Iím new to T-Tapp and have a question for the more experienced Tappers out there. The ribs on the right side of my body are sore to the touch and they hurt when I tuck. Has anyone experienced this before? Iíve been learning to Tapp for the past few weeks, and my ribs have hurt for about a week. Iím still using the instructional section of the Total Workout so that I can get the form down. I do Hoe Downs once or twice per day, and regularly check my posture for shoulders back, lats locked, and ribs up. Is my form so far out of whack that itís hurting my ribs, or does it hurt because Iím getting used to the moves?
Any comments or suggestions are much appreciated!
Have you had any prior injures?
I have and know that I need a chiro adjustment, so my rib pain is from a prior injury.
Sometimes I can feel if I did not have proper form and I will feel "enhanced" pain!
What is your age bracket? That could be a factor, too.
A Trainer will probably post here for you, but if not, remember that whenever you
purchase a T-Tapp WO, you get free support, so you can always call or e-mail the
T-Tapp office with your questions.
Never give up!

Thanks for your response. I dislocated my left knee in 2005, but no prior injuries to my ribs or back. Thatís not to say my spine couldnít use a little adjustment. Iím 30 years old (FYI). I lost a lot of muscle last year due to a ďcleansingĒ diet that left my body starving, so bye- bye muscle. Maybe I just need to be far more focused on my form, from head to toe?
Thatís a good reminder about the free support. I should probably give the office a call!
Thanks again, Piglet. Have a great day!
