Thump, thump, thump.

That’s the sound of our latest fat-destroying, body-shredding behemoth. It’s coming for you. We really hope you’re ready.

Whether you’re brand new to the workout world, crunched for time, or tired of monotonous marathon workouts, September’s WOTM—The 3-Day Body Shredder Workout Splitwill change the game. It’s the perfect stimulus for anyone looking to get their body on track and construct a KILLER foundation, kick their workouts into uber-high gear, or switch it up and burst through a lingering plateau.

So what are you getting yourself into?

The Body Shredder Workout Split is a full-body, physique-blasting program that’s comprised of three different workout plans, each of which drills deep and works synergistically to plow through a given region of the body.

  • Workout A — Upper Body + Arms
  • Workout B — Legs + Butt
  • Workout C — ABS ABS ABS + HIIT

It’s stuffed with high-velocity supersets, muscle-thrashing dumbbell moves—which improve mobility and tear up individual muscle groups—and fat-melting HIIT cardio, all of which combine to open the sweat floodgates and keep them flowing for 60 minutes straight; eviscerate muscle fibers, in a way that sends lactic acid bubbling up like a raging volcano; and put your heart in overdrive.

Think of it as a metabolic furnace — and one that’ll put your metabolism into overdrive during your workout and long afterwards. You know, when you’re sitting on the couch binging on Netflix. NETFLIX WORKOUTS.

Roll it out consistently and you’ll gradually transform your flabby belly into a full-blown abdominal masterpiece, pack on layers of fresh muscle mass, and build muscular strength and endurance. All in one tight, rhythmic schedule.

The 3-Day Body Shredder Workout Split is designed to run 3-6 days per week, but it’s completely adaptable based on your schedule and availability. This is a HIGH-VELOCITY workout program. Keep it fast and furious, with rest periods between 30 secs – 1 minute MAX.

Naturally, the more intense the schedule, the quicker you’ll see results and transform your body — and the more that stellar nutrition and recovery tactics become CRITICAL. Shoot for 4-6 workouts every week.

There’s only one major rule: roll out the workouts in order (A→B→C) and continue to cycle. Three sample week-long splits could look like:

  • Relaxed Split: A → OFF → B → OFF → C → OFF → OFF
  • Advanced Split: A → B → OFF → C → A → OFF → OFF
  • BEAST MODE Split: A → B → C → OFF → A → B → C

Got it? Good. Pick your poison and GET AFTER IT.

    Hey Bryan!
    One quick question about this workout. Is it meant to be done as a circuit (do all exercises once then repeat the entire thing) or am I supposed to do each exercise for the recommended set amount before moving on to the next exercise? This always confuses me :-/
    Love, love, love these workouts!! The upper body workouts kept my sanity intact while I spent 8 weeks on crutches earlier this year. Thanks so much!!

    • Hey Sarah!

      For EVERYTHING we post it’s always the same — do all the sets for a given exercise and then more onto the next one. So you’ll do 3 sets of the DB rows and then move on to the supersets in #2.

      The only time it’ll vary is if I roll out a “circuit” and lay it out as such, but that’ll be explained fully.

      But maybe I should drop a quick line in the plans to clarify, smart idea!

      Thanks so much, so glad you’re loving the workouts. If you ever need anything I’m easy to reach on Insta or Twitter (@brydisanto, @leanitup)

  • Harry

    How many weeks should i do this on an ideal basis?

    • Stick with it for 6-8 weeks and then switch to another split. That’s about the time frame when your body will start to adapt.

      But monitor your progress — if you’re still seeing gains after 2 months, keep rolling with it. Don’t mess with what’s working.
