HI Celestia and congratulations on your inch loss!! That's great! In answer to your question, after a bootcamp, you should only do Total W/O every other day, or every two days. You need to take at least ONE day completely off each week. Contrary to what is touted in the fitness world, this can backfire with inch loss with T-Tapp workouts. So many muscle groups are being worked at the same time that you need a day off for your muscles to have time to rest. If the muscles are tired, it's harder to activate them to your personal max. ability. You could do a short workout like Basic WO+ on the in-between days. You can do PBS everyday, and you can do hoe downs everyday, but not 20 sets...lol The general rule of thumb is 15-20 mins. is considered a short workout.
I would encourage you not to move too quickly into the advanced workouts. Having great form/alignment on each move is the aim. The TWO becomes advanced the more near-perfect form you can achieve. Your form/alignment will always be improving which is why T-Tapp is progressive in that you'll never outgrow it. If you don't have it, TWO SuperSlow is a great DVD for working on improving your form and alignment. It's a clinic with LOTS of teaching in it for getting better form/alignment. Teresa explains a lot of the reasons for why the move is done in a certain way, etc. (It's NOT easier b/c it's slow...just sayin'...) MORE is also a great workout. It lays a great foundation. When you do advance to Lady Bug, etc., you'll be glad you have a great foundation to on which to build. I think Ayj mentioned this already, so I'm just chiming in.
These are my thoughts. Enjoy those babies. They do indeed grow up FAST!! My "baby" will be 25 the first of May. Hard to believe.
