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: 2 reps)

* Warm up and keep the same weight across all 5 sets. The sets should be at 9.5/10 RPE.

Deadlift (5 sets: 2 reps)

* Warm up and keep the same weight across all 5 sets. The sets should be at 9.5/10 RPE.

Barbell Front Squat: 1 and a Half Reps (4 sets: 8 reps )

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

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

Focus: Rack a barbell in the front rack 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. Perform 1 and a half reps by squatting below parallel, raise to above parallel, return below parallel, and then stand. Do not bounce out of the bottom of any reps.

Barbell Romanian Deadlift (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: Deadlift bar to hip to start. Push the hips back, lowering the barbell down the front of the legs until the end ROM is hit (or the low back begins to round out). Straps are allowed to be used so that grip is not a limiting factor for sets. Perform this movement on a plate if additional ROM is needed so plates do not contact floor between reps.

Band Pull Through (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

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

Focus: Attach a moderate/heavy weight band to a rig at knee height. Turn away from the rig and grasp the band with each hand with a thumb forward grip between the legs. Step forward and lean forward slightly when the band is under tension. Hinge by pushing the hips back and then forcefully contract the glutes to drive the hips forward to full extension. ALWAYS INSPECT BANDS FOR SIGNS OF POTENTIAL BREAKAGE BEFORE USING.

Standing Barbell Calf Raise (4 sets: 15-20 reps)

*Rest 1:00-1:30 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 rig to guide bar through movement so you don’t lose your balance. *Make sure that platform you are standing on will not flip when standing on edge

Mayhem Ready

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