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.

Warm-up (No Measure)

Lower Body Push/Pull

Hip Halo Activation

-into-

3 rounds

15/12 Bike Erg

5 Cossack Squats (each side)

10 Kang Squats (empty barbell)
Focus: Effort should be easy building into moderate. Get yourself moving and opened up for upcoming work.

Strength

Back Squat (Find a 1RM)

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

Focus: High bar position. Controlled speed down and up. Stop just before full lockout at the top of each rep for added time under tension on legs.

Deadlift (Find a 1RM)

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

Focus: High bar position. Controlled speed down and up. Stop just before full lockout at the top of each rep for added time under tension on legs.

Back Racked Barbell Box Step-ups (4 sets: 10 reps (each side))

*Rest 1:30-2:00 b/t sets

*Build to a moderate weight; stay the same or build across sets

Focus: With a bar in the back rack position and a 20” box, step up on top of the box to full extension. Repeat on the opposite side. Taking a breath in and breathing out as the step is completed will assist in stability and core engagement.

Elevated Toe Double DB Romanian Deadlift (4 sets: 8 reps (each side))

4 sets: 10 reps

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

*Build to a moderate weight; stay the same or build across sets

Spanish Squat (4 sets: 10 reps (each side))

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

*Build to a moderate weight; stay the same or build across sets

Focus: Anchor a thick resistance band to a rig at knee height. Step intro band and place band on the back of the calves below the knee. Hold a KB or DB in a goblet position and squat to parallel and lean back slightly against the band. Squat just below parallel and push the leg back into the band while standing. Done properly, athletes will feel constant tension in the quads throughout this movement. Perform with bodyweight only at first to get a feel for proper loading throughout range of motion. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING.

Standing Barbell Calf Raise (4 sets: 15-20 reps)

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

*Build to a moderate weight; stay the same or build across sets

Focus: Elevate feet so that you can pass below parallel to the floor with the heels. Drive through the big toe at extension. If needed, use rig to guide bar through movement so you don’t lose your balance. *Make sure that platform you are standing on will not flip when standing on edge

Sneaky way to get otherwise sensitive folk to tolerate the foam roller. Movement without motion = increased tolerance.
