A split routine is a routine that focuses on training different muscle groups on different days.[1] It is most often employed to prevent excess fatigue or overtraining. Some common examples of this are back/biceps on one day, chest/shoulders/triceps another, and lower body another, etc. There are countless combinations of split routines.
