Default Real Results 4 Day Upper Lower Split Workout

Real Results 4 Day Upper Lower Split Workout

By BendTheBar

This 4 day upper, lower split could be considered a powerbuilding program. It allows you to build strength and muscle, and is perfect for the lifter who is not competing right now, but may want to get involved with bodybuilding or powerlifting in the future.

While upper, lower splits are very common in the powerlifting realm, they are rarely utilized in modern split-driven bodybuilding. Do not shy away from this program for that reason. It is structured to assist a natural lifter in building maximum muscle, while adding as much strength as possible.

Workouts structure is as follows:
  • Monday Chest, Back, Shoulders and Arms.
  • Tuesday Legs, Abs, Posterior Chain (Glutes, Traps, Lower Back, etc.)
  • Thursday Chest, Back, Shoulders and Arms.
  • Friday Legs, Abs, Posterior Chain (Glutes, Traps, Lower Back, etc.)

You can also frame this workout approach based on the 4 major lifts, bench press, overhead press, squats and deadlifts:
  • Monday Bench Press and Overhead Press.
  • Tuesday Squats and Deadlifts.
  • Thursday Bench Press and Overhead Press.
  • Friday Squats and Deadlifts.
