View Full Version : the first 4 days
02-20-2010, 05:50 PM
When someone is starting out with t-tapp, and they begin with the BWO+, they are supposed to try and do 4 days in a row to get started, right? Is that c onsidered a bootcamp, or is it only a bootcamp if you do a "full workout" for at least 4 days in a row? And, even if that's not considered a bootcamp, does it still count for your 4 days of getting your neurokinetic flow going? (does that question make sense?) I know I'm asking a lot of questions, but I have several ladies who want to join me to work out and I want to be able to give them correct information. :) :thinkingabout:

I am sure others are gonna jumping in but with the infos but as I have just finished my first boot camp....
You start with the Instructional 1, who's the samething than BWO+ but with instructions. You can do a boot camp. Teresa says it can be between 4 to 14 days. Go with what you feel comfortable. When you feel good with #1, you can go with BWO+ and do the moves without instructions. After, they recommend Instructional #2, it contains most of Total Workout.
BUT go with what you feel okay with, don't push to put you on a couch for few days after... :)
I haven't started #2 yet, I want to get better with BWO+ first. But it's my thing.
Hope it helps
Have fun with you friends doing T-Tapp !

Bootcamps are optional. While many people do start with them, it is not necessary. You can get great results by consistently doing the workout every other day (EOD).
Generally speaking a "bootcamp" is the Total Workout (TWO), 4 to 14 days in a row. But only if you're capable of TWO. Some people start with Basic Workout (BWO), learn that, and eventually work up to TWO. Some people start with MORE -- which is intended for people with more candles on the cake, more to lose, or those with other challenges (bad knees, diabetes, etc.). So yes, you can do a "bootcamp" with BWO+, but the trainers generally say you should only do that if you can't do TWO.

I have done two boot camps. My most recent one was a four day boot camp with MORE and it was so worth it. It was hard but it went really just like Teresa says, the third day being super hard and the 4th day so much easier and that day of rest so very wonderfully welcome then ready to GO for the every other day workouts.
You can use BWO+ if that is the level you are at. I beleive some people are at a level where they can do TWO, others at the BWO+ level and others who do MORE which in my mind is a glorified BWO+ with a few moves from TWO. Just the way I think of it really.
So, just my personal experience here but the bootcamp was worth it to get started and for me made a huge difference in how I felt about continuing to workout after that. It really opened up some muscle activation for me and some cleansing.
The first day I did it was good. Second day, sore, tired didn't want to do it did it anyway, felt strong. Third day, sore, not as sore but very, very tired, MADE myself do it and was glad I did in the end. Had an energy boost afterward and was tired in the evening and slept REALLY well. Fourth day, much easier and felt strong, great muscle activation. Got a tad sore but was on a high, felt so light and energetic. Fifth day of rest was very nice and got me ready to do another workout the next day. All and all a good experience that I think is something, in my humble opinion, everyone should give a try. 14 days just seems excessive to me unless you have been tapping a long time, Teresa suggests it so there must be a reason for it I just know the reason isn't someone like me because so far I cannot do it, I get overtrained. That is just for me personally. I don't know who does these 14 day boot camps but when I see someone say they do I am in AWE. I needed my rest that fifth day! Whew!

I just recently did my first bootcamp that l lasted longer than 3-4 days. This time I last for 6 days. Quite a feat for me.
But I absolutely couldn't have done a bootcamp in my early days. When I started I was struggling with too many health issues so I had to take 1-3 days off. I tried I will give me that. I was trying to be a real trooper but my body needed healing and that meant Tapping and resting. Eating well and resting. You get the theme. So don't worry if you can't complete a bootcamp it will come.
Tapping if you go to your all out max works regardless how long you do it. Give it time and consistency and T-Tapp will help your fitness and health issues.
Good luck let us know how you do!

I'm gonna go for it! I plan to do the bootcamp this Monday thru Thursday.... I think I'll need a little prayer or two, though!! :D

And like Clarity said, be sure to start with Instructional #1. If you've already done that several times and have moved on to BWO+, that's fine for your bootcamp. Just go to YOUR max whatever workout you do!

I know this was bumped by a scammer, but it is a good question. Cheri, you probably got in your bootcamp since it was a few weeks ago, but do not let your friends get discouraged if they cannot do any type of bootcamp. It took me 6 months before I was well enough to do a little four day BWO bootcamp. I am much stronger now and did a 10 day Tempo Arms/HTF bootcamp at the beginning of the January Jumpstart. I thought I wouldn't be able to move at day three, but worked through it and am glad I did.
One should only do a bootcamp about every six months or if you have missed Tapping for a month or so. They are good at getting that mind/body connection, but not too often. Good luck to you and your friends.
