No “buts” about it…
Hammer and Chisel is absolutely a program that WORKS!
This past Thursday, Mike and I completed 8 weeks of the newest Beachbody program, Hammer and Chisel. To be honest, we’ve totally found our soulmate workout!
And let’s just say, Mike and I are pretty happy about our results too.
Chislin’ is for sure!
Check it out!
A little bit of background:
Hammer and Chisel is a 60 Day Program based on the following:
stabilization, strength and power.
You will practice progression of weight training in all three above areas before you progress in the amount of weights you use. This practice allows you to build a foundation before you move forward.
This program is designed for those with a baseline of fitness
There is a modifier for the program, and whether you are looking to lose weight, tone up, or bulk up, Hammer and Chisel is designed with you in mind.
Mike and I set out to lose weight, tone up and ultimately create some healthy habits that we had fallen out of. When I started the program I was excited but I was nervous about all of the temptation with the holiday, the difficulty of the weight training, and the time it would take to plan.
So to get you started, I wanted to share some of my top tips.
1. Have the right equipment.
You will need weights and an extremely sturdy bench. I also highly suggest using a door adjustment and push up bar. If you do not want to invest in your own equipment, take Hammer and Chisel to the gym. You can stream your Hammer and Chisel workouts with Beachbody on Demand!
I also HIGHLY suggest working with an accountability partner. Luckily for me, my accountability partner is my husband, so we were pushing one another. If you don’t have that, reach out, I can get you set up!
2. Schedule Your Workouts
Just like you schedule a doctor’s appointment for your health, schedule your workouts. Look at your calendar for the week and determine the best possible time to workout when nothing in life will interfere. For me, my workouts take place at 5 am before my kids and husband wake up. I love too starting off my day burning off calories and setting myself up for success, but everyone is different.
I quickly learned that my best workouts personally happened first thing in the morning with limited distraction! I get up, drink my energize and get my workout going
Mike on the other hand needs to be a little bit more awake! He’d schedule his workouts during his lunch break!
3. Prep it ahead!
Identify the meal plan that’s perfect for you. Using an inventory of questions, based on your current weight, your goals, and your lifestyle, you will identify how many containers to consume, daily! Then spend one afternoon each week prepping your meals and veggies. Mike and I would portion them out so that they were easy to grab and go! We also made sure to shop simply for the essentials. We didn’t keep a lot of snacks in our house, and the snacks we did keep were things our kids liked but didn’t really tempt us.
|Eating for Hammer and Chisel!
Here’s the truth. Hammer and Chisel is going to push you. There are mornings that I don’t want to get up. There are mornings that I would much rather sleep in than sweat. But anything worth doing well is worthy of sacrifices.
