Some people really love working out, but most want to get their workout done as fast as possible. They’re always looking for the ultimate bang-for-your-buck workouts that get them the best results in the shortest time!

Compound exercises are the easiest way to take your workout from good to great without spending more time in the gym. Working multiple muscles at the same time will help you to gain more muscle and burn more calories in less time.

Here are three of the most effective and time-efficient compound exercises. The best thing about burpees is that they require nothing but your body weight so you can do them anywhere, at any time. They are great for conditioning and strengthening your entire body. 

Burpees can be a bit challenging for beginners, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try them. Just add a squat in between the standing and the plank position.

Start the exercise by standing straight, then squat and place your hands on the floor in front of you and jump backward. If that’s too hard, replace the jump with a walk back. Lastly, jump forward and stand up (or drop to your knees, step forward, and then stand up).

Did you come here for something in particular or just general Riker-bashing? And blowing into maximum warp speed, you appeared for an instant to be in two places at once. We have a saboteur aboard.

Deadlifts are a great exercise. They target the hamstrings, glutes, lower back, upper back, and core muscles all at once, leading to huge improvements in strength and stability. This exercise improves posture and makes it easier to perform daily tasks. Lastly, deadlifts are the ultimate time-saver. Instead of using three different machines, you can get the same workout with just a pair of dumbbells.
