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)

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 (5 sets: 8 reps)

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

*Build to a moderate weight; stay the same or build across 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 (5 sets: 8 reps)

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

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

Focus: traditional deadlift setup. Keep weight to a controllable amount meaning no bouncing off the floor. All reps are touch and go – do not reset at the bottom of reps.

Elevated Heel Goblet Squat (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: Use a small plate or slant board under each heel. Hold a DB or KB in a goblet position. Focus on keeping tension in the legs throughout out sets. Stop just before full lockout at the top of each rep for added time under tension.

DB Walking Lunges (4 sets: 30 yards)

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

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

Focus: Find an area that 30 yds can be lunged unbroken. Lunges should be done for quality, not for weight. Feel free to begin with only bodyweight and increase across sets. For walking lunges, attempt to keep tension in the legs during the entire rep, meaning you shouldn’t be resting/slamming the back knee into the floor. Keep loading to something that will allow for smooth, constant lunges throughout sets. Consider using straps during this movement so that grip is not a limiting factor for sets.

GHD Nordic (Hamstring) Curl (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: Control your eccentric (going down) for as long as you can. Sit-up by curling with the hamstrings or pushing off on a box to assist. Don’t try to work above your skill/strength level here. Modify this movement by attaching a band to the GHD and wearing the other end like a backpack to assist in coming up. Place a box in front of the GHD to push off of at parallel if a.) it is too difficult to Sit-up on your own or b.) you fail a rep. Working above your skill level will most definitely increase risk for hamstring cramping

KB Belt Squats (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: Athletes will set up on an elevated surface for each foot and an opening between this surface for the weight to pass through. Set up with a dip belt and attach KB to dip chain. In the event that you do not have a dip belt, a modified belt squat can be set up with a loose-fitting weightlifting belt and a strong band looped through. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING. Take care when setting up as weight can make athlete unstable when moving. Set up with feet at squat width and allow KB to hang between legs. Squat below parallel and then stand. Stopping just before full extension of the knees and hips between reps will keep tension of the quads and make this movement more challenging.

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

Mayhem Ready

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