Women's Home and Gym Workout Routines

4-Week: 3-day & 5-day split training program

New year, strong you.

2021 is the year of getting fit, no matter where you are.

Some of us are still working out at home, while others are fortunate enough to get a gym access.

Whether you want to lose fat, get toned, improve strength; these women's 3-day and 5-day workout routines will help you get strong and resilient at home or at the gym.

These workout plans will primarily target your legs and glutes, but it will also help you build upper body and core strength.

The different home and gym workout plans

The home workout plans will focus on body weight only exercises, but you can use resistance bands and other equipment if you have access to them.

Gym workouts will assume you have access to all gym equipment: barbell, dumbbell, machines, cables, treadmill, etc.

Therefore, don't hesitate to adjust these workout routines according to your needs.

The workouts will change and increase in difficulty every week.

Some workouts will be harder than others, and they're organized in a way for you to fully recover between workouts.

Each training plan is 4-week long, and we will show you the first two weeks of each workout routine.

We will be using certain training terms in this article:

  • RPE: Rate of Perceived Exertion, is a way to measure the intensity of an activity, which ranges from 0 to 10. In strength training, RPE 10 (Max Effort) means no rep in reserve, whereas 8 RPE (Vigorous) means 2 reps in reserve. For example, 8 reps x 2 RPE means that you need to find a weight heavy enough to do 10 reps, but you only perform 8 reps (2 reps in reserve).
  • Failure: perform the movement until you can't do any more reps. Think of it as RPE 10. For example, 10 reps x failure means that you will have to find a weight that you can lift for 10 reps, nothing more.
  • Alternate: right side, left side, right side, etc.
