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 (5 sets: 3 reps)

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

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.
* Warm up and keep the same weight across all 5 sets. The sets should be at 9/10 RPE.

Double DB Prone Row (4 sets: 10 reps)

4 sets: 10 reps

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

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

Lat Pulldowns – Neutral Close Grip (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 a neutral 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 bands to a pullup bar and perform this movement. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING.

Ring Y Raise (4 sets: 10 reps )

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

Focus: Setup up a pair of rings around waist height. Grab a ring in each hand and, keeping the arms straight, lean back away from the rings with arms in front of the body. Pull the rings back/overhead with straight arms into a Y position until locked out overhead. Position of the feet should be far enough from the rings that tension can still be felt in the shoulders throughout the movement but close enough that movement is able to be controlled at all times.

Inverted Skull Crusher (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: Racking a bar on a rig around waist height, assume a plank position on the bar with hands roughly shoulder width apart. Bend the elbows and lower the body to the bar. Range of motion should result with forehead ending close to barbell (similar to a lying barbell skull crusher). Raise height of bar to decrease difficulty.

Standing KB Crush Grip French Press (4 sets: 12 reps)

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

Focus: In a standing position, take a KB and grasp it between both hands around the bell portion (not the handles). Palms will be facing each other on either side of the bell. Lift the KB overhead, being mindful of the positioning of the handles so they don’t hit the head. Keeping the elbows tucked and pointed at the ceiling, lower the weight behind the head. Extend back overhead to complete. Be sure to keep core engaged and avoid overextension in the low back.

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

1 min Foam Roll Lats
