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 (9 sets: 3 reps @ RPE 8/10)

*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 Alternating Double DB Shoulder Press (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

Focus: From a seated position, raise a dumbbell in each hand to the shoulders. Press overhead to full lockout and return to shoulders. Leaving one dumbbell extended overhead, lower the other dumbbell to the shoulder and press overhead. Repeat on the opposite side. For comfort in range of motion, dumbbell can come to the shoulder in more of a neutral grip position and finish in a pronated grip overhead (similar to an Arnold press motion without the full supinated grip at the shoulder).

Leaning Lateral Raise (4 sets: 10 reps (each side))

4 sets: 10 reps (each side)

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

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

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.

Rear Foot Elevated DB Split 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: Set up a platform or bar slightly below knee level. Standing in front and facing away from this platform, place the top of the rear foot on the platform and the forward foot far enough ahead so that the back knee can be lowered to the floor with the heel of the forward foot staying in contact with the floor throughout reps. Holding dumbbells in each hand, lunge on the forward leg until the back knee contacts the floor or you reach the end of your range of motion (do not force ROM). To stand, contract the glute on the working side and drive the ground away with the working foot. Consider using straps during this movement so that grip is not a limiting factor for sets. This movement can also be performed at bodyweight with no dumbbells if preferred.

Single leg DB Romanian Deadlift (4 sets: 10 reps (each side))

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

Focus: Holding dumbbells in each hand, stand on one foot. Bend at the waist and allow the non-working leg to extend backwards for counter balance. Working leg should have a slight bend throughout rep. Continue forward with the dumbbells until the upper/lower back begins to round or right before contact is made with the dumbbells and the floor (whichever comes first). Aim for this movement is level, balance movement throughout rep (no leaning to left or right) and control of body and dumbbells throughout rep. Do not sacrifice either of these for an increase in weight. To stand, contract the glute on the working side. Consider using straps during this movement so that grip is not a limiting factor for sets. This movement can also be performed at bodyweight with no dumbbells if preferred.
