Fitness goal

Have you ever looked at the physique of the great sculptures, cut with a Hammer and Chisel from marble or shaped from clay, the hands of Italian masters evident in every inch of their sinewy form? Have you wanted to look like that?

The path to that perfect form of human structure is through a workout known as the Hammer and Chisel. It may seem a little on the nose, but it paints the proper picture as to what you are going to be doing to get to that statuesque, well-defined form.

What is Hammer and Chisel?

Hammer and Chisel is a two-part program that requires absolute dedication to get the prescribed results. Without the hammer aspect, the size will not form, and without the chisel portion, the definition will be lacking. You can still get one hell of a workout with one or the other, but to have the physique that looks like it was cut from marble, both must be done in the required amounts.

Planning ahead

Before you begin, pick your rest day. This is important, otherwise you will lose continuity in your routine and that can be a slippery slope. If you usually rest on, say, Monday, then start on Tuesday. Pick a rest day that you can really rest, not one you will use for other workouts, or flipping tires, or whatever you want to do that isn’t resting.

To get the most out of the Hammer and Chisel workout, you are going to need about 2 months of dedicated focus, and it may feel like the longest, most painful 2 months of your life, but the benefits will make you respect the struggle when you look at your lean tone and bulging muscles and like what you see in the mirror. Your beach body.

The routine in a nutshell

For the most part, the Chisel portion, like we said, is where your definition comes from. Anyone who works out knows, that for lean definition, you do high reps with low weights. It is all about resistance workouts, isometrics, and a lot of calisthenics. Essentially you turn your cardio as a more intricate part of the workout.

Your Hammer, well that is the part where your size is brought to the game. Cardiovascular health is definitely improved during your Hammer workouts. The weight is increased, so you gain more physical muscle for the Chisel portion to tone.

The schedule changes each week to shake things up and keep your muscles guessing, and this workout involves 18 different exercises, which means you, and your muscles won’t get bored and begin to stagnate. Keeping the body interested is important. Keeping yourself interested is more important.

One last thing to remember

The creators to the Hammer and Chisel workout, Autumn Calabrese and Sagi Kalev, just like any other personal trainer or coach, adamantly emphasize the importance of feeding your muscles with the proper diet. You can’t get bigger, well-defined mass eating Twinkies and McDonalds. You can get mass, but not where you want it.

Hammer and Chisel Meal Plan?

The Hammer and Chisel program has a meal plan that aligns specifically with the workouts built in. If you really want to make an honest go at it, the diet, the dedication, and adhering to the schedule, are the only ways to get the results you desire.
