The Masters of Hammer and Chisel

About Me

I have been struggling to get back in shape for the past few years and I have finally found a program that will get me there! I was a little unsure about it at first since it involves a lot of weight training but I love it and the results I've gotten in just 2 weeks! I started 2 weeks ago at 147 and now I'm 139.2 and I have lost 2 inches off my waist. The first week I wasn't even following the meal plan and lost 2 pounds. I was so excited by that that I strictly followed the meal plan this past week and lost another 5. I never post before pictures because I'm terrified I will give up and won't get results so I'm excited I have a great progress photo after just 2 weeks!

The Program

The Masters of Hammer and Chisel was created by 2 of beachbodys top trainers, Autumn Calabrese and Sagi Kalev. Autumn created the 21 day fix and the portion containers that have helped so many people get their nutrition on track. Sagi created Body Beast which is a great weight training program. This program can really be for anyone whether you want to lose weight or gain muscle or even both.
With this program you get 12 workouts (Click on workout name to get more detailed description):

Short, but intense, this workout boosts aerobic capacity, power, and muscular endurance—without impacting your lean-muscle gains. Autumn and Sagi show you their go to cardio exercises.

If you really want to go all out you can upgrade your program and also get the four advanced deluxe workouts:

15 MIN LEG HAMMER (19 minutes)
15 minutes is all you need to fire up your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves for maximum strength and power.

15 MIN GLUTE CHISEL (18 minutes)
Quickly sculpt a round, firm backside with intense strength and power exercises, for a lower body that makes jaws drop.

The Equipment

  • Dumbbells- Honestly I only own a pair of 5, 8, and 10s right now and they have been enough. In a few weeks I may need to get a little heavier as I get stronger
  • Bench or Stability Ball- If you can't afford a sturdy bench I recommend you just get the ball and a sturdy step stool. I good majority of the moves you need the bench for you are stepping on the bench so I feel like a stool would be a safer option than a cheaper wobbly bench. 
  • Chin-up Bar or Resistance Band w/ Door Attachment
Final Thoughts

This workout will give you results. Even if it's not on the scale you will see it in the way clothes fit you and in the mirror. A lot of people in the challenge group I'm participating in have posted similar results as I got after just 1 or 2 weeks! I will be posting more detailed reviews of the workouts throughout the week.
