Compound and isolation exercises are two forms of exercises used in strength and conditioning training. The main difference between these two types of exercises is that compound uses a large variety of muscles and more than one joint, whilst an isolation exercise focuses on one muscle or muscle group and typically uses only one joint movement.
The base compound movements used in strength and conditioning are the bench press, squat, deadlift, overhead press, pull up and barbell row . These exercises are known as the foundation movements in weight training. All of these movements use 2 or more joints and 2 or more muscle groups and most of them require a barbell. All of these movements can be performed with the Renegade Power Rack Starter Package. You receive a Power Rack, Barbell, Bench and weight plates to do all the movements.
Isolation exercises are a more direct way of training a muscle group. Isolation movements typically use only one joint and focus solely on one specific muscle group. There are many variations of isolation exercises, some of which are the leg extension, bicep curl, triceps pushdown, calf raise, leg curl, lateral raise and cable fly. You can perform all of these moments with a Force USA G10. The adjustable pulleys allow you to do all of these exercises and more.
Both Isolation and Compound exercises are beneficial for muscle development but each have their own benefits towards reaching your goals. Feel free to call us on 4647 1119 and speak to one of our Home Gym experts and see how you can get your home gym started today.
