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)

Arms and Core

3 Rounds

15/12 cal Row

15 Banded Bicep Curls (light band – fast reps)

15/12 cal Ski

15 Banded Tricep Extenstions (light band – fast reps)


2 Rounds

10 PVC Pass Throughs

5 PVC Around the Worlds (each direction)

10 Arm Circles (each Direction)

5 Down Dog/Seal Pose Transitions
Focus: Move with intention and take machine work at an easy/moderate pace


Ring Push-ups (5 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: Set up a pair of rings on a pullup bar and lower them until they are 2-3 inches from the floor. Assume a pushup position on the rings, with the hands/rings positioned below the shoulder and feet on the floor. Maintaining an engage core throughout, lower into a push until the chest makes contact with the top of the rings and then push up. Elevate the height of the rings to make this movement easier.

Ring Push-ups

Ring Row – Feet Elevated (5 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: Athletes will need a set of rings and some type of item (bench, box, or stacked plates) to elevate their feet. Rings should be set up so that the bottom of the rings are at the top of the athlete’s hip when standing. Foot platform should be at a height that allows athlete to be completely parallel when athletes are at the top of the rep (with rings making contact with the outside of the chest). Another measurement that typically works is using a platform that is right at knee level. Athlete should lie back hanging from rings with straight legs on their elevated platform and row until rings make contact with the outside of the chest. Core should stay engaged and legs straight. Athletes should avoid “kipping” the rep.

Double DB Skull Crushers (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: Lay on bench or floor. Both arms are extended in front with DB’s held in a neutral grip. Elbow should stay tucked (avoid flaring) and pointed towards the ceiling. Lower dumbbells by bending at the elbow and allow them to pass by the sides of the head. Show control throughout.

Double DB Skull Crushers

DB Spider 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: Set up an incline bench to a 45 degree angle. Hold light/moderate dumbbells in each hand and brace chest/upper torso against bench. Perform curls with both arms at the same time.

DB Spider Curls

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

Single Dumbbell Waiter Hold Curl (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: Using one dumbbell, grasp by one head of the dumbbell with both hands (allowing the second head to hang below the hands so dumbbell is vertical). Hand position should be so that the palms are facing more towards the sky rather than palms facing each other. Curl the dumbbell, showing control throughout.
