ?



1️⃣Burn More Calories + Lower Time Commitment⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You’ll burn a lot more calories when performing a full-body training session as opposed to just a bicep/tricep day. Major muscle groups working together in compound exercises, like squats & lunges, require more energy to coordinate movement, move heavy loads & provide more oxygen to working muscles than single-joint exercises that only work 1 or 2 small muscles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


2️⃣Build More Muscle⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Overzealous isolation work one day per week isn't frequent enough for most people to see gains in muscular size. With full-body training (assuming appropriate weight loads & rest), you're targeting any given muscle group multiple times a week for more muscle growth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


3️⃣Increase Strength⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

To get stronger, it’s imperative to perform movements that allow you to use the most weight. Compound exercises such as the squat, deadlift, & bench/strict press variations are full-body movements that require the most total-body effort to execute. These exercises are some of the mainstays within, so your body will continuously (and effectively) build strength.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


4️⃣Ideal for Home Workouts⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Full body workouts are the best option for HOME. With equipment choices limited full body workouts fit nicely since they require fewer different lifts total.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


5️⃣Ideal for Fat Loss, Less Overall Soreness, & Easier to Recover From⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When focused on losing fat, you’ll be in a caloric deficit, which also means a lower level of recovery reserves. Full body workouts make for the ideal fat loss workout set-up as they allow you to work each muscle group multiple times a week without asking as much from the body in recovery. Instead of not being able to walk after “destroying” you “Leg Day” for many days, your whole body will be less sore.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
