I enjoy all of your workouts. I am down to 168, but still have a belly apron of fat (I have 3 kids), will this workout help burn this stubborn belly fat so that I can get a flat stomach? I have been working out with your videos everyday of the week for the last couple of weeks!

yes (any workout will) but what about your calorie intake

August 06, 2016


I am doing intermittent fasting...I eat within a 4 hour window, once a day. My caloric intake is approximately 1200 per day. My belly apron has lifted and is shrinking, but I want it gone. I am not consuming sugar, sodas, white rice, bread. I follow the list you have posted on your site of foods to eat. Any suggestions?

I just reviewed what you suggested and I will review it again. I am constantly on your site. I love the 4 minute sledgehammer workout, which I did today 3 times. I will be checking back in. You are a great coach and inspiration to me and millions of other people. Keep up the great work Adrian.

Hey I tried this for the first time a few days ago and felt it all over. I just did it again today and notice that my right side (dominant side) is more sore than my left even tho I've made sure my form is the same when I do each side. Is this normal?

And when I'm rendering to my love handle area

Sorry, I was referring to my right side of my love handle area being more sore than the left***

did it feel weird when doing it with your non-dominant arm? was you using the same intensity with that arm?

May 04, 2014


I didn't notice any difference other than my right side getting tired quicker and I kept checking my form and it seemed good and the same as my dominant side. Everywhere else (midsection, arms, shoulders, back, calves) was equally sore.

just double check to be sure that you are equally using your hips and love handles/obliques to help you power thru and twist as you swing the sledgehammer

Will this workout help me to build muscle, like alot of it? I want to be a bit on a bulky side along with being ripped, will this help me to do that? If not, how can I be a bit bulky + ripped? What more workout I have to add along with sledgehammer to build muscle.

Looking for reply,
Thanks alot.

no, not a lot of muscle but enough to get ripped. get mass here

November 24, 2013


But this workout will help me build lean muscle all over my body right?

What if i pair it along with your One excercise to build muscle all over and couple of sets of push-ups and dibs?

"This" is the kind of physique i want at the end. I'm working towards it and now with your help, I'm sure of achiveing it.

Thanks alot for your reply adrian!

Approx. how many calories are burned doing a 10 minute sledge hammer workout in the morning? By the way love this workout hubby and I have been doing it now for two day and it really works!

I wish I knew but ll I can tell you is that it's a lot (NO DUH!!) but the thing is...

the harder a workout is = the less you need to worry about how many calories you are burning

January 16, 2013


Adrian! I have found that moving from the 8lb to 12lb sledgehammer makes a HUGE difference! Awesome workout!

March 24, 2012


Did this one and the 5 min workout twice this morning! GREAT workouts! Thanks!
