Chisel Endurance Moves

Some notes – Autumn says this workout is about building ENDURANCE. And, that is what true! All of the moves are 60 seconds. I found myself having to back down the weights a bit so I can make it through the full 60 seconds for each move. You go through all the moves, and then repeat the full cycle again. By the end of round #2, you are definitely BEAT!

  1. Bench Run Ups (L / R) –  I used a chair for this as you can see in the video. You step up with one foot, and step down, and keep going. After 60 seconds, you switch to the other leg.
  2. Negative Pull Ups – Slow on the down. They used a wide-grip in the video. I had to use the pull up assist band for this – 60 seconds is a LONG time.
  3. Step up Cross Over (L / R) – Also in the video. One foot stays planted on the bench (in my case, a chair!). The other foot goes up & over while you are holding a weight. This gets significantly more challenging if you pretend you are lifting your back leg up and over something behind you. 
  4. Decline Push Up  – Your toes on the chair and do pushups!
  5. 1 Hand Row w. Leg Extension (L  / R)  – One hand on the bench and row with your other. Your leg also goes up in the air. chisel_endurance_1arm_row
  6. Incline Press – Set the bench at a 45 degree angle (or use the ball as I did). 60 seconds of press. Your chest will be sore after this one.
  7. Plank Knee Taps –  It’s called plank but it’s actually the Sphinx position – on your forearms. Then, you lower and tap each kneerepeatedly for 60 seconds. I’m pretty good at planks overall, but the lowered position makes it harder and I was burning after 60 seconds!chisel endurance plank knee taps

Chisel Endurance Review & Thoughts:  

I loved this workout! The 60 second duration for each move really pushed me. I hadn’t read the workout guide and was not quite expecting the second round of the same moves, ha!

I’m not doing my first “official” weigh in until Sunday night but I did take some photos today and compared them side by side and I can already see a significant change in just five days. Really excited to see where this program takes me over the next 2 months!

Hammer and Chisel Meals: 

What I ate today!

  • Breakfast -Chocolate Shakeology w/ chilled coffee, 1/2 a banana, 2 Tsp peanut butter
  • Snack – 2 slices of low sodium ham rolled up
  • Lunch – Small salad with turkey, hummus & balsamic
  • Snack – Apple
  • Dinner – Cauliflower crust pizza – need to do a blog post for this soon, it was good! The kids loved it also & super healthy!
  • Evening Snack – Chicken stuffed pepper (leftover)

Day #7 Tomorrow and the last day of week #1! Can’t wait to do my official measurements & weigh-in! I have a feeling this program is going to produce a lot of Non Scale Victories with muscle definition. I’m really enjoying all the weights and the variety each workout has. It keeps it interesting and FUN!
