Hammer and Chisel Journey - Day 12: Hammer Power

Day 12: Hammer Power

Hammer Power is very unique workout for a Beachbody program. This is the first power-lifting workout I have seen from Beachbody. Sagi takes you through a number of power moves that bring a new approach to the program.

This workout is about 30 minutes long and focuses on teaching you how to do a proper Clean/Squat/Lift or Jerk move. It starts with basic moves and builds upon each move until the end. Most of the moves are 10 reps with a light weight and then 5 reps with medium to heavy weight. You will need dumbbells for this workout. The workout really focuses on your legs and shoulders, and lower back. You will do thousands of cleans by the time that you reach the end.... lol.

The moves include:

* Overhead presses
* Squats
* Thrusters
* Jerk Presses
* Deadlifts
* Shrugs
* Upright rows
* Cleans
* Clean & Presses
* Clean & Squats
* Clean/squat/presses
* Clean/squat/jerks
* 1 arm squat press
* 1 arm squat jerks

This is a bunch of moves, but they move pretty quickly. It will really get your heart pumping as you are using your legs and doing full body moves.

Please see my related blog Hammer and Chisel - Day 28 to see video clips of these moves.  Sorry... I was much more prepared and technologically savvy by day 28 to film short video clips!
