What is a split strength program?
A split program or split routine is a popular weight training format with intelligently designed workouts that each focus on a body part or certain muscle groups. It is designed so that you can work out for several consecutive days without taxing the same muscle (prime movers) groups again.
Benefits of Split Training
With a good split program, there is less chance of overtraining than with repeating full-body workouts. With this program, your strength will improve, as well as your overall health, posture, and protection against injury.
The program consists of at least 4 strength workouts that are repeated for 12 weeks as a repeating cycle, with the objective of progressive strength. The 12 weeks are 3 at 70 to 80% of 1RM, 1 heavier, 3 at 70 to 80%, 2 heavier, 1 deload, 1 set new 1RM, and 1 rest. The workout cycle can be repeated as long as you’re making progress.
The workouts are split into the following days:
Day 1: Shoulders and chest
Day 2: Legs
Day 3: Back and abs
Day 4: Arms and upper back

The exercises are done with a kettlebell or bodyweight. Alternatives and progressions are available so that the program is accessible to a range of fitness levels. To start, you only need one kettlebell. To get stronger and see serious results, you will need to eventually invest in additional kettlebells that will allow for progressive overload.
The program includes a focus on TUT (time under tension), slow and controlled movements, mastering the exercises, progressive overload, and even some isometric work. For beginners, we explain how to ease into the program. Seasoned kettlebell enthusiasts can jump straight in. Some of the work is performed with double kettlebells, including the squat, chest press, and shoulder press, but the program explains how to work with just one kettlebell if that’s what you have access to.

- Is this only for advanced kettlebell training?
No, the material covers alternatives and progressions for beginners.
- Is this just for men?
No, in fact, one of the trainers in the videos is a woman.
- Do I need more than one kettlebell?
No, but for progressive overload and increased results you will need to buy another kettlebell once you reach that point.
- Do I need to watch all the video content?
No, you can just turn on the follow-along workouts, but we highly recommend watching all technique videos at least once.
- Do I need to read the books?
No, but they contain a lot of information that will keep you safe and allow for a better understanding of the program.
- How many weeks should I do this workout?
For as long as you keep progressing.
- How long does each workout take?
The reps and rounds are low volume but slow and TUT-focused. Each workout takes about 45 to 90 minutes to complete.
- Do I need to do the full 45 to 90 minutes?
When you first start with kettlebells/this workout, the workouts will be shorter, but as you improve you will need to spend more time.
- Can I spend more time?
Yes, we highly recommend increasing your active recovery between sets or rounds if you have the time available.
- Can I turn it into 2 days?
Yes, but you will need to have double the time available on your workout days.
- Can I turn it into 3 days?
Yes, the 6-day split is a repeat of 3 days (muscle groups worked twice)
- Do I need to program a rest day in between some of the 4 days or can they be done consecutively?
They can be done consecutively but a lot of effort is required from the stabilizers when working with kettlebells and therefore a day’s rest between some of the days may be recommended.

If you need to mix it up, you can come and join our weekly online workouts instead which are always different.
