New Program! The Master’s Hammer & Chisel

WHAT IS THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL™?

For the very first time, trainers Sagi Kalev and Autumn Calabrese have teamed up to create an expert program designed to help you craft a powerful, perfectly defined body. The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is an innovative resistance training system that incorporates three muscle-sculpting phases—Stabilization, Strength, and Power—or SSP Training. This is how Sagi and Autumn help you efficiently build, chisel, and refine a masterpiece physique in just 60 days.

WHAT MAKES THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL INCREDIBLY EFFECTIVE & UNIQUE?

  • The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is built on the three phases of SSP Training— Stabilization, Strength, and Power. Other workouts only focus on one or two phases, which might give you decent results. But The Master’s Hammer and Chisel program incorporates all three methods to help you relentlessly chip away fat and carve every muscle for a strong, visually stunning body in 60 days.
  • 12 brand-new, 30- to 40-minute workouts that combine Sagi and Autumn’s proven techniques for 60 days of hardcore resistance training.
  • Sagi and Autumn make eating for your goals simple. That’s why they included their easy-to-follow and completely customizable nutrition plan, along with 7 portion-control containers that show you how to portion out the right amount of food to help you reach your unique fitness goals.
  • Flexible nutrition that allows you to lean out, sculpt and maintain, or build muscle.
  • Includes options to adapt certain exercises if you have limited access to equipment.
  • Includes a modifier who demonstrates some moves at a lower intensity.

Performance Pack

Q. HOW DOES THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL DIFFER FROM BODY BEAST®?

Body Beast is a bodybuilding program that focuses on muscular hypertrophy. The Master’s Hammer and Chisel includes aspects of bodybuilding, but also focuses on improving endurance, power, agility, strength, balance, and range of motion to sculpt a tight, defined physique.

Q. HOW DOES THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL DIFFER FROM 21 DAY FIX EXTREME®?

21 Day Fix EXTREME is a shorter, goal-specific program, whereas The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is a full 60-day program with slightly longer workouts. 21 Day Fix EXTREME focuses on getting you shredded, while The Master’s Hammer and Chisel also helps you improve other aspects of your fitness, such as muscular endurance, power, strength, and agility. It’s a whole new approach to getting you ripped.

Q. WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED FOR THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL?

  • A few dumbbells of various weights appropriate to your strength and fitness level.
  • A bench or stability ball.
  • A chin-up bar or a resistance band and a door attachment.

Meal PlanningQ. HOW DOES THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL NUTRITION PLAN COMPARE TO BODY BEAST, 21 DAY FIX®, AND 21 DAY FIX EXTREME?

Like the nutrition plans in 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME, The Master’s Hammer and Chisel uses the portion control container system. However, it is tailored to meet your specific goals and the nutritional demands that a challenging body-sculpting program like The Master’s Hammer and Chisel requires.

Q. CAN YOU CUSTOMIZE THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL NUTRITION PLAN TO MEET YOUR UNIQUE GOALS?

Yes! If you want to gear your nutrition toward building more muscle (a surplus), or toward shredding fat (a deficit), you can use the Nutrition Plan Quiz to recalculate your calories to help you reach your goals.

Q. HOW DO THE CALORIE CHARTS FOR THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL WORK?

The Nutrition Plan Quiz included in the program and nutrition guide will determine your appropriate calorie chart based on your goals. Like the calorie breakdowns in 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME, the ones in The Master’s Hammer and Chisel Program and Nutrition Guide also include the number of color-coded, portion-control containers your bracket requires each day to meet your goals.

Q. HOW DOES THE 60-DAY CALENDAR WORK?

The Master’s Hammer and Chisel program is a 60-day rotation of hardcore strength training built on the three phases of SSP Training—Stabilization, Strength, and Power. Sagi and Autumn strategically structured these workouts to train in all three phases efficiently, so following the calendar is important.

Beachbody PerformanceQ. HOW DOES THE BEACHBODY PERFORMANCE™ LINE FIT IN TO THE PROGRAM?

Because these workouts are so demanding, I highly recommend you consider adding Beachbody Performance supplements to your regimen to help support your energy, muscle-building, and recovery.* Instructions for incorporating Beachbody Performance into your nutrition regimen are included in The Master’s Hammer and Chisel Program and Nutrition Guide.

Q. IS THERE A TEAM BEACHBODY EXCLUSIVE IF YOU ORDER THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL THROUGH ME?

Yes! Customers who purchase The Master’s Hammer and Chisel through me will get a FREE bonus workout—The Master’s Cardio (a $19.95 value)! When Sagi and Autumn want tough, fat-chiseling cardio, The Master’s Cardio DVD includes their go-to moves. Short, but intense, this workout boosts aerobic capacity, power, and muscular endurance—without impacting your lean-muscle gains.

PiYo- Week 1

piyo

This past Monday I officially started my Piyo Journey! I am excited to share with you my weekly progress with PiYo! To be totally honest with you, I was hesitant to commit to this program, not because I didn’t believe in the program, but because I love lifting weights. I started to get more excited after seeing other coaches results. I have decided to give 100% commitment and do Piyo from start to finish, and then enter my results for a chance to be on the PiYo infomercial!!!

My goal with Piyo is not to lose weight a bunch of weight. I am doing this to tone up all while increasing my strength, flexibility and core.

Here is what week one looked like:

Day 1 is the fundamentals which is 40 minutes long. This workout breaks down the most important and effective moves in the program to help you perfect your form and get the best results possible. If you have never done PiYo please do NOT skip this introduction.

Day 2 is Define: Lower Body (20 minutes) which really focuses on your lower body.

Day 3 is Define: Upper Body (18 minutes). At first, I thought this was a core workout, but then came the tricep pushups and those just keep on coming.

Day 4 is Sweat (35 minutes) which is fast paced cardio yoga flow and body weight resistance strength training to help sculpt your entire body.

Day 5 is REST

Day 6 you repeat Define: Lower Body

Day 7 you repeat Define: Upper Body

And just like that week 1 is done!

As for the nutrition portion I calculated my calorie baseline for what I needed for the day with the nutrition book that came with the program. Talk about an easy plan to follow. There are SO many choices and ways to switch it up daily. If you are anything like me you can’t eat the same thing every single day!

So for my target range I am eating:

4 servings of Primary Veggies
2 servings of secondary veggies and grains
2 servings of fresh fruit
4 servings of lean protein
3 servings of healthy fats

I can’t stress enough how important it is to not eat fewer calories than recommended. Not only is that unhealthy but it will be detrimental to your results…and you don’t to do all the hard work for nothing!

So I encourage you to follow me on my Piyo Journey on Facebook and right here on my blog! I also am accepting applications for a Piyo Test Group!
GET RESULTS and WIN MONEY in the PROCESS!!

Baked Spaghetti Squash with Garlic & Butter

Baked Spaghetti Squash

Baked Spaghetti Squash with Garlic and Butter

Ingredients

1 small spaghetti squash (about 3-4 pounds)
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup finely minced parsley (or basil)
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Instructions

Preheat oven to 375F. Pierce squash a couple of times with sharp paring knife (this will allow the steam to escape).

Bake spaghetti squash for 60 minutes, or until a paring knife pierces easily through skin with little resistance. Let squash cool for approx. 10 minutes.

Cut the squash in half, lengthwise. Use a fork to remove and discard the seeds. Continue using fork to scrape the squash to get long, strands. If the squash seems difficult to scrape, return the squash to bake for an additional 10 minutes or so.

Heat a large saute pan with the butter and the garlic over medium-low heat. When garlic becomes fragrant, add your parsley, salt and spaghetti squash strands. Toss well, sprinkle the parmesan cheese
The spaghetti squash should have a slight crunch (i.e. not mushy) – but if you like it softer, cover the pan and cook for about 2 more minutes.
