Why does this program exist?

There are so many athletes who love doing CrossFit but do not quite have all of the movements nailed down. Maybe you are one of these athletes who struggles with some of the skilled movements like strict pull ups, kipping pull ups, strict hspu, kipping hspu, double unders, muscle ups, rope climbs, etc. This program is created exactly for you!

What does this program look like?

The Mayhem Scaled program is THE PREMIER program for Scaled athletes looking to take improve their current fitness. 
This program will offer tailored workouts programmed each day by Rich Froning that have been modified by the Mayhem Athlete team so any athlete can perform them.
Most days will include session for skill development (example: progression to develop strict HSPU) and some combination of metcons, strength (Olympic and Power Lifts), and/or aerobic conditioning.

Each day’s workouts include warm ups, cool downs, and workout notes that clearly explain the intended stimulus, target scores, time caps, movement explanation, scaling options and more.

Do I gain access to other programs with this program?

Yes! You will be able to view and log scores for Mayhem 60 and Mayhem 30 if you choose to use them!

Who is this program for?

This program is great for any athlete who typically performs a scaled/modified version of most workouts.
This program is also made for any athlete newer to CrossFit and wants a smooth transition into the start.

What if I have never done crossfit?

While this program is made for Scaled athletes, we recommend the completely new to CrossFit athlete join a local box and learn the basic movements before jumping into this program.Our program can take your fitness to another level, but having a coach on site for the first few months of CrossFit is a great place to start before starting Mayhem Scaled.

If I performed the Open in the Scaled division and want to be able to do Rx'd, is this for me?

Our goal with this program is for you to steadily improve and be able to perform workouts Rx'd. 
We will periodically retest workouts and even Open workouts to display your progress in fitness and skill development.

How long will it take each day?

This program will take 1-2 hours to complete each day.
We will list the program in order of importance, so if you are short on time you can be sure to perform the most important pieces first!

How many days of programming are there each week?

We provide programming EVERYDAY! We do follow the traditional schedule 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 swim, movement quality session, or yoga) and Sundays are a full rest day (with an optional, easy cardio workout).

How to know if I should switch from Mayhem scaled to mayhem 60 or a competitor program?

If you have been following Mayhem Scaled for at least 3 months, are easily doing all workouts as Rx’d, have seen consistent progress, and are ready for more of a challenge.

Or if you have competed in at least 1 Open Season Rx’d and are used to training for 1-2 hours for 4-5 days a week.
