Barbell Logic

Oct 30, 2020

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.
