7 – T-Tapp Basic Workout Plus – I’m pretty excited to try this! I plan on putting this workout into action this week so I’ll keep y’all posted.
The Method involves activating muscle groups in particular sequences to improve body alignment and weight distribution. I read an inspiring testimonial about this workout and something called “dry brushing” which I have the brush too and will be following along with their recommendations on how to use it.
Here’s the quote I read that inspired me to try this! “I spend about 15 to 20 minutes almost every day on different DVDs and segments of her workouts, and then throughout the day (almost subconsciously now), I utilize many of her special techniques to make sure I am maximizing my posture and activating my muscles in the proper way for maximum effect,” she says. “I use an all-natural body brush with stiff plant fibers to allow optimal stimulation of my skin every time I shower. This helps with exfoliation, detoxification and improving circulation, which improves fascia fitness.”
