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.

Strength

Diamond Push-ups (5 sets: 10 reps)

Chin-ups (5 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: Chin-ups should be done with a supinated (underhand grip). Rep is completed when chin passes the plane of the bar. Athletes should use a band across the rig if assistance is needed for quality reps.

Ring Push-ups (4 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 Dips (4 sets: 10 reps)

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

Focus: Dips will be performed on rings set at a height that you can keep your feet off the ground. Keep shoulders in an engaged position throughout the dips and the rest of the body in a strong “hollow position” if not using assistance. A band can be attached across the rings or one foot can be placed on the floor to assist.

Seated Alternating DB Hammer Curl (4 sets: 10 reps per side)

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

*Build to a light/moderate weight. Stay the same and focus on strict control throughout

Focus: Stay with a weight that will allow for control and minimal kipping of reps. Sit on the edge of a bench or surface that will allow for the hands to be lowered to the sides of the body rather than being stopped by the surface that athlete is sitting on (ex. if the athlete sat in the middle of the bench). Keep dumbbells slightly in front of the body at the bottom position to keep tension on the biceps throughout set. When curling, turn the arm thinking about getting the pinky finger close to the shoulder to maximize contraction with each 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.

Standing Alternating DB Curl + Single DB Double Head Curl (4 sets: 10 reps per side)

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

Focus: grasp a moderate weight dumbbell in each hand. Keep dumbbells slightly in front of the body at the bottom position to keep tension on the biceps throughout set. When curling, turn the arm thinking about getting the pinky finger close to the shoulder to maximize contraction with each rep. When finished with alternating reps, immediately grasp ONE dumbbell of a slightly heavier weight by each head and perform the remaining curls with both arms working at the same time.
