Mayhem Bodybuilding Goals

Mayhem Bodybuilding is a stand alone hypertrophy focused program. You may layer this on top of some of the other Mayhem Athlete Program, but it is not designed to be performed on top of all other tracks each day. We will include pieces of some days in other programs as “ACCESSORY”. The goals are to stay focused and rest just long enough so that you can perform the next set with quality and control unless stated otherwise. Keep your attention of each set and keep your phone in your bag. Sessions are not done “for time” but treat them like you are limited on time. Keep a visible clock running to keep you accountable.

Focus: Effort should be easy building into moderate. Get yourself moving and opened up for upcoming work.

Strength

Bench Press (Find a 1RM)

*Rest 2:00-2:30 b/t sets

Focus: Control should be shown with each rep on the way down and on the way up. Bar should be lowered to just below the sternum. Keep elbows at a 45 degree angle to the body and avoid flaring out. Shoulders should be loaded back against the bench throughout reps.

Barbell Incline Bench Press (4 sets: 10 reps)

*Rest 1:00-1:30 b/t sets

*Build to a moderate weight and stay the same or build across all sets.

Focus: Control should be shown with each rep on the way down and on the way up. Incline of bench should be around a 45-60 degree incline. Bar should be lowered to just below the sternum. Keep elbows at a 45 degree angle to the body and avoid flaring out. Shoulders should be loaded back against the bench throughout reps.

Hex Press (4 sets: 10 Reps)

*Rest 1:00-1:30 b/t sets

Focus: Sitting back on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand, assume a neutral grip position and press the dumbbells to the ceiling and together. Perform a DB bench while maintain a neutral grip and dumbbells pushed together throughout the pressing motion.

Incline Bench DB Chest Fly (4 sets: 12 reps)

*Rest 1:00-1:30 b/t sets

Focus: Lying on an incline bench, extend two dumbbells towards the ceiling. Keeping a slight bend in the elbows, lower the dumbbells out to the sides. Dumbbells should be kept in line with the sternum or slightly lower. Shoulders should be loaded back against the bench through the entire movement. Refrain from going deeper than the level of the bench at end range.

Standing KB Crush Grip Bicep Curl (4 sets: 10 reps)

*Rest 1:00-1:30 b/t sets

Focus: In a standing position, take a KB and grasp it between both hands around the bell portion (not the handles). Palms will be facing each other on either side of the bell. Be mindful of the positioning of the handles so they don’t hit the face. Curl the KB up and then lower, stopping just before tension is lost in the biceps.

DB Preacher Curl (4 sets: 10 reps)

*Rest 1:00-1:30 b/t sets

*Build to a light/moderate weight. Stay the same and focus on strict control throughout

Focus: Using either an incline bench or the rounded portion of a GHD pad, brace the back of the upper arm against the bench/pad. The bench/pad is used to completely isolate on the bicep and remove assistance from body/shoulder. Attempt very light weight before working sets to get a feel for range of motion/amount of isolation that is placed on the bicep. DO NOT OVERLOAD THIS MOVEMENT BY GOING TOO HEAVY. Curl the DB with one arm braced against the pad and then switch to the other side and complete on the opposite arm to finish the set.

Cooldown/Mobility

1 min Pec Stretch against Door/Rig

1 min Lacrosse Ball Pec Smash (each side)

1 min Overhead Elbow Grab Tricep stretch (each side)

1 min Bicep Wall Stretch (each side)

Focus: Do your mobility work to keep range of motion. Pec Stretch consists of raising bent arm to the side to make an “L”, raise arm so that upper arm is at a 45 degree angle to the neck and place forearm against rig/door frame. Slowly lean into stretch.

Bicep wall stretch consists of facing a wall and placing a palm on the wall with fingers towards the floor. Slowly turn the torso away from the hand to facilitate a stretch in the bicep and forearm. Higher placement on the wall will result in a bigger stretch.

Mayhem Mini-Pump

Mini-Pump Sessions are used as a supplement to another Mayhem Athlete track or on days when you are pressed for time and cannot complete the full day’s bodybuilding session as programmed. You should NOT complete today’s bodybuilding program AND the mini-pump session. Choose one or the other.
