Chiseled In 30 Workout Program Review

Etched in 30 (CI30) is a home exercise program that originates from the organization Calisthenics Kingz and structured by HIT Richards (more on HIT later) It’s a two DVD set. Every DVD is a period of the exercise. Subsequently, Phase I and Phase II.

Each Phase is to be done day by day, five continuous days seven days then a multi day rest for three back to back weeks. In this way, you would do Phase I for three weeks, five back to back days then a multi day rest. Subsequent to finishing the three weeks, at that point proceed onward to Phase II for five continuous days with two days rest for three weeks. Get it? The “30” in the “Etched in 30” is the quantity of genuine exercises you’ll be doing.

In the event that you track with the program, every exercise should take around 45-50 minutes complete. What’s more, trust me, you WILL feel like you worked out when you’re done.

Goodness, and for those that are further developed than me, you can get the program as a download also. I don’t know of the arrangement it comes in for the download, yet in the event that you go that course, I’m certain it’s sketched out at the Calisthenics Kingz site.

The program likewise accompanies a sustenance plan. Similarly as with the two Phases of exercises, there are two Phases of the sustenance plan that relates with the exercise Phases. Along these lines, amid Phase I, you ought to pursue a specific nourishment plan and do likewise for Phase II. It’s everything spread out for you in a simple to pursue design.

Who Is Calisthenics Kingz and HIT Richards

The organization that set up together CI30 is Calisthenics Kingz and their originator is HIT Richards. (HIT is an abbreviation for Hard Intense Trainer, which was given to HIT by his customers). I had the benefit of Interviewing HIT as a major aspect of my Fitness Interview Series (If you’re a Fitness Insider you may have heard it). I won’t dive into subtleties on the foundation of HIT or Calisthenics Kingz, however what I can let you know is HIT has LOADS of involvement, and LOADS of certifications. What I can let you know is HIT knows his stuff all around. Don’t hesitate to inquire about him and the organization, I did and I was satisfied.

Gear Needed

The gear you will requirement for CI30 is very basic, a bounce street and a seat (or steps or something you can use for seat plunges). On the off chance that you do this exercise in your home, ensure the highest point of the bounce rope does not hit the roof and you’ll be a great idea to go. I did the whole program in my two vehicle carport, with one vehicle still in the carport! Yes, it doesn’t require a ton of room. Indeed, HIT, the maker of the program, does the program in a modest room.

Obviously, since this is a DVD sort of exercise, you will require some gadget in which to play the genuine DVD.

Since this is a recurrent exercise, I recommend tracking with the DVD the initial couple of times so you can get the everyday practice and the activities down. I would even go the extent that recording the moves and the arrangement so you can take this exercise “out and about” in a manner of speaking.

In the event that you pick, after you know the grouping of the moves and the rest times between them, don’t hesitate to utilize your very own music and do the program without tracking with the DVD.

In the event that you feel genuine eager, you can take this exercise to any neighborhood park and complete it also. Main concern, this is an exercise program that can be finished pretty much anyplace.


I need to make one thing consummately clear, despite the fact that this exercise is intended for anybody; youthful or old, thin or not all that thin, male or female; CI30 isn’t for the easygoing individual who practices for entertainment. Whenever done effectively, this exercise will beat you senseless period! CI30 is a full body exercise. You will do push ups, a great deal of pushups with various varieties. You will work your legs, you will work your abs, you will get cardio… also, one additionally thing, YOU WILL SWEAT!

In case you’re an exercise center rodent (I used to be one so I can say it), this exercise will be similarly as serious, if not progressively exceptional, than any exercise you’ve at any point done.

In case you’re not kidding about getting fit as a fiddle, this exercise will work, on the off chance that you tail it.

The “Etched In 30” Workout Program in Detail

Alright, presently how about we get into the exercise itself.


My first response was to state “doing likewise exercise for 5 days in succession, utilizing similar muscles 5 days consecutively, conflicts with all that I’ve at any point caught wind of resting muscle bunches for a couple of days between exercises.”

I’ve been working out for a LONG time, both at home and in a rec center, and I’ve generally lived by the “muscles need to rest” hypothesis. However at this point I’m changing my tune. In the event that I didn’t by and by converse with HIT, and did not do my examination, I may have simply crap poo’d this entire exercise off. Yet, knowing his certifications, I knew there was a technique to his frenzy, in a manner of speaking. HIT would not simply toss a program together for purpose of completing a program. One can’t get to his dimension of wellness or his insight into wellness without getting his work done. What’s more, I can let you know, HIT has gotten his work done. All things considered, have you seen him? The Dude is tore bizarre!

Along these lines, I chose to not scrutinize his hypothesis, but rather grasp it. All things considered, I run a wellness site and I needed to be consistent with the program I would audit, not my very own convictions that might run with the rationality of the genuine program. I figured I would utilize the Machiavelli guideline, “normal rules don’t apply in this situation.”


I sort of officially canvassed this in my notice area above. Be that as it may, I will let you know, on the off chance that you remain consistent with this program, the power level is through the rooftop! In what capacity can a program that does NOT utilize loads be so extreme? (particularly to somebody who has lifted loads at a rec center for a LONG time). It essentially boils down to individual duties. On the off chance that you hold a situation for suppose 5 seconds rather than the prescribed 20 seconds, you may not feel the power. In the event that you bounce rope for 20 seconds rather than the suggested 60 seconds, you may not get the cardio required for the program. Everything I can let you know is the force of this exercise is there, in the event that you discover it is completely up to you.

Arrangement Of Moves

To make sure you know, I won’t experience each activity of the program. In the event that you need to know, get the program. I will, be that as it may, talk about how the activities are set up inside the program.

Stage I and Phase II have diverse structures the extent that the arrangement of the activities are concerned. For example, Phase I has an abdominal muscle practice tossed in after two activities and afterward again after two additional activities. Stage II has an abdominal muscle practice as the primary move of the Phase, at that point that is it. Interesting you may ask, yes. However, viability is spot on key. Moreover, in the event that you didn’t definitely know this, push ups require a ton of abdominal muscle fill in too, so your abs are being worked all through the program.

Additionally, I won’t state each activity is progressively harder than the past, yet I will say the last exercise in each Phase (except for the calf raises) will abandon you breathing more diligently than the others. Exit Push Ups and Burpees… OUCH is all I need to state!

Quality and Cardio

Remember this, a great exercise program will consolidate quality and cardio. An extraordinary exercise program will use the best piece of each. CI30 does only that, takes the best of solidarity preparing and the best of cardio preparing.

If not for the hop rope and the coordinated rest time frames between sets, CI30 would be absolutely a quality exercise. I’m certain HIT planned it along these lines deliberately, so it very well may be named a High Intensity Interval Training exercise that joins both quality AND cardio, all inside a 45-50 minute time table.

Nourishment Plan

I will concede, following a nourishment plan of any sort has been troublesome for me for a ton of reasons I won’t get into right now. I did, be that as it may, read through the arrangement and I can say it’s an incredible arrangement! Simple to pursue and is spot on track. When you couple that with the real exercise, you must choose the option to change your body. I will say, the sustenance part of the program, despite the fact that not as impressive, is similarly as critical, if not progressively vital, than the real exercise some portion of the program.


Alright, this is the place I think HIT somewhat missed it. As of the season of this audit, Phase II was somewhat confounding the initial couple of times I experienced the exercise. I state this since I was accustomed to hearing HIT depicting the activity before doing it in Phase I. Stage II wasn’t exactly similar to that. He did the move or exercise, at that point disclosed to you what he did as such you would know for the following set. In this way, rather than moving alongside him, the first occasion when you may need to perceive what he does as such you know the move. This was somewhat odd to me since it wasn’t that route in Phase I. After the second or third time doing Phase II, it wasn’t an issue however in light of the fact that you comprehend what to do.

A portion of the moves do take some coordination and I wish there was more guidance on the most proficient method to do them. Be that as it may, as I said above, subsequent to seeing HIT do it, and attempting it myself, after the second or third time, it wasn’t an issue. I credit it to, as like pretty much anything, there is somewhat of an expectation to learn and adapt you may need to experience, yet it’s well justified, despite all the trouble.

Ambient sounds

Similarly as with pretty much any exercise program, ambient melodies is a major key in it. Also, obviously, CI30 is the same. The music all through the program is blend of in your face and decent unwinding. It’s difficult to portray, however as I would like to think, it fits what HIT is endeavoring to do with the exercise program. It was all instrumental, in a manner of speaking. I mean no vocals, simply ambient sounds. Do I like the music? There is one melody specifically that I enjoyed, that is the one with the violin’s playing. It was more similar to a hip jump type as opposed to an ensemble sort of violin. Whatever remains of the music, well… allows simply state it needed to develop on me.

Presently, the magnificence of this program is since you needn’t bother with hardware to do it you can do it anyplace and, subsequently, you can utilize your very own music as long as you probably are aware the arrangement of the moves AND the rest time between them.
