Compound Lifts

Compound lifts are essential for Halim in his workout routine. He uses them to build lean muscle and hit multiple muscle groups at once. Doing so also gives his body a cardiovascular workout and raises his heart rate, which leads to useful fat loss.

One of his favorite compound lifts is the deadlift. He completes this lift with a heavy barbell, as well as with a light barbell.

With the heavy weight, he limits his reps to maximize the weight he can use. When he uses a lighter barbell, he completes as many reps as possible and incorporates drop sets to obtain maximum results.

Another useful compound lift which Halim includes is the bench press. Halim prides himself on his well-defined chest, so he spends a lot of time in the gym benching heavily in order to stimulate this area.
