Over the years I’ve tried dozens of workouts, and every conceivable exercise you can think of.
From split routines of arms, shoulders, chest legs and abs; to bodyweight exercises; followed a month or so later with a kettle bell routine; then a dumbbell program etc. etc.
No workout program or particular routine has ever made a significant difference to my physique.
Sure I’ve been able to improve my overall fitness and increase my muscle mass a little, but not to the degree I’ve always wanted.
Since I started focusing almost entirely on performing compound exercises, my physique, body-fat and overall strength have notably improved.
