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 Anterior (Chest & Bicep)

Crossover Symmetry Warm-p

-into-

3 rounds

10 Perfect Push-ups (controlled form)

15 Band Pull-A-Parts

5 PVC Around the Worlds (each) way)

10 wall angels

5 scorpions (each side)
Focus: Effort should be easy building into moderate. Get yourself moving and opened up for upcoming work.

Strength

Bench Press (7/5/3/1/3/5/7) (7 sets: (7/5/3/1/3/5/7))

Focus: Control should be shown with each rep on the way down and on the way up. Bar should be lowered to just below the sternum. Keep elbows at a 45 degree angle to the body and avoid flaring out. Shoulders should be loaded back against the bench throughout reps.

7 Sets

Set 1: 7 reps

Set 2: 5 reps

Set 3: 3 reps

Set 4: 1 reps

Set 5: 3 reps

Set 6: 5 reps

Set 7: 7 reps

*Pyramid sets. Athletes have 7 sets of building and reducing weight across sets. Weight selected should be moderately challenging for the reps on that set. This means that athlete should be able to complete the required number of reps but would experience a form breakdown if attempting more reps at that weight for that set. Weight increases as reps decrease and athletes will use the same weight for both 7 rep sets. Slightly heavier weight is used for 5 reps sets (same weight for both). Slightly heavier weight is used for 3 reps sets (same weight for both). Heaviest weight is used for 1 rep set.

Barbell Incline Bench Press (4 sets: 7 reps )

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

*Build to a moderate weight and stay the same or build across all sets.

Focus: Control should be shown with each rep on the way down and on the way up. Incline of bench should be around a 45-60 degree incline. Bar should be lowered to just below the sternum. Keep elbows at a 45 degree angle to the body and avoid flaring out. Shoulders should be loaded back against the bench throughout reps.

1:1:2 DB Bench (4 sets: 10 reps )

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

*Build to a moderate weight and stay the same or build across all sets.

Focus: Select a weight that you can control when sitting back to start and sitting up to finishing set. Lay back on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Extend arms to the ceiling. 1 rep consists of: Single arm bench with left arm (right arm remains extended), single arm bench with right arm (left arm remains extended), and then a double db bench rep with both arms. Lower dumbbells down to the outside of the chest. Do not drop the dumbbells. To avoid injury, bring the knees up to meet the dumbbells and sit up with them. If you have to drop them to deload, you’ve gone too heavy.

Resistance Band Chest Fly – High to Low (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: On a rig, loop a resistance band on each side (light to moderate light resistance weight) above head level. Facing away from rig, grasp a band in each hand. Starting with arms extended to the sides and a forward lean (stagger feet for stabilization), press the bands forward with slightly bent arms, crossing over in front of the body at waist level. Return out to the sides and repeat, crossing the opposite arm on top from the last rep. Slight bend in the arm should be maintained throughout reps (excessive bending of the elbow will place focus on triceps rather than chest)

Incline Dumbbell Hammer Curls (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

*Build to a light/moderate weight. Stay the same and focus on strict control throughout

Focus: Done with athlete laying on their back on an incline bench with dumbbells in both hands. The movement places a large amount of isolation on the bicep so do not be tempted to go too heavy with this movement. Unlike a regular curl, there is no rotation of the dumbbell on the way up. Do not sacrifice form/control for weight.

Barbell Curl 21’s (3 sets: 21 reps)

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

Focus: Standing with a barbell perform 7 reps from waist to parallel, 7 reps from top of rep to parallel, 7 reps full range of motion. Ensure that you do not sacrifice quality over quantity with this exercise.

Cooldown/Mobility

1 min Pec Stretch against Door/Rig

1 min Lacrosse Ball Pec Smash (each side)

1 min Overhead Elbow Grab Tricep Stretch (each side)

1 min Bicep Wall Stretch (each side)

Focus: Do your mobility work to keep range of motion. Pec Stretch consists of raising bent arm to the side to make an “L”, raise arm so that upper arm is at a 45 degree angle to the neck and place forearm against rig/door frame. Slowly lean into stretch.

Bicep wall stretch consists of facing a wall and placing a palm on the wall with fingers towards the floor. Slowly turn the torso away from the hand to facilitate a stretch in the bicep and forearm. Higher placement on the wall will result in a bigger stretch.

Mayhem Mini-Pump

Mini-Pump Sessions are used as a supplement to another Mayhem Athlete track or on days when you are pressed for time and cannot complete the full day’s bodybuilding session as programmed. You should NOT complete today’s bodybuilding program AND the mini-pump session. Choose one or the other.
