I am part of the way through Week 1 of The Master’s Hammer & Chisel. So far I really am enjoying it and getting pretty sore! I was familiar with Autumn Calabrese because I have done the 21 Day Fix, but this was my first experience with seeing Sagi Kalev as a trainer. They have different approaches, but still are tough and focused on safety, which is very important.
The program (so far) alternates days between Autumn and Sagi training. It can be kind of annoying changing out the DVD everyday (yes, I can be lazy sometimes), but the variation is nice and it keeps you from getting bored. The workouts are hard, but you can modify by using lighter or no weights so there are no excuses! It even comes with Autumn’s portion control color coded containers and a Shakeology shaker cup.
You do need some equipment for these workouts, including a yoga mat, various dumbbells, a bench (or a ball…I don’t have a bench), and a pull up bar or resistance bands. I have a pull up bar, but I am still working up to using it!
