If you have ever wondered what Rich would do if he could go back in time and program for his younger self as he began competing, this is it. This is programming from Rich for those beginning to take competition seriously or that want to take their fitness to the next level.
The Mayhem Compete program is on of the most complete programs we offer for the serious fitness competitor. This program offers volume in all aspects of strength, conditioning, and gymnastics at a volume and intensity to take you to your peak levels of fitness. This program will ensure you are ready to compete to your full potential during the Open and/or other competitions during the CrossFit Games Season. Mayhem Compete is very challenging and will push you to your limits, but will take those who trust the process further than they thought they could ever go.
Each day’s workouts include daily video overviews, warm ups, cool downs, and workout notes that clearly explain the intended stimulus, target scores, time caps, movement explanation, scaling options and more.
We suggest this program for only athletes that have competed in multiple Open seasons. It is very well suited for those looking to make the QuarterFinals, qualify for SemiFinals and/or the Games, or just love suffering a lot on a daily basis. It will also help prepare you for local and online competitions.
This program will usually take around 2-3 hours to complete each day and may need to be broken up into 2 sessions.
We provide programming EVERYDAY! We do follow the traditional schedule of 5 days on and 2 days “off.” Workouts are included Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Thursdays are an active recovery day (often having the option of a Bike Erg) and Sundays are a full rest day (with an optional, easy cardio workout, often a swim).
Many of the workouts in Compete are from workouts Rich has done recently. Rich will use what he learned while doing the workouts, improve upon them, and integrate them into Compete. The overall volume is slightly less than the program “What’s Rich Doing” - which is exactly what Rich does. Compete also has skilled gymnastics but not quite to the volume or degree in “What’s Rich Doing” (for example: less pegboards and Handstand Walk Obstacles).
Compete is best for those looking to make a Sanctional or who aren’t accustomed to the higher volume of movements. “What’s Rich Doing” is better for those closer to making the Games or who just love the idea of doing exactly what Rich does for training.
