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 (6 sets: 8 reps @ RPE 6.5/10 (heavier than last time we saw this weight))

*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 (6 sets: 8 reps @ RPE 6.5/10 (heavier than last time we saw this weight))

*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.

Barbell Step Through Lunges (4 sets: 10 reps (each side))

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

Focus: Folding a barbell in the back rack, athletes will perform a stepback lunge and then step up and directly into a forward lunge on the same leg. Return to a standing position and repeat on the opposite leg. Weight should allow for control throughout reps. Hand positioning on barbell can be adjusted to find the most comfortable, but stable support.

Band Pull Through (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

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

Focus: Attach a moderate/heavy weight band to a rig at knee height. Turn away from the rig and grasp the band with each hand with a thumb forward grip between the legs. Step forward and lean forward slightly when the band is under tension. Hinge by pushing the hips back and then forcefully contract the glutes to drive the hips forward to full extension. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING.

Seated Dumbbell Calf Raise (4 sets: 15-20 reps)

*Rest 1:30-2:00 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 dumbbells on the knees to load this movement *Make sure that platform you have toes on will not flip when loading on edge

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