Why does T-Tapp recommend working out LESS and why do you only need to work out a few times a week once you're at your goal? It seems so contradictory......

T-Tapp is a muscle building exercise, in order to have good muscle building results and not to be overly inflammatory to your body, you need to give your muscle proper rest (48 hours between workouts). More is not better. It is consistency and proper care to your body that makes the difference.
We have very fit trainers debulk by doing once every 3 days routine, and the inches never creep back.
You can do T-Tapp more often in the beginning, as we do not know how to activate 10-12 muscles group at the same time, we are lucky if we are holding 3-5 activation right in the beginning. As your ability, stamina and techniques improve, when you are doing 7 muscles activations at the same time, EOD is best.
The contradiction is only to the conventional workout programs that you exercise 1 or 2 sets of muscles at the same time. T-Tapp is not a conventional workout program, so conventional wisdom does not apply.

I know it seems crazy, Donna, but it's true! I was working out an hour a day before T-Tapp....and losing nothing. Got down to 15 minutes daily with T-Tapp, and started losing!
I remember hearing stories of being able to maintain once at goal on 1-2 workouts per week. I thought that was nice, but probably not me! I also thought that meant two Total Workouts per week. I have not done TWO all in one day for very long, so I figured I would need 4 short workouts to maintain.
I maintain now on 1 class per week! And that class is MORE! :D
As you get stronger, your muscles become more "efficient" and you seriously can get more out of 4 focused reps than you did all 8 at the start of T-Tapp!
It's pretty amazing to me, too!
One of the wonderful things about T-Tapp is it helps heal your metabolism (if you don't overdo it--I messed some things up doing too much T-Tapp and not eating enough--I think I shared that at the clinic??), and it also helps you get in tune to your body so you know when to push and when to back off.
Ayj is right--T-Tapp is different than conventional exercise programs! It truly is very comprehensive!
