A compound set workout is meant to tax the same muscle group in each set, first with an explosive movement, followed by a strength movement with a (VERY) heavy weight.

The setup: You need at least two heavy dumbbells, a medicine ball, a suspension tool (like a TRX) and at least 1 heavy kettlebell.

The workout: Perform 4 rounds of each set. The second exercise in each set should be VERY HEAVY! Complete each set before moving onto the next.
