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

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

*Attempt to add a small amount of weight (2.5 – 5lbs) from last week’s loading the rig to keep consistency on resistance assistance across workouts.

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

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.

*Pyramid sets. Athletes have 7 sets of building and reducing weight across sets. Weight/band assistance 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 8 rep sets. Slightly heavier weight is used for 6 reps sets (same weight for both). Slightly heavier weight is used for 4 reps sets (same weight for both). Heaviest weight is used for 2 rep set. If you are unable to do weighted pullups, utilize a band and decrease assistance as reps go down and increase assistance as reps go back up.

Body Row on Racked Barbell (4 sets: 15 reps)

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

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

Focus: Set up a bar at waist height. It is advised to secure the bar to the rig with bands on either side so that bar will not unrack during sets. Approach bar from inside of rig. Extend legs out and grab bar from underneath, assuming a solid plank position. Pull towards the bar, making contact just below the sternum. Adjust feet as needed for correct position. Difficulty should allow for solid reps without “kipping” reps. Raise height of the bar to decrease difficulty. Feet can be placed on a bench or stacked plates to increase difficulty.

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.

Supported Single Arm DB Row (4 sets: 12 reps per side)

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

Focus: Using the freehand to support the body against a bench or other elevated surface, stagger the feet, and lean forward to 45 to 80 degree angle of the torso. Athlete will pull with elbow. Focus on pulling DB to the hip/waist rather than pulling high towards upper abdomen

Seated Tricep DB French Press (4 sets: 10 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

Cooldown/Mobility

1 min Standing QL Doorway/Rig Stretch (each side)

1 min Foam Roll Lats

1 min Thread the Needle (each side)

1 min Tricep Lacrosse Ball Smash (each side)
