WHAT MAKES THIS SPLIT AWESOME!
Back To Top

This split is another good one for those who are on the intermediate level and able to dedicate four solid workouts a week to their training at approximately one hour in length per workout. The goal of this workout is primarily to build mass, but with dumbbells as variation for many of the compound lifts performed, strength building is a likely result of following this plan properly. Keep all rest between sets at approximately 1.5-2 minutes, and train with a training partner where possible. As always, if you have any questions of concerns about this split, feel feel to contact me.
