SplitStrong 35 is a free, split training workout program for women that delivers long-term results — 35 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

I used to think that to get an effective, fat burning workout, you had to do an all out full body workout every day. But I wasn’t seeing the muscle definition I desired and I was tired at the end of every week.

That’s why I created SplitStrong 35, a 2-week program that follows a 5-day workout split (which means we’ll split train specific muscle groups). We’ll build strength and gain muscle definition while providing appropriate time for rest and muscle recovery.

Each day comes with a follow-along workout video. All you have to do is press play! I’ll coach you through every rep, offering form cues, modifications and motivation along the way.

SplitStrong 35 Workout Program Details

1. Gym Equipment Needed:

A Set of DumbbellsMost of the daily workouts require a set of dumbbells. Each weight training workout will have a recommended dumbbell weight, usually between 8-20 pounds. You want a weight heavy enough that your last few reps are a struggle, but you are still able to complete the workout with good form.

Optional Exercise Equipment: 

Towel/Sliders/Gliders for a cardio and core workout.

2. Time Requirement: 

Workouts are 35 minutes per day, 5 days per week.

This plan includes 2 rest days per week. You get to choose which days are your rest days. I suggest resting after day two or three and then again after day five. OR complete days 1-5 and then rest on days 6-7. The goal is to make this plan work for YOU!

If you’re a runner, I would suggest completing 2-3 of the strength workouts per week. So your training plan would look like:

Week One: 

Day 2: Upper Body Push Workout

Day 3: Legs and Glutes Workout

Day 4 or 5: Power Yoga OR Cardio and Core

Week Two: 

Day 7: Upper Body Pull Workout

Day 8: Unilateral Leg Workout

Day 9 or 10: Mobility Flow OR Cardio and Core

3. Fitness Level:

Intermediate to advanced, with modifications offered for all fitness levels in the daily workout videos.

4. Cost:

Split Training Workout Program FAQs

What Is A Split Training Workout Program?

A split training workout program divides weight training sessions by muscle group. For example, you might train lower body on Monday and upper body on Tuesday (as opposed to training full body every day).

What Is The Best Workout Split?

In my opinion, the most effective workout split is an upper body pull day (focusing on the back and biceps), an upper body push day (focusing on the shoulders, chest and triceps) and a leg day. This split will allow you to reach for heavy weights, fatiguing muscle groups so you build muscle.

Is A Split Training Workout Program Effective?

Split workout programs maximize muscle growth because you can dedicate an entire strength training session to one muscle group at a time. That means you can fully fatigue the muscles and target them from a variety of angles. You’ll also allow ample recovery time as you target a different muscle group the next day.

Is A Split Training Workout Program Good For Beginners?

If you are new to working out, you might start with a full-body routine that will allow you to learn proper techniques while building your overall strength and fitness. You can find beginner workout plans here, and a functional strength training workout plan for beginners here.
