    Default Tell me about Tempo ARMS

    I can't log into my Tapp Store account so I'm wondering if any of you can tell me a little about Tempo Arms. Is it just the BWO+ with a few extra arm moves from TWO?

    I love doing the BWO+ 3 times a week and it helps every part of my body except my arms. I need some extra bang for my buck/time so to say and am trying to figure out how to get my arms moving more during BWO+. I already fast forward through TW0 (after doing the BWO+ section) and add the arm moves or pop in Tapp Core and use those arm moves.


    So many of us prefer the shorter work outs like BWO+, SATI and MORE (I've not done MORE just heard many people like Trisch mentioning it as a powerful short workout.) Is there a power packed workout that includes all the moves in BWO+.

    I understand that we all get more out of the workout when we go to our personal max but there must be a way to ramp it up a bit more. Anyone else had this thought?

    Thanks for sharing a little more about Tempo Arms.

    Tempo Arms is like what you say, Tempo Bwo for the first 13 mins, then 10 reps of two arm sequence and then swimmer arms and skiing, the 2 sets of hd. Two arm sequence was beefed up too. you got 3-4 times the dosage of the arms.

    In addition, there is less up and down move to distract, the 10+ mins arm only standing tuck butt klt really burn the abs and arms.


    I found TA more cardio than Tempo Torso. Very intense 28 mins.

    Tempo Arms does have a few moves not on TWO. I really like it--although I'd say Tempo Lower Body is my favorite of those three Tempos. Mainly because by the end of TA your calves and thighs are BURNING from standing in KLT for most of that time! LOL!

    Each Tempo has a slight variation in the BWO+ part, but all are very good. Charlotte and I both lost in the lower body as well as arms from doing a 5 day TA bootcamp once!

    Basic Tempo takes BWO+ up a notch--the 4 slower reps then 4 to tempo does more than you think it would! I used to use that a lot--I might have to dig it out!

    Lucy, I think it was Sue from Indy who told me she did Tempo Arms to get ready for her dd's wedding, and she had better arms than the young bridesmaids!

    Maybe it was TWO, but either way--what a testimony to T-Tapp!

    So am I correct in understanding that the first part of Tempo Arms has NO extra arm movements--just the original BWO?

    Yes, first 13 mins is Tempo BWO, I think it has more than 8 reps, but then I am still in my flu brain and I did it 4 days ago, way too long to be fresh. If I do it latter today before SATI, I will write back the details min by min, so that you know what you are getting.

    The thing is since it is Tempo Arms, starting from PBS, you are reminded to tweak your arms to the max, I guess that is the difference, the whole 28 mins, no slacking off with you arms. So, after my TA bootcamp, I am more aware of no wasted move for all other DVD, whether she reminds me or not.

    Yes, BUT she adds tweaks for max arm activation. Something you can take into your other workouts! I often do BWO+ from one of the Tempos for variety.

    I seem to recall it has 10 reps instead of 8? I do it 2x a week and for the first time in my life feel comfortable wearing sleeveless tops. Pretty good for someone who used to put shoulder pads in EVERYTHING years after they went out of style!
