We all know that being consistent and tracking your workouts is the most effective way to encourage progression and force adaptation. But changing up your training programme every now and then, and in the right way, is a great way to stimulate new muscle growth and strength increases. Continue reading 7 NEW TRICEPS EXERCISES TO BUILD NEW MUSCLE
Many people would argue the Back Squat to be the King of lower body exercises, and the best quads builder out there. However, crowning the best lower body exercise is kind of like trying to decide who should rule the Iron Throne in Game of Thrones. You might have your favourite, but there’s pros and cons to all of them. Depending on who you are, they can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. But its easy to keep your allegiances with the one you know best. And by the way going back to G.O.T I’m with Jon Snow all the way!!

Let’s start with a question; how many times have you actually felt your back working and on fire during a workout? If you’re like most people I bet not very many, if at all.
Not being able to actually see what you’re working doesn’t help, as well as the fact that we’re all using the same old back exercises. No one is experimenting with their back training to see what actually feels good. Experimenting with new exercises is something at Team Maverick we’re pretty good at! We know the science, and we love being creative! Also, we don’t like to get bored with our own workouts, or those we’re giving our clients, so this forces us to experiment! To your benefit this means you won’t ever get bored either! At Team Maverick we’ve got your back….pun intended!
These are some of the most effective back exercises you’ve never tried… Continue reading WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK | EFFECTIVE BACK EXERCISES YOU’VE NOT TRIED
I could quite easily write this article full of puns and innuendo; We’re talking about butts after all. Glutes, ass, arse, tushy, booty, the money maker… whatever you want to call it, glute training is important! Because STRONG glutes are important. Good glutes make you stronger, faster, less injury prone, and hotter! It’s just a fact: Girls like big butts and they cannot lie… you other brothers can’t deny… (ok I’ll stop with the references now)!!
Girls know all about working their asses off (literally), but for some reason guys just don’t get it. Well I’m making it my mission to get guys to fall in love with glute training. No woman wants a guy with a pancake butt, nor do you want to be that guy that only ever trains upper body (you know who you are). Yes, sometimes even just thinking of heavy squats and deadlifts can be draining, but with glute training, and this easy to follow programme below, you’ll never have this problem.

Abs are made in the gym. They’re not made in the kitchen unless your kitchen just happened to double up as a gym!
Yes, you’re only going to be able to see your abs when your body fat is low enough; below 10-12% for most men, and below about 15-17% for women. But the abdominal muscles are just like any other muscle group, they need resistance and progressive overload in order to grow. In the case of your abs however, rather than growing and making your waste thicker, they have the tendency to just become harder, tighter and more deeply etched. This is good news for those of us that want to maintain a small waist size. Continue reading ABS ARE CARVED IN THE KITCHEN BUT NOT MADE THERE!
