The Complete 4 – Week Beginner’s Workout Program

WEEK 3: THREE DAY SPLIT

The third week of the program takes the workout into a three-day split. The muscle groups are dived into three groups. The first day of the split is focused on chest, shoulder, and triceps. The group consisting of back, biceps, and abs is trained on the second day, while the third day is reserved for the lower body. You also increase the number of training days to six, since you get to train each muscle group twice a week.

By adding one new movement for each muscle group routine, you provide new angles in training the targeted muscles, and achieving ampler development. Each muscle group is trained in two exercises consisting of 3 to 4 sets. You do 4 sets for the larger muscle groups, and three for the smaller muscle groups. By increasing the number of sets per week, and sticking to the 8 to 15 rep ranges, you greatly increase the volume compared to the first week.
