Has anyone done TTapp? I have the instructional and rehab tapes and just bought the skin brushing system and the Hit the Floor workout.
When I was doing this regularly (before this last baby) I lost a few inches. Since this time I have had a hard time doing anything consistently. But I am making an effort to stick to this system for a good 8 weeks in hopes of fitting in my winter clothes.
I don't remember how many inches I lost last summer. I was doing it pretty consistently, and I was pretty thin when I started. I got pregnant right after, and then we moved, and well, it all fell apart.
I started doing it again about 6 weeks postpartum this time, but consistency is not my strong point with 3 kids under 5. I am trying again, and I got in 3 workouts last week, and 2 so far this week. I have lost about half the inches I gained during pregnancy, but I am also 6 months out, so I should have, since I am comparing to my 6 week measurements.
It all sounds kind of kooky, but I think it works. The idea is that you put yourself in alignment, concentrating on your core muscles and do the exercises in a very specific way. You don't really diet, and it isn't stressful on your joints. The website probably explains it better. I did the Hit The Floor last night, and I am sore in my abs. I also started the skin brushing, and whether it does anything or not, it feels great. Go read about it.
Let me what you think, and I will keep you updated on my progress.
OK, I measured today, and I am pretty happy with the results.
The scale is still up about 10 lbs from where I was when I was at my smallest recorded measurements. However, since the end of July, I am down 3 inches. I am now smaller in each leg than I was then (don't know how). I have 1.5 inches to go in my hips and waist and bust (but I am nursing, so fat chance there), and a 1/2 inch in my tummy. Isn't it amazing that 1/2 inch is the difference in 2 pants sizes, for me?
I plan to stick at a pace of every other day for another 2 weeks and measure again.
I have it and have done it.
The good: it really makes my back feel good and keep stiffness and pain in check
The bad: OMG it is BORING. I can't do it daily or even every other day for more than a week. I also think the DVDs are not well done. They look cheap (though I understand its a small cmpany with a small budget..).
I've toned up a bit from it but I don't find it does everything as promised. It's a nice compliment to a well rounded fitness program.
I agree that it can get boring. I try and do different DVDs/tapes on different days for the variety. I think tha tit realy targets my problem areas (tummy/waist) and that is why it is useful. Plus, I am very short torso-ed, and it is helpful with that. I do other things too, for exercise, and I do agree that it is a good compliment to other stuff. So far, though, so god.
And the biggest plus for me - I can do it at home, with no extra stuff and can start and stop as I need to - which is essential with 3 kids!
