MAPS Aesthetic Review – Mind Pump Media

Mind Pump Media started out as a podcast. The hosts, Sal, Adam and Justin, together with the producer Doug, share their insights about fitness, health or fat loss in almost daily shows. They really tell it as it is, debunking common myths, misunderstandings in order to help you figure out what works and what doesn’t. In this article, I introduce you to MAPS Aesthetic.

The first fitness program they ever sold was MAPS Anabolic, which is now part of the MAPS RGB bundle. Years ago I bought the RGB bundle, just to see what it was all about. And to learn more about programming.

The RGB bundle consists of:

  1. MAPS Anabolic (Red)
  2. MAPS Performance (Green)
  3. MAPS Aesthetic (Black)

Why am I doing this?

The reason I did this review, is because people kept asking me about my thought about it. Does it work? How was it? Is it fun? Can you actually get stronger? Is it worth the money?

After repeating myself a few times, I decided to review not only MAPS Aesthetic but also the complete RGB bundle (Red, Green, Black) as video reviews.

Just to be clear: this review is my personal opinion. No one paid me to do it. I received no incentive writing this article or recording the video.

MAPS Aesthetic Review

In the review, I tackle all the questions mentioned above, and more. If you are intrigued, have a look and make sure to give my video a like and share your thoughts in the comments too. I will share more videos in the future and would love to see you around, so make sure to subscribe to my channel.

You will learn everything about MAPS Aesthetic in my YouTube review, but here are a few highlights of the program:

MAPS Aestheticis a phased program, which contains 3 different phases:

  • for strength,
  • hypertropy and
  • pump.

The strength and pump phases are each 3 weeks long, the hypertrophy phase lasts 4 weeks. The weekly split is the same in each phase and consists of 3 full-body training days. You will do all the compound lifts, additional isolation work and also work your calves and abs too.

On your non-full-body training days, you won’t be sedentary, you can add up to 3 so called “focus” sessions to your training schedule.

In these sessions, you will be in the gym and focus, hence the name, on up to two body parts. You will do extra volume and these sessions will give you the chance to bring up lagging body parts or just add to something you enjoy doing (hey, maybe you are a leg training person?).

These sessions are shorter and should be done in 20 to 40 minutes. But don’t overdo it, these sessions aren’t meant to be 10 exercises long, pick your favourite 3 and give it your best, add some post-training mobility work or extra abs if you want to do more.

More is not necessarily better: better is better!

I hope this gets you excited to watch my review!
