  • More 1 and 2 instructional segments

    Could I split More 1 and 2 Instructionals like this?? Right now, I can do about 14-17 min with full muscle activation depending a little on the moves, of course.

    More 1 instr

    PBS + Plié
    PBS + R/S + JT + the box
    PBS + OW + TTT
    PBS + 2 moves from Plié + Lunges Is it important to do Plié or another move before Lunges?
    PBS + 2 moves from Plié + Balance + HD

    More 2 instr

    PBS + Plié
    PBS + R/S + JT
    PBS + the box + TTT
    PBS + Pull the Weeds + Lunges Same question as above: Is it important to do Plié or another move before Lunges?
    PBS + Balance + Arms
    PBS + TTT + Pull the Weeds
    PBS + Arms + HD

    Yup, you are blessed to do so. My mantra is when in doubt do it even slower. Actually, whip out Total Superslow and just try doing that for 10-20 mins segment a day. Once you get thru Total Superslow 3 times, then you go back to do the easier More 1 & 2 Instructional, (easy is relative). Slow is also relative. Even Total Superslow has the title Total, but it is still applicable to More 1 and More 2.

    If you have bought the Broom workout (the retreat series), use that to improve your form for More. It is a clinic for More and stepping, but clinic/master class/instructional are used interchangeably when you are trying to perfect your form and techniques.

      Ayj, in this thread, I thought that you recommended me to start with the More Instructionals. But do you mean that I had better to start with the TSS anyway? Maybe I could altern them. Only doing TSS scares me a little...even if I will give it a try, maybe a segment per week plus the More instructional.

      I do mean that you are better off to learn the forms from Total Superslow first before you learn from More Instructionals. There is nothing to be afraid of if you are only learning 10-15 mins a day from Total SuperSlow.

      Ok, I understand what you mean, Ayj.

    This morning, I did the PBS from More 2, then Plié, R/S and JT from TWSS. It was about 20 min which is my sweet spot when I have already had a full meal so to say. I had my breakfast a couple of hours before so it was fine. This DVD makes me think of SF except that after the slow moves, there are some tempo ones. I do them in my own rhythm in order to be able to keep the full muscle activation. I will try to do segments of TWSS EOD if I don't feel like having some variety in between.

    Question: I am wondering if I need to do Plié before Lunges???

      Anna Lee, you are doing great!

      Your splits are fine, especially since you're doing PBS first at all times. It is not necessary to do Plies before Lunges. I know Teresa talks about how the first part of Total will fatigue the larger muscles so you're forced to use your core. But at the same time, if you have less core strength or even have adrenal fatigue which causes less muscle strength to begin with, it is better to conserve energy for proper form.

      Total Super Slow definitely has some good form explanations, and so does the newer digital Total. At the same time, many people are not able to handle the super slowness of it! That is where MORE shines! You can certainly get those workouts in the future and even just watch them and apply some of those tips and techniques as you can. I've always said that the MORE series provides a good foundation for all of T-Tapp!

        Trisch, thank you for your reply.

        As you wrote, Total Super Slow is great to watch and for learning proper form even if SF was my first master training for T-tapp form so to say. I will be able to use it as an encyclopedia and go back to it when needed for refreshing reminders. I am really inspired to learn the MORE series.

        Which workouts do you mean that I could get in the future?? I have Total Super Slow and the 3 MORE DVDs

      I am popping up this thread to ask you, Trisch, what you meant with "You can certainly get those workouts in the future and even just watch them and apply some of those tips and techniques as you can."

      Thank you in advance!
