    Here are a few of my basic must have for T-Tapp when I was new.

    Practice Curling your Core, BEFORE workouts for a month.

    https://forum.t-tapp.com/forum/gener...-the-core-tips

    Master you lats and ribs up, it will do your adrenal a lot of good and manage your metabolism going forward https://forum.t-tapp.com/forum/main-...have-in-common

    If your knees are hurting, please try having your feet 4 inches apart. Toes forward means the outside edge of the feet are parallel.

    Practice East West Breathing
    https://forum.t-tapp.com/forum/gener...west-breathing

    Setting your schedule? Less is More. T-Tapp is 3 times as efficient as conventional workout. Divide your pre-T-Tapp workout duration by 3, that is likely the schedule you should do with T-Tapp. If you are working out 1 hour 6 days a week at the gym, you can do 15-20 mins of T-Tapp 6 days a week, or 30 mins every other day, or 45-60 mins once every 3 days.

    Primary Back Stretch, Organ in Place and Walking are free choice, you can do it everyday once or twice (a few minutes). Don't do the 30 mins version of PBS everyday, if you do the 20-30 mins version of PBS, that is a mini workout.

    Note to add, I did lose more than inch on my lower abs for doing Organ in Place for 5 times over a week while waiting for the book and DVD.

    Stepping the T-Tapp way is also 3 times as efficient as regular walking, so, don't over do, 20 mins is enough. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrDhCQFYnok&t=44s

    Off day, it really should be off, but if doing 5-10 mins of T-Tapp energize you, ok. If you are sick or you need to detox or get rid of elimination, I will suggest doing at least 5-10 mins of stepping everyday.

    Here are the great pick me up move you can choose from if you really really really want to do some movement:

    Diva Derriere
    https://forum.t-tapp.com/articles/tr...the-t-tapp-way

    If you have dance (like ballet), yoga and Pilate background, you are likely activating the T-Tapp way faster, you can easily over-train. Watch out for over-training signs(especially on no inch loss or even inch gain). http://web.archive.org/web/200708261...TOPIC_ID=15098

    Doing Nothing or just some stepping will help getting over the over-training fatigue and swelling.

    Water... A lot of water, before, during and after the workout. Just drink more water in general. Ribs up when you are sitting, wherever it is.

    Arms... Flappy arms or batwings? Senior Fit and Tempo Arms or sitting on the Floor workout. You need to activate you arms.

    Healing Crisis and detox symptoms... T-Tapp is a fat burning exercise, when fat that stored your old medicine, old emotion is released, you will encounter healing crisis and old emotional feeling surface. Water, stepping after 10 mins after workout, try EFT or Fast EFT and make sure your bowel is moving regularly. Congratulations, you are on your way to better health, you probably did not expect that T-Tapp is a detox program too, right?

    Come back here to ask questions.

    When you want to buy more DVD, here are my tips for what to buy next, so that you are not going waste too much money buying DVD that you will not use https://forum.t-tapp.com/forum/gener...at-to-buy-next

      Emotional Freedom Technique, not a T-Tapp move, but it is a Western invented self acceptance method with some meridian tapping. I am sure you can find that on Youtube. Find the one that is Brad Yates.

      For a newbie with history of major major back trouble, what would be the first workouts she should buy? I do Tempo 2, but I'm sure that's not where she should start. And with the bundle sale going on right now, I thought it would be a great time for her to get a starter pack and see if T-Tapp is something that could rehabilitate her back. Thanks for the help!!

        In general, More is good or back pain. Specifically, what is the back pain cause and where does it hurt will be needed to determine if floor workout like Brain Body Floor or First Step, or Senior Fit be better for her condition. Do not get hung up on the title of the DVD, they are all great workouts will rehab and give marvelous results.

        I agree with MORE, and I also agree that knowing what the back trouble is could alter that recommendation to Senior Fit. Either would be good overall for back trouble, but Senior Fit has more built into it to make it safer for seniors, which means less path of least resistance. Depending upon her trouble, Senior Fit could be a better choice. Can she bend over at the waist to where the head is level with hips or lower? If not, Senior Fit would be the better choice. HTH!

        BlessedMama, when you ask about bending at the hips, do you mean in general or without pain? I can bend over, feels kind of good, no pain. Later that same day, or next day my low back is really aching.

      Hi ???????? I’ve been doing t Tapp faithfully every other day now since doing a 2 week boot camp plus I started out with 2 weeks of the introduction of basic plus workout. I’m loving it!
      i have a question on form, I have a tendency to lean my upper body back behind my pelvis in an effort to keep “ribs up,” most of all during plies. I have trouble bending my knees and keeping my weight in the heels at the same time, and these tendencies make my body want to fall backwards during plies. (I hope that makes sense!!) I’ve never had great turnout from my hips, but I do try. I can’t bend my knees too deeply during plies or in the basic stance. Is this okay??? I feel like I should be more flexible!

        Hi Amanda, good to hear that you are enjoying the workouts. Are you using BWO+ or Total. There are many variations of the ribs up and the leaning back might be the first try and eventually, you will not just be leaning back, but to use your core to pull your ribs up by increasing the ribs to hip distance while maintaining the shoulder back (that is not pronating the shoulder or hunching).

        Have you tried curling the cores on the floor or against the wall? Please try that and get yourself center and getting used to how ribs up is supposed to be by leaning against the wall while curling your core... When you get used to using your abs and lats to ribs up and curling the core, you will be standing free from the bracing the wall and stand curling the core ribs up shoulder back that is not just leaning back while you do all standing T-Tapp moves (not just the Piles).

        Piles does not need to be bending your knees or lowering your hips so low, keep the activation at the core and pelvis is enough, and do not turn your feet so much. 11 O' Clock and 1 O'Clock for your feet position is good enough, it is not as invasive and your will still activate your knees, and inner thighs and hip well enough.

        Please visit the first embedded link for curling the core on the first post, and let me know how it works out for you.

        I agree, sounds like you are losing your core. Often the upper belly is weaker and we tend to either tilt the ribcage a bit to get "ribs up" or, as you experience, leaning back. The wall will be a great "in house trainer" to help you focus on belly button up and back to spine to flatten lower back against the wall. You can also think of "ribs up" as a string pulling your head tall to the ceiling, as well as thinking of an "elevator" lifting from your core up to the ribs. I hope that is helpful!
