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)

Upper Body Posterior (Back & Triceps)

3 Rounds

15/12 cal Row

10 Scap Pull-ups

15 Bent Over Barbell Rows (empty bar)

5 Iron Cross (each side)

5 Down Dog/Seal Pose Transitions
Focus: Effort should be easy building into moderate. Get yourself moving and opened up for upcoming work.

Strength

Strict Pull-ups (7 sets: 6 reps @ RPE 7/10)

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

Focus: Control should be shown across sets. Athlete should keep core engaged and avoid kipping. Band across rig is encouraged if strict reps are not possible and should be set at a height that allows for desired number of rep but no more. If using a band, make note of the hole that you are placing the back across the rig to keep consistency on resistance assistance across workouts.

Body Row on Racked Barbell (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

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

Focus: Set up a bar at waist height. It is advised to secure the bar to the rig with bands on either side so that bar will not unrack during sets. Approach bar from inside of rig. Extend legs out and grab bar from underneath, assuming a solid plank position. Pull towards the bar, making contact just below the sternum. Adjust feet as needed for correct position. Difficulty should allow for solid reps without “kipping” reps. Raise height of the bar to decrease difficulty. Feet can be placed on a bench or stacked plates to increase difficulty.

Single Arm Lat Pulldown (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: On a seated lat pull machine, attach a single handle. Grasp with one hand and pull down to shoulder height. Keep the torso balanced during the pull, meaning that you shouldn’t lean away or towards the handle as the movement is performed. Position of the hand will be more neutral rather than a prorated grip like a traditional lat pulludown. Knees are locked under the leg pad and arm is extended overhead. Focus on a strong contraction of the back/pulling back with the elbow not the hands. If you do not have access to a lat pulldown machine, attach a single band to a pullup bar and perform this movement. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING.

Lying DB Pullover on Bench (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: Lying on a bench, hold a dumbbell by the upper head in both hands. Keeping a slight bend in the arms, lower the dumbbell back towards the floor. Engagement should be felt in the lats/upper back. Only go back as far as control in the lift is still felt and start light to get a feel for the movement. Avoid overarching the back to facilitate a greater range of motion; core should remain engaged throughout. Suggested lying on the bench sideways so the upper back is the supported area by the bench (just ensure that bench is secured to prevent tipping over).

Standing Tricep DB French Press (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

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

Focus: In a standing position, take one dumbbell and hold it by the upper DB head with arms extended overhead. Keeping the elbows tucked and pointed at the ceiling, lower the weight behind the head. Extend back overhead to complete. Be sure to keep core engaged and avoid overextension in the low back.
