Top five must-try workouts for women

Today, women have become conscious about their fitness and have started considering it a lifestyle. The right kind of exercise is crucial for overall well-being. So if you are a gym freak, try a combination of these compound workouts to stay fit and look sexy:

A full-body compound workout, deadlift simulates the action of picking up a heavy object off the floor. This single workout involves multiple muscles of your body and hence when you sweat it out, you don’t have to worry about not training all your muscles — they will feel the burn anyway! The target muscles include glutes, hips, thighs, back, shoulders, and core.

Barbell walking lunges
Lunges are best if you want to shape your legs and glutes. While the main muscles being targeted are your quadriceps and glutes, the lunges work equally well on your hamstrings, calves, and core as well! 

Squats with shoulder press
Squatting by itself is a simple yet formidable exercise that works on your entire body, but add a shoulder workout to it and you have an amazing full body exercise. The target muscles include upper legs, shoulders, glutes, hips and hamstrings.

Kettlebell swing
Kettlebell swings boost your strength and stamina. The workout helps hips, glutes, hamstrings, lats, core, abs, shoulders, pecs, and grip muscles.

Burpees don’t require any equipment and are known as one of the best fat-busters. The target muscles include calves, thighs, glutes, abs, chest, arms, shoulders, and back.
