15-30 Minute Miracle Workouts: Schedule Ideas 1

As promised, here are a few ideas of how you can put short T-Tapp workouts together.
I'm going to use the category keywords, Standing, Walking, Floor and Recovery. I'll
give an example of the very shortest of workouts you could choose out of that category
but you can choose which ever workout you prefer.

Taking it Easy, great for anytime you need a break but want to stay accountable
Day 1: Standing: Basic Workout Plus (BWO+)
Day 2: Walking: Step Away the Inches (SATI)
Day 3: Recovery: Warm-up Workout from Senior Fit (WUWO)
Day 4: Standing: BWO+
Day 5: Walking: SATI
Days 6 and 7: Recovery: WUWO
(You could replace SATI or BWO+ in the above schedule for Floor)

Kicking it up: Taking it up one notch from the above schedule
Day 1: Standing: BWO+
Day 2: Walking: SATI
Day 3: Floor: HTF moves I highlighted
Day 4: Standing: BWO+
Day 5: Walking: SATI
Day 6: Floor: HTF  moves I highlighted
Day 7: Recovery: WUWO

Doubles done sanely
Day1: AM-BWO+   PM-SATI
Day2: AM-BWO+   PM-Floor
Day3: AM-BWO+   PM-WUWO
Days 4,5 and 6 repeat the above schedule
Day 7 WUWO
The above schedule also works well if you use Healthy Hormones Menopause Management
(under 30 minutes) in place of BWO+ on one or all days. If you do that I would keep the
evening workouts short to avoid turning this into a Bootcamp of sorts - unless of course it's
a Bootcamp you're looking for.

 Times running out so I'm going to wrap this up. I just want to add that these short workouts can be great if you're trying to become more consistent with workouts but tend to burn out or hurt yourself when you attempt consistency. It's natural to scoff at the idea of a 15-20 minute workout but when it's T-Tapp every movement is doing triple duty so it works!

Another thing I see often is someone who is "afraid" to slow down and yet is being beat up by their current exercise schedule. A week or two at a slower pace isn't going to hurt you and just might help. Believe me, if you don't stop and give your body recovery time it will eventually demand it - usually in the form of an injury or bone deep exhaustion.

So what do you have to lose? Inches! Give it a try. ;)
