There is nothing better than feeling like you got the better end of a deal. It could be when you go out and buy a new car and feel as if you really put the screws to that salesman, or when you go into the local grocery store with a fist full of coupons and the cashier and the bag boy look at each other like, “Oh, snap. We about to get fleeced here, this is one savvy shopper.”
The same idea carries over to the exercise world. There is no better way to save time and get a great workout in then using exercise combos in your workouts. Now, just like the real world, you don’t want to get too carried away with throwing these little magic gems into your workout or you will find yourself with enough canned cat food and toilet paper for the next decade.
Essentially you will be sick of them and you will never want to do them again, so stick to just one or two in your workouts.
