What are the compound lifts?

Compound Movements. A compound movement can be defined as: Any exercise that engages two or more different joints to fully stimulate entire muscle groups and, indeed, multiple muscles. More major muscle groups can be hit with a smaller number of exercises.

Do compound exercises build more muscle?

If you can't increase the amount of work you are doing, you can't cause adaptations that will require the body to build more muscle. The compound exercises help build that base of strength, but they are not going to shape the muscles the way you want. This is why bodybuilders make heavy use of isolation exercises.
