What are Combination Exercise Videos?

Combination exercise is a generic name for any movement which is essentially 2 exercises in one. Combination exercises have become popular in recent years as people have been moving away from the isolation exercise heavy traditional routines to workouts which are more functional.

Although 'functional training' is a word that has been thrown around a lot lately and is beginning to lose meaning, most combination exercises are functional exercises. Functional exercises are supposed to mimic activities of daily living and most combination exercises do just that as they involve simultaneous upper and lower body movements.

Why Combination Exercises?

The reason to perform combination exercise is simple; maximize your time. Many personal trainers consider these exercises to lose weight quickly as they squeeze in as much work for your muscles as possible in a short amount of time. These exercises are not for everyone as they can require quite a bit coordination and be very strenuous.

Combination exercises are especially effective for busting through a training plateau, improving muscle endurance, and they are great for those who simply want to achieve a goal in the quickest amount of time. Working small muscle groups at the same time as the larger lower body also gets your heart rate up quickly, providing a circuit-training effect which can help improve your cardiovascular system as well.

Safety Precautions for Combination Exercises Videos

Since combination exercises require you to basically perform two exercises at the same time, knowing the proper form of the individual exercises is a prerequisite for anyone who wishes to benefit from combination exercises. These are definitely not for the beginner so be smart, take your time, and learn each individual exercise before you attempt to perform two simultaneous resistance training exercises.

The primary precaution with most of the combination exercises is foot placement. Whether you're doing a squat, lunge or step-up, making sure you step in the proper place will ensure you don't trip and fall. Falling with a pair of dumbbells can be dangerous regardless of position. Especially be careful when performing combination exercises with a step-up. Make sure the step is set at a manageable height and take your time. None of these combination exercises are meant to be performed fast, so a slow and controlled tempo is a must to get the most benefits.
