T-Tapp – 8 Day Bootcamp

I decided to embark on a 7-10 day T-Tapp bootcamp. (Spoiler: I made it 8 days.) Below is my journey.

Overview
I did a little research on WHY you should do a T-Tapp bootcamp, and it sounds like the magic is in your body LEARNING T-Tapp. I’ve always shied away from bootcamps because of my past adrenal fatigue issues. My issues have improved greatly. In fact, I’m not sure if I actually had adrenal fatigue or anemia and host of related issues. I’ve been much better since about 6ish months after starting iron supplements. Despite the recommendation on the T-Tapp Facebook page, I’ve decided to try a bootcamp anyway! (Famous last words?)

My Background
I’ve been doing T-Tapp informally for almost three years (will be 3 years in July). At first I just did Basic Workout Instructional and Plus. I only originally did the instructional the first week or so, then moved into BWO+. At first, I probably did 3ish workouts a week. Over time, I was able to build up to some days doing 4-6 workouts. In December before I sold my house I was doing SOME T-Tapp every single day. I’d do the full Tempo workout every other day and PBS and a few other moves the other days. I have been steadily gaining weight the past 5-6 years, almost seemingly for no reason. I’d try low carb or fasting and would lose 3-8 pounds, then would stall and gain everything plus more back. Other times I’d step on teh scale and watch it climb 5 pounds here, 3 pounds there. I’ve never been officially diagnosed with anything, but I also don’t do the diagnosis chasing that’s easy to get in the routine of. I was told there’s nothing serious wrong. That’s all *I* needed.

After having good luck in December doing more T-Tapp workouts, and recovering from two weeks of heavy work moving, in late February I decided to start doing traditionally “harder” workouts (specifically, The Firm, which I LOVE). I made it about 9 weeks before my hip flexor started hurting and I ended up with piriformis pain, stopping me from all workouts. But my body was gaining endurance and strength until that point. And I was working out about 5 days a week. I felt good about that progress, but so frustrated with the hip, I decided to go back to T-Tapp since I’d never had issues there. The Tuesday after this decision was a Discount Tuesday. And it all fell together! More
