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

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 (8 sets: 4 reps @ RPE 7.5/10)

*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.

Bent Over Barbell Row – Underhand Grip (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: With a double underhand grip, deadlift bar to waist and then lower to a hang position (right above the knees) to start each set. Aim to pull with the elbows (rather than the hands) and bringing the bar to the hips (do not pull high towards the upper abdomen). Focus on getting a strong back contraction with each rep. Minimize the amount of kipping used between reps and feel the stretch in the lats/upper back when lowering the bar back to the hang position with each rep.

Lat Pulldowns (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: On a seated lat pull machine, position body so knees are locked under the leg pad and arms are extended overhead. With an overhand grip, focus on a strong contraction of the back/pulling back with the elbow not the hands. Bar should come right below the chin to the top of the chest. Slight lean back is acceptable to get shoulders in a down and back position. If you do not have access to a lat pulldown, attach a PVC pipe to a pullup bar via two bands and perform this movement. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING.

Double DB Prone Row (4 sets: 10 reps)

4 sets: 10 reps

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

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

Seated Tricep DB French Press (4 sets: 12 reps)

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

Focus: In a seated 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. For ease of setup, have a partner load and unload the DB from your hands before and after sets.

Standing Tricep Extension w/ band (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: Attach band to pull-up bar overhead. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING. Resistance should allow for control throughout the extension. Avoid going to complete lockout at the bottom: focusing on stopping just before full extension. Focus on engagement of triceps with each rep and stop before failure is reached. Torso should be slightly bent forward arms/elbows slightly in front of body
