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: 2 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 9.5/10 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

Single Arm Lat Pulldown (4 sets: 10 reps per side)

*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, attach a single handle. Grasp with one hand and pull down to shoulder height. Keep the torso balanced during the pull, meaning that you shouldn’t lean away or towards the handle as the movement is performed. Position of the hand will be more neutral rather than a prorated grip like a traditional lat pulludown. Knees are locked under the leg pad and arm is extended overhead. Focus on a strong contraction of the back/pulling back with the elbow not the hands. If you do not have access to a lat pulldown machine, attach a single band to a pullup bar and perform this movement. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING.

Seated Single Arm Cable Row (4 sets: 10 reps per side)

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

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

Focus: On a seated cable machine, position body so that legs are extended but not locked out. Attach a single hand and keep torso balanced during the pull. Strong contraction of the back/pulling back with the elbow not the hands. Handle should come to the lower torso. A slight lean back is acceptable with the row portion of this movement. When returning the arm to extension, allow the back/lat to go into a slight stretch rather than just stopping at full arm extension. If you do not have access to a seated row, attach a single band to a rig. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING.

Barbell 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

Focus: Lie on a bench with barbell extended towards the ceiling. Movement works best with

an EZ curl bar but a straight will work as well. Keeping the elbow tucked,

bring the bar down towards the top of head (around the hairline region). Elbows

should stay pointed towards the ceiling. Adjust grip as needed to find the best

balance between comfort and power. Do not sacrifice form for weight and focus

on a solid contraction with each rep.

Seated Tricep DB French Press (4 sets: 12 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.
