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)

Shoulder and Glutes

Crossover Symmetry Warm-up

-into-

Hip Halo Warm-up
Focus: Move with intention and focus on each movement you are performing

Strength

Shoulder Press (7 sets: 6 reps @ RPE 7/10)

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

* Warm up and build across all 6 sets. The sets should be 5-10 lbs heavier than last week.

Focus: Take barbell from the rig. Keep abs and glutes engaged to prevent over-extension of the low back. Use a slightly staggered stance if needed to prevent over extension. Barbell should make contact with the upper chest/shoulders between reps but you should not lose tension between reps by resting the bar in the front rack. Attempt to add a small increase from previous week’s loading.

Seated Arnold Press (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

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

Focus: From a seated position, raise a dumbbell in each hand to the shoulders with palms facing the body. When pressing overhead, turn the hands during the press to finish with palms facing away from the body. Avoid overextending in the low back during this movement by keeping the core engaged throughout.

Ring Y Raise

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

Focus: Setup up a pair of rings around waist height. Grab a ring in each hand and, keeping the arms straight, lean back away from the rings with arms in front of the body. Pull the rings back/overhead with straight arms into a Y position until locked out overhead. Position of the feet should be far enough from the rings that tension can still be felt in the shoulders throughout the movement but close enough that movement is able to be controlled at all times.

4 sets: 10 reps

Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap Protocol

Complete Iron Scap Protocol

Focus: Use band weight that is challenging but allows for quality of movement. If you do not have access to a crossover symmetry set, substitute 4 sets of 10 bent over lateral dumbbell raises.

GHD Hip Extension (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: Set up GHD so hips are slightly past the hip pad. Go down to 90 degrees and raise to parallel. Avoid using excessive momentum to complete reps and squeeze glutes at the top of each rep.

Lateral Band Walk (4 sets: 30 yards (each way))

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

Focus: Using a moderate weight resistance band around the legs (just above the knees), stand with knees slightly and bent and out against the band. Perform lateral steps for the required number of repetitions, insuring that the knees do not dip in during steps.

Russian Kettlebell Swing (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

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

Focus: Start with the KB on the ground in front of the body. Hike the KB to the hips and use a violent hip extension of the hips to drive the KB to shoulder height. Torso should stay vertical at the top of the swing and lats should be engaged to drive the KB back down. Athlete should make sure that glutes and core are engaged for a solid hollow position at apex of swing.
