Hammer & Chisel review

Day 1: Chisel balance!

This workout was the most similar beachbody workout to what I create for my clients that I’ve done!!

I loved the PIYO-esque warmup! I also loved that you could use a chair (I used my foot bench or whatever they are called) if you don’t have one for these moves. Great moves, my butt and hamstrings felt goooood!! Shoulders worked too. I am sure our backs will be feeling it too in a few days!

Side note-who decides the water bottle situation. Two of them have $20 Shakeology water bottles and two of them have $5 Walmart water bottles! πŸ˜‚

Grade: 5! Loved it!

My review! Day 2: Hammer Plyometrics

I chose plyo because I know I hate It therefore I should do it. Might’ve gotten MORE out of masters cardio because I don’t have a pull-up bar or bench so a lot of moves had to be modified. Keep that in mind when you choose which one you want to do because day 2 is optional!

I was REALLY ANNOYED that he didn’t seem to know Chelseas name but he picked it up at the end there. And at the beginning I thought he was trying to scare me. πŸ˜‚

It was a touch workout but even though his intensity made me chuckle, it worked because I kicked booty! 

My favorite move? Rev lunge to knee driver

Hardest move? Plyo push-ups!!!! 

Grade: 4 Short but tough. (Would’ve been a 3 if he hadn’t said her name!)  


Alrighty roo!! Day 3: Hammer & Chisel–ISO Strength Chisel! That was fun!! Felt some of those muscle fibers tearing! πŸ˜‰ Favorite move was side step up. Hardest wasthe Bulgarian split squat. Rude. And the easiest one was the c spine crunch. I HAVE a six pack. Strong abs. They are just currently hiding. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Autumn is very motivating. From the very first time I worked out with her I thought, “She’s a talking Pinterest fitspo board. πŸ˜‚

Grade: 5 Felt the burn. 

Hammer and Chisel, Day 4 (kinda). I’m taking my rest day Sunday so I’m a rebel. ISO Soeed Hammer. This workout is less that 20 minutes of actual WORK. I’m convinced they are easing us in with this stabilization phase. I hope. 
I don’t have a chin up bar but otherwise that workout was too easy. Yeah. I said it! Especially if we were supposed to have a rest day yesterday!!! 

Grade: C 

Day 5: Hammer& Chisel Endurance done!! 

I liked it, similar to what I do on my own with balance and flexibility added into strength. Little too much spalining time though. I also like how there are options for those without a bench or pull up bar! Decline balance-y push-ups are hard. πŸ˜‚

Grade: B!

Day 7: Hammer & Chisel Total body hammer!! 

Felt a nice overall burn and a gots good sparkle going. Too much taking, could’ve gone a little faster. 

Day 8: Chisel Cardio
This was a great cardio workout. Other than running I don’t like cardio πŸ˜‚ There’s a meme out there that says-you mean lift weights faster? That’s what this was for the most part and I liked it. I also like function movements like step ups because they challenge balance in a realistic movement pattern. Woowoo. 
Burpees are always stupid but autumn has a way of making them tolerable. 
I felt like she was talking to ME when she said you don’t want to walk away not having Given it all you had. So I tried a little harder. πŸ˜‚
Favorite move was the side step/kick. Didn’t love the plank kicks but I did them. πŸ˜‚ And Alvin just doesn’t know how to row the boat!!πŸ˜‚
I still think it’s kind of easy. But that’s not terrible, you don’t have to feel like you’re gonna die to get a good workout right! πŸ˜‚
Btw read in fixate that Autumn moved to Cali to be an actress. Welllllll. I think that turns out best case scenario huh?
Grade: A
Day 12? Is that right? Lol. Anyway… Hammer Power!

For me it was okay. Not the biggest fan of Olympic power lifting but it has its place in weight training!! I liked it at the beginning but then it was kind of repetitive at the end. I do appreciate doing something new though, and Sagi wasn’t too bad!!
🎯 Loved the illustration of him get getting kicked in the butt because that is EXACTLY what it looked like. 

🎯 Liked the use of light weights to warm up the muscles. 

🎯 Love how power lifting only involves like 10 reps max. Ever. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

🎯 Favorite move is deadlift. 

πŸ‘Ž Still waiting on biceps. 

Grade: C. Not because of the workout, I think it was a good one for other people. I’m just not a fan of cleans and jerks and snatches. πŸ˜‚
Happy flex Friday!!
