Fitness Update: T-Tapp Workout
So if you’re anything like me, you’re probably thinking: what the heck is T-Tapp? I first heard about the T-Tapp workout a few weeks ago from a close friend (and fellow fibromyalgia sufferer) Karen from Faith, Family & Fibromyalgia. It was originally designed for anyone suffering from auto-immune disease, chronic pain or in need of physical therapy (unfortunately, that translates into peeps like me), but has now become a cult favorite amongst anyone trying to lose weight. The key to T-Tapp is its lengthening, elongating effect on the muscles, leaving most participants with enormous reductions in measurements (no matter what the scale says).
In my efforts to try T-Tapp for the next 30 days, I’ll be reporting my results both at 2 weeks in (that would be today) and the end of the month. I have to admit that at first the system feels a little peculiar compared to more prototypical workout programs. After a few tries, I began to ease into the fast paced, precise movements designed to stimulate the lymphatic system and motivate the immune system (much like Yoga with it’s twisting and focus on proper alignment). Despite the Yogi benefits, these exercises are completely different because they focus on pelvic tucks, and are done standing (without any added pressure on the joints). To avoid cross training in the wrong manner, I’ve done nothing except 15 minutes of T-Tapp per day (aside from some moderate walking, teaching dance and one random Zumba class). Check out the current results…
* Check In Point: 1/2 way through (30 days with T-Tapp)
* Time Devoted: 15 minutes per day
* Total Inches Lost: 1/2 inch from my waist already!
* Speak Up: What do you think of the T-Tapp results? Would you ever want to try it?
