Lifters typically complete LP on a 3-day-a-week total body program. At some point, it makes sense for most lifters to move to a 4-day-a-week program, with one day emphasizing the primarily lower body lifts (squat and deadlift) and the other day emphasizing the primarily upper body lifts (bench and press).
The 4-day split increases the frequency of the upper body lifts from an average of 1.5 times weekly to twice weekly. It decreases the frequency of the lower body lifts from 3 times weekly to twice weekly, removing the light Wednesday slot. The 4-day split also decreases the length of each workout and allows for supplemental and accessory work as the lifter advances.
The 4-day split is a tool in the MED tool kit to help lifters continue to progress.
