The entire fitness industry is full of blanket statements about what we should or shouldn’t do. Information is generally black or white; do this or don’t do that, rather than being grey. Grey meaning words like “might”, “could” or “maybe”, or “this might work for you but something else might work better”. That’s because we want quick and simple answers. A general blueprint that’ll help us make the most of our time spent in the gym, or knowing what we’re eating is the right thing.
These blanket statements are engrained within fitness society, just as a thousand peoples sweat is engrained in to that workout mat you use at the gym. Much of the information is even taught in Personal Trainer schools nowadays. It’s no wonder why we take most of it for gospel truth, when so-called experts are spreading the word too.

One thing often overlooked in training is your overall weekly gym training structure; Your training ‘split’. Chances are right now you’re following one of a very limited number of ways you could structure your week, and chances are you’ve been doing the same old training split for some time now. Continue reading What’s The Best Way To Structure My Training Week?

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.
